    Easy Rider

    What luck! I was looking for this DVD for a long time and the lady at Barnes and Noble at Mall of America Bloomington MN told me to take a look in the $9.95 box and see what I come up with. As a biker closing on 200,000 kms I thought that this movie would make my day in the long winter month of February when all I could to between shovelling snow was to say hello to mine and my brothers bike waiting patiently in the garage for spring to come along.
    Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper take us on the ride that we all want to go on. Fresh air, bugs on our teeth and a destination stated but not necessarily the first place we go.
    Fans of Harley Davidsons and good music will ride along with these two bros and see the countryside better than any car can provide. Remember what Jack Nicholson's character says when he tells us that what people fear most of bikers is that we have the freedom that they so desperately want.
    Purchase, lay back and ride on bro because this picture gives us bikers the great desire to be on the road again.

    Seeing the IRONY is the key to enjoying and understanding the film.

    NO NO...NO. This is not a ''biker movie'' or a Harley movie. It is a great film because it is/was a modern update of... THE WESTERN. Billy and Wyatt (get the names?)cross John Ford's America on their ''horses''(one gets a flat changed in an endearing scene as a horse gets reshoed next to it in a barn)and learn that what Jack's character says is very likely to be true, ''this USED to be a really great country.'' Everything the public at large has come to think that this film stands for is shown for the sham it really is. The film's main points are exactly opposite of what people think they remember the film being about. Hard drugs become mainstream and are part of the end of the idealistic '60s. Billy and Wyatt score the big score and go to Florida to retire, getting high along the way, and too late does Fonda realize they have wasted their lives. Acid trips turn nightmarish. Hippies in communes are starving. The movie says, yes, it would be nice if we could all just drop out and be free and peace and love and all that stuff...but you are totally naive if you believe in that dreamland. The film's score and lyrics are also used intellegently to underscore the irony and become characters themselves. The editing and jump-cuts are inventive and quite welcome in our modern independent film crazy time.

    Great movie

    If your in to Harleys this is the movie for you. It's basically what gave ''bikers'' the image the have today. That and James Dean. One of Jack Nicklson's first Rolls. He playes a redneck laywer from Texas that is picked up by these two hippy bikers. On a wild adventure across the country to Florida
