Point Break: Pure Adrenaline Edition
Now Available on DVD
Indubitably the finest motion picture ever created, 1991's Point Break follows FBI Agent Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) as he goes undercover to bust "the Ex-Presidents," surfing bank robbers who're led by the lethally charismatic Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). In honor of the recent special-edition DVD of the film, here are a few of our very favorite moments, along with the exact moment they occur in the film.
• Whooooaaaa! (11:44)—While swigging Jack Daniel's and Corona in the police station, Johnny Utah and his partner, Angelo Pappas (Gary Busey), figure out who the Ex-Presidents are. "The Ex-Presidents rip off banks to finance their endless summer!" Busey proclaims as he jumps onto a desk and pretends to surf. "Whooooooooaaaa!" shout Keanu and Gary in unison.
• Totally Tubular (27:36)—"Over the last two weeks, you two have produced exactly squat! SQUAT!" Keanu and Gary's dickhead boss shouts. "Now for Christ's sake, does either one of you have anything even remotely interesting to tell me?" Keanu does: "I caught my first tube this morning... sir."
• Jackin' Off to the Sears Catalog (10:14, 1:35:15)—Gary Busey's an amazing actor. Here are two of his sweet monologues. To Keanu: "Listen, you snot-nosed little shit! I was takin' shrapnel in Khe Sanh while you were crappin' in your hands and rubbin' it on your face!" To his dickhead boss: "Harp, I wanna tell you something. I was in this bureau while you were still poppin' zits on your funny face and jackin' off to the lingerie section of the Sears catalog!"
• Still Surfin' (1:52:48)—"You gotta go down," Keanu tells Swayze in the film's soul-shattering climax. "You crossed the line, and people trusted you, and they died." "Yeah, it went bad," Swayze responds. "It went real bad. Life sure has a sick sense of humor, doesn't it?" Then Swayze gets to the really important question: "You still surfing?" "Every day," Keanu responds. Man, Point Break 2 is going to be so good.
