Really bad cycling movie.

With all the uproar around here about masi tribute treks, i thought i would NOT reccomend a movie called Break Away. https://m.imdb.com/title/tt2770694/
It totally sucked and on top of it Phil Liggett let his integrity be stained by being in it. It is the fake Breaking Away. Dont waste your time.

X2, and fixed is fun.

I've tried to watch the original Breaking away with wife and kids more than once. They though it was corny so I gave up.

Two, and only two good scenes in that movie.

1. Training with Eddy
2. 7 second rear wheel change by Rae Dawn Chong

We all practiced that wheel change until we could at least match that tie.

If that ain't a porno movie, I don't know what is.

Hoping I'm the first to reply with that...

I always thought it was funny to refer to movies by the title of the pr0n parody they inspired.

Although I like to think myself rather experienced and worldly, and that there’s not a lot that can leave me shocked or feeling dirty...

I just wasn't prepared for “Shaving Ryan’s Privates.”

Well, I was going to post a picture but thought it might get me banned or worse yet, incur the wrath of Bianchigirll.

For anyone interested in viewing the trailer:

I don't see any Masi's in this one, so I'm pretty sure we don't have to worry about anyone trying to recreate a bike from this movie.

Daniel Stern from Breaking Away was in that one.

My first thought when the (serious) movie came out was that it should be titled "Saving Ryan's Privates". After all, the plot is the attempt to save the life of the last living male sibling of the family so the family line can go on.
