They should have waited until March-April to release it IMO.
I suspect they wanted to get the DVD on the shelves before the holidays, and they're getting that done. Any money they'll get from a one time showing in a few movie theaters is a bonus, but not enough to change the release date.

I'm not going because its in Atlanta, and its on a MONDAY NIGHT (what genius makes it happen on a friggin' MONDAY?). The movie looks great, can't wait to see it. But I will be seeing it on DVD in my house with my flat screen, a fire, and a bourbon or three.

They extended the deadline in Birmingham and more people bought tickets so it may still shown if about 15 more buy tickets.

Saw this movie tonight in Ft. Lauderdale. I really enjoyed it and am so glad I saw it on the big screen. Most people clapped at the end.

I'm sure someone will come up with before and after extracurricular activities. I plan on participating so I can justify the long trip down from Huntsville. It's not just a movie but also a chance to meet some fellow riders.

I've been to see the movie. I traveled 1.5hrs each way to meet up with some fellow ADVer's to hang out at a local Applebee's before the movie and shoot the shit.

The movie was filled with families who ride, patch holder bikers, sleezie bikers, some sleezie ADV riders myself included.

The movie itseld has something for everyone. No matter what your decipline. Yea sure as someone else said. "I know why I ride"... I too was bit by the bug at age 6 and at 50+ I still ride Hare Scrambles/Enduros' and the occasionally Rally!!!

I Hope this Movie comes to my area again so that I have the ability to see it again with my Wife and Kids (3 & 4yrs old) this time. I want them to see it so they know why it is that Daddy drags them out to different places all summer to go riding. Pretty soon They will be out on the trails telling me why they too ride!!!!

I you go see this movie and at some point Don't feel that lump come into your throat your really NOT that into motorcycles as you might think you are!!!

Hey redbud!!
I liked it, but it's no On Any Sunday. (even though Mert is featured)
Well worth a look without doubt, but the soundtrack is AWFUL imo and distracting!!!
it's a little sappy and a little preachy but worth every bit of 12 bucks.

all true MRX!
I figure the best audience for this are kids in a moto family. Hard to resist the draw of a family that rides together.
