Great feel good movie. A must see for all those that love Hawaii!
9 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe I was just on a high having spent 10 days in Hawaii, but seeing "The Ride" on my flight home made me feel like I was flying back to Hawaii, not to California.

The storyline was excellent, the no-name actors made it real, the scenery was fantastic, and the music was great. I'm sure movie critics could have their way picking this film apart, but it just made me feel good and it allowed me to escape. Isn't that what movies are supposed to do? What a great idea for a film.

Could you imagine a modern day baseball player going back in time only to grow up being friends with Babe Ruth as a boy? The fantasy of going back to 1912 and growing up as buddies with Duke is a great one, and couple that with old Hawaii (before all of the tourists) and you have a winning movie.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone that wants to be entertained, especially if you are tired of all those goofy Hawaiian movies made for tourists. This is a definite winner!
