Nicole Kidman’s most important role

14 03 2011

Bet you never thought you would see a headline like this on CR, did you?

Tomorrow, March 15, Severin films is releasing the cult classic, BMX Bandits, on DVD and Blu-Ray.

It features a young Nicole Kidman at the start of her career.

Little did she know it would be her most important role to date.

There’s so much old school cheesiness…it’s hard to look away.

Check out the trailer.

Wonder if this will prompt the powers-that-be to finally release RAD on DVD?

We can only hope.

I found a copy at a dollar store two summers ago…judging by it’s dodgy cover I doubt it was an “official” version either.

The ones on eBay are not “official” Rad DVDs. Someone just put it on DVD. Check out all the online petitions to get it released on DVD. That being said, I got one as a gift and the quality was pretty good.

Yea, my copy of rad is pretty high quality too. I think it was dubbed off of some Canadian cable channel or something. This summer is the 25 year anniversary of Rad!!! They are doing an event in Cochran Canada where it was filmed. Would be so bad ass to go.

Not to keep taking away from Nicole, cause I know she is getting pissed, but I have Rad on my phone. That way when somebody I know hasn’t seen it I make them at least watch the intro at the Upland park and the paper delivery route…haha. Classic!!

Has everyone seen the Tosh.o sketches with Cru Jones?

I think the Family Guy one that Ed posted a while back is the best parody. But that one is pretty good. I heard that Tosh.0 guy used to be a BMXer back in the day? He can sure talk shit like a BMXer…haha.

BMX Bandits was one of the first things i recorded when i got cable and a DVR. it came up in a search for BMX. It in SD tho.

nicole looked good in leathers- leggy and cute. you’d definitely want to see her at your local track!

in the studio clip above- the girl with her helmet on backward is a real hoot!

Is this the summer of the BMX movie? | cruiser revolution

[…] Remember when Rad and BMX Bandits were on the big screen? Those were heady times…filled with so much promise. It seemed like BMX had made it…at least to the big screen. (Heck, even Nicole Kidman appeared in BMX Bandits!) […]
