Quotes

Diane Armani: You really enjoyed this life, don't you? Always traveling.
Eddie Wilson: Still missed Jersey.
Diane Armani: [snorts] And what's so special about Jersey?
Eddie Wilson: Baby, there's nowhere else in the world like the Garden State! You got miles of swamps, and mountains of dumps... different colored rivers... automobiles graveyards... breweries, factories, ballparks, all mixed up together. It's the best place to live.
Diane Armani: Uh-huh? Then why does the Statue of Liberty face the other way?
[they both laugh]
Eddie Wilson: [jokingly] That was cruel!

I loved it!!!
6 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a fun movie to watch in these times when everything else is total chaos. My husband and I watched both of them in two weeks after the person who recommended mailed me #2. My other brother sent me the sound track for both of these movies! I have played it every day sense then. I would love Eddie and the Cruisers 3. It so reminds us of the innocent times when we went to hear bands whose music we could sing to. When dancing at a local hangout, and the bands where you cheered on to be successful. That actually played the music versus having the sounds made by machines! This is one set of movies I will watch again and again. I don't care whose music it sounded like, it reminds us all of more fun times. I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!1
