Dudes is a 1987 American adventure comedy film directed by Penelope Spheeris and written by Randall Jahnson.


Two punks, or "dudes", (Jon Cryer and Daniel Roebuck), from the big city are traveling across the country in a Volkswagen bug. They try to embrace the western way when they are forced to take revenge against a gang of lowly rednecks for killing their friend. Along the way, they get help from a young woman who runs a wrecking service.[1]
