The Zoo Gang is a fantastic teen movie!
Directed by Pen Densham (The Kiss) and witten by Densham and Stuart Birnbaum (Summer School)

The cast is awesome:

Tiffany Helm (Friday V, Reform School Girls) Jason Gedrick (The Heavely Kid, Iron Eagle)
Eric Gurry (Bad Boys, Willy/Milly) Marc Price (Trick or Treat, The Rescue)
Gina Battist and Jackie Earle Haley.

It was funny to see Price crossdressing again (did the same in The Rescue which i just watched).
Earle Haley was also very funny as one of the bullying Donnely brothers.

I loved the club scene in the beginning and the band called Living Dolls was great!
Nice fashion throughout the flick and let´s not forget the funny training montage.

The soundtrack rules but i could find only one song on YouTube (nice Rick Springfield style tune):

Gary O' - Get It While You Can

Highly recommended!

I remember this movie it's been a long time. The only thing I really remember is the kid driving the van

Kinda cheesy, but watchable.

This movie is a must for any Jason Gedrick fan, but Jackie Earle Haley looks ridiculous with that glow in the dark hair.

Logan5 .. cheesy? really? .. "Step out of your pants and start walking"

Made in Canada... a lone biker rides into town... a training sequence near the end. This is a b-movie with a capital 'B'.

I kinda liked the 2nd lead girl. Shame she didn't do more.

Eric Gurry is a mini-80's legend.
