Side Out might be the best movie ever

by Jason Schock at 11:37 PM

Flipping through channels tonight, and I landed on the final scene in the movie, Side Out. I haven't seen this movie in years, and I don't know why it's not in my small - but carefully chosen - DVD collection.

It might be as terrible/awesome as Green Flash looks.

There are some quality film moments with Randy Stoklos acting like a cave man, and Sinjin Smith getting real bitchy when Stoky messes up.

B-Movie fixture C. Thomas Howell, and his partner played by Peter Horton, look surprisingly skilled on the court, passing, setting, and hitting bombs on what occasionally appears to be a 6-foot net.

The quality of play inexplicably drops on the final point, and I el-oh-elled heartily as the good guys in hot Mossimo shorts won the match with the most illegal hand-set ever by Howell to the ugliest dropped-elbow spike by Horton.

Buy this movie now.

Here is a poll for you - who would win in a volleyball duel - C. Thomas Howell, or Danny Kinda?

My favorite line in the whole movie is when O. B. calls a guy "cheesedick."
