Trivia

The San Diego freeway scene (where an elevated high occupancy vehicle exit ramp is seen) was filmed on U.S. Highway 290/Northwest Freeway) heading southeast into Houston, TX. A Stop-n-Go billboard advertisement is visible - in real life, Stop-n-Go was a former convenience store chain which was purchased by Diamond Shamrock, now owned by Valero Energy Corporation.

Goofs

The 'Welcome to Newport Beach' sign seen during the chase is obviously fake - the sign with the fountains is actually the Mecom Fountain located in the Houston, TX Museum District. See more »

Quotes

Uncredited Clown: [after ending credits] You smell that? Do you smell that? Nothing else in the world smells like that, son. I love the smell of napalm in the morning! You know, one day we had a hell bomb. And when I walked out, we didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. But that smell, that gasoline smell... the whole hill, it smelled like... victory.

Terror on the freeway baby...yeah!!!
14 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie just seems to have a special place in my heart, it reminds me of freshman year in high school, VHS tapes and summer vacation (damn I miss that sh!t). Where else can u get Henry Rollins as a douchebag cop who thinks he's Dirty Harry, his partner the revolting blob, Anthony Kiedis and Flea in their hillbilly white trash Monster truck, Cary Elwes as Steve Horsegroovy the super cheesy anchorman, Tigers blood in a clown suit, Angela from "Who's the Boss", Ron f-ing Jeremy, and the mega babe known as Kristy Swanson...no where else that's where! The Chase is not an action movie, sure there's action in it but its a comedy and its meant to be satirical (especially involving the media and the way they like to blow EVERYTHING out of proportion) and it's not high brow comedy, but its effective. If u haven't seen this flick check it out, I mean i enjoy artsy movies and indies as much as the next guy but sometimes a good dumb comedy is just what the doctor ordered. So just sit back, kick your feet up and enjoy the ride.
