Where can i get a copy of this movie
20 January 2005 | by mountcarSee all my reviews

I saw the roller boys when it first came out on video in the UK and loved it to death. Not only did it have my teen idol in but the plot was different to what was out at the time. I would love to see the roller boys again so as to relive my younger days but along with my sister we have been trying to find this film for years. We both thought that we were mad as nobody seemed to remember the film let a lone have it. Lucky last week we realized we weren't mad as in the same day we found two people who had heard of it unfortunately we were still unable to find it.So please please if you can spare a copy or know where i can get one please let me know.
