Audience Reviews for Dudes


I love this movie, another underrated film from the 1980s. Jon Cryer and Daniel Roebuck star as Punkers who's friend is is killed and go after their friend. Catherine Mary Stewart is so awesome, she is great in any film, loved her in "The Last Starfighter" and "Night of the Comet".
