I ride an Indian and I still think this movie sucked.

I really looked forward to seeing this movie. I ride and I was hoping for a good biker movie as there aren't too many, but this was a horrendous film. Poor acting, awful writing, rediculous situations, the only good parts were the cut scenes when they were riding down the road. Nice scenery, beautiful bikes and no dialogue, if only the whole move was just bikes riding down the road, passing amazing scenery, this movie would have been a whole lot better.

FULFILLING A DREAM

I wasn't sure what to expect with the movie AMERICAN DRESSER. I mean I've pretty much enjoyed every movie I've ever seen that featured Tom Berenger. But this is an actor who has lost favor in Hollywood, one of the many who have aged (well enough) but are no longer in what that business considers their prime. That's Hollywood's loss because there are still some great stories to be told using actors in that age bracket. This is one of those.

Berenger plays John Moore, a Vietnam vet whose wife Sandra (Gina Gershon), the love of his life, has passed away. He's taking it hard and taken up drinking to solve fill his loss. Needless to say this does not endear him to his two daughters. Reading a letter he comes across in his wife's things he sets out on a journey to discover not only himself but something he never realized existed. He dusts off the old motorcycle, tunes it up and gets ready to head out.

But he won't be alone. Fellow vet and best friend Charlie (Keith David) tells him he's coming along in spite of the fact that he's just recovering from an accident and about to lose a leg from that. He also announces he's marrying his longtime girlfriend. But John relents and the pair set out for their last "ride of a lifetime".

The pair travel for a while and end up outside a rough and tumble biker bar. There they meet Willie (Carmine Cangialosi who also wrote and directed the film) in the parking lot, another bike rider on the road who offers to help John with an issue with his bike. Turning him down they enter the bar only to find a biker itching for a fight. Charlie thinks he has things under control but when push comes to shove a fight breaks out and Willie jumps in to save the pair, hitting the road with them and away from the bar.

While Charlie isn't fond of Willie, John takes a liking to him and allows him to join their trip as far as he'd like. Their adventures on the road take them down several paths. One is the home of Vera (Penelope Ann Miller), Charlie's soon to be wife's cousin's house. Another is a vet named King (Bruce Dern) who lives out of his van which includes his own classic bike. And how could a movie be about bike riders without including scenes at Sturgis?

On the way John has to deal with his drinking problem, the issues that come up on the road (including an arrest and beating of Charlie by police who suspect him of murder) and the letter that he found. What was in that letter anyway? Until he reaches the coast none of us know.

What makes the movie work is that it talks about an issue all of us will face one day, aging and dealing with that. This makes the actors perfect for the roles they take on here. But compounding that issue is one of loss. John has not only lost the love of his life but is lost without her. The pair were supposed to be making a bike trip together which was shot down when she became ill. Now he must fulfill their dream on his own and find himself along the road.

Some have called the movie cliché in parts but aren't all movies a bit cliché when it comes to themes? There are only so many core stories to tell and it is the wrapping around those stories which make them good, bad or indifferent. I for one enjoyed this tale as well as the performances of all involved. Then again I'm getting older too so maybe that's part of it. My guess is that the movie might not hold a lot of meaning for those under 30 but for everyone else you'll dream of riding on the road with the wind in your face like John and Charlie. If you can't then this movie will give you that chance.

From a Chopper Rider POV

A light movie that captures the pleasure of being a free rider. The main plot could avoided some cliches but at the end still a good entertainment. Recommend for riders
