I’ve seen many a bad movie in my years but this one takes the cake. From the awful awful outfits (JFC, who the hell wears plastic overalls? And what’s up with everyone wearing dirty clothes?!? And that Cody guy with his “cool” farmers outfit?), to the “fan” that joins the group for ten minutes, becomes Ellen’s best friend for all of two scenes and is never seen again? And don’t even get me started on when Cody punches Ellen across the face to knock her out, again, for reasons unknown. This film should come with a manual—it’s so freaking confusing.
This Amazonian said it best so I’ll leave you with his review and the trailer for the movie but before I go, permit me to give you some wise words: RUN, RUN AND HIDE FROM THIS CRAP!
How is this a 5 star movie?, August 8, 2006

First of all thank god I didn’t buy this, I saw it on cable the other night. This is a STUPID movie! Absolutely EVERYONE in it was overacting, especially Rick Moranis. Michael Pare was trying to sound too much like John Wayne meets Wiseguy. Willem Defoe looks creepier then than he does now.
The story is very silly, some bikers (for no reason in the world) led by Willem Dafoe’s character take this female rockstar singer (played by Diane Lane) that happens to be a former flame of Michael Pare’s character named Cody. They concoct a weak plot to get her back. Along the way they pick up some tough chick who was totally overacting and unconvincing to help them out (in the meantime she makes some much needed money, as she is down on her luck). They also accidently pick up some male singers in a a small mini bus.... the reason is beyond me. I guess the more help the better. They didn’t help much.
It was so easy to get the girl back it made me wonder what is the purpose of this movie. I mean he gets her, brings her back home, then goes back to get Willem Dafoe’s character in a cheesy brawl in front of all his motorcyle mates. This movie reminds me of a videogame by CAPCOM or something.
And what was with the time period they were trying to portray? The cars looked like they were from the 50’s, but yet everyone’s clothes looked like 1984? Then we have some inaccuracies in dance moves. At the end, one of those blues singers they picked up before starts moonwalking like Michael Jackson?!? COME ON!!
