Storyline

Peter Fonda plays 'Heavenly Blues', the leader of Hell's Angels chapter from Venice, California while Bruce Dern plays 'Loser', his best pal. When they both botch their attempt to retrieve Loser's stolen bike, Loser ends up in the hospital. When the Angels bust him out, he dies, and they bury him. Nancy Sinatra plays Mike, Blues' "old lady" and Diane Ladd plays Loser's wife (Dern's real-life wife at the time). The plot is basically a buildup to the last half-hour of the film in which Loser's funeral becomes another wild party. Written by alfiehitchie

Fun Biker Flick
16 January 2001 | by (San Fransisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. Although I can't see how the hell Peter Fonda was able to get acting roles back then, guess it's because of his dad. He was good in Easy Rider, but in this one and The Trip, what the hell was going on? I like the soundtrack too, Davie Allan and the Arrows rock! The film has a good story line and is thoroughly enjoyable. Bruce Dern is believable, though he plays a corpse that is dragged around over half the film, still. I haven't seen the DVD version, and don't want to. Movies like this are best enjoyed when they come on rarely late at night when likely no one will be watching. The same applies with:

Psych-Out, Savage Seven, The Trip, Hell's Angels on Wheels, Glory Stompers, Cycle Savages, Rebel Rousers, Wild in the Streets, Hell's Angels 69, Run Angel Run, etc.
