This movie is fun ride.
14 September 2006 | by moritzvon87See all my reviews

I saw the new version of this movie last month at a sneak preview in New York. I also saw the original film in 1997. I remember thinking the film was sweet and funny but I felt as though it was missing something, but I couldn't put my finger on what. I heard that the director had re- released the film from a friend of mine and we went to see the 'sneak sneak preview' of the new film. The director put in the music from Colin Fitz. It made a big difference. It blends together all of the elements, the fan interviews and the film footage. Aside from the music, he added some new interview footage from the fans, never seen before. They are really funny. It is hard to pick which fan is my favorite! I really like this film. It is not a big blockbuster, with lot's of special effects or gimmicks. It is just a really good script with some really good actors. There is something to be said for that. It is just a really nice ride, cruising along with the top down and the radio on. If it ever comes your way, you should try and see it.
