Strengths:    A heart-warming movie that managed to reap heaps of critical praise despite being a "cycling" movie. It's hard not to empathize with the growing pains that the "cutters" are going through. Good acting, good plot, and a fun trip back to the days of downtube shifters and toe clips.

Weaknesses:    None. Saw it at least 4 times over the years and it only improves with age.

Bottom Line:   
Great movie.

Favorite Ride:   Cool, dry, and hilly
