We did. The night it opened. We go see damn near every motorcycle movie, you know.

It wasn't as bad as you may think, but be prepared with very low expectations. Then you can enjoy it.

It was actually filmed in Melbourne.

The Stadium U2 played at in Melbourne is featured, at least when I saw the trailer for it.

I might wait for DVD for this one though.

Wait for the dvd. Wait till you're walking down the street and someone drops it and doesn't notice it. Then pick it and take it home.

Melbourne? That would explain why absolutely NONE of the Texas parts looked like Texas.

I was initially curious about it, but the trailer looks super-lame, I immediately distrust a movie which sells itself with lame puns.

What about good puns?



Anyway, this movie looks like crap. Don't think I'll be seeing it...ever...

has Nicolas Cage done anything worth watching in the last couple years? i personally don't think he's a terrible actor but it's as if he never reads a movie script and signs on to whatever is thrown his way.

(yea yea Adaptation was good and Weather Man was okay)

That made me laugh out loud...

Cage is touch and go as far as I'm concerned, Lord Of War was pretty good but the whole The Rock/Con Air/Gone in Sixty Seconds Trilogy makes me want to hurt someone and even worse; The Family Man makes me want to hurt myself...

How bad is it from 1-10? I'm looking for a date movie with very little movie involved, so it might be a winner.

I really did love it, for its badness of course. And, it does have date appeal. My husband kept pointing out that having a date who would grab you at the "scary" moments would be a good thing. But he's a bit of a perv.

I'd honestly give it a 2. It was really fun to see just how bad it would go. The cgi effects range from pathetic to decent, and the realism of the plot and scenes ranges from jaw-dropping to annoying.

Take your date, but not a first date. She might look at you funny afterwards.

This happened to me once. I found Get Rich Or Die Tryin' (and a bunch of other DVD's) in a pile on this shelf in Wal-Mart...plus a half-eaten cupcake. Same aisle too. I didn't take them though.

Were they still wraped in plastic with price tags on 'em? Cuz if you did take them that would be stealing....

They were laying there on a shelf next to bread, unwrapped, without cases.
