Let me say this about the film - while it was definitely interesting, it is
about as much a bicycle movie as was Harold and Maud.


But "Harold and Maude" had a mid-sixties Jaguar XKE hearse. You don't
see that every day, do ya?

and Maud.


=v= How many movies can boast the following:

o Someone finding his/her true calling, liberty, joy,
and (*ahem!*) optimal physique with a bicycle?

o Someone truing a wheel at the dinner table?

o A bicycle-powered record player?

o The absolute pinnacle of computer-generated imaging, finally
being used for the noblest purpose possible: animating the
movements of bicycles?

o Le Tour?

o A butcher's shop window display featuring a moving
stuffed pig on a bicycle with tires made from links
of sausages?

o A snippet from Jacques Tati's _Jour_de_Fête_?

I was glad to go see it but I wouldn't see it a second time.


=v= I saw it twice, each time surrounded by bike freeeks. :^)

=v= I love movies where trees get saved and cars get smashed.
But that's just me. :^)

My wife went and saw it last night (and quite enjoyed it). One comment
she made was that there were a number of things in the films she would
not have understand or found amusing a couple years ago. i.e. Before I
would babble on endlessly about bicycle things to her.

1) If a programmer's modification of an existing program
works, it's probably not what the users want.

Then don't post like that and maybe you'll find some friends who aren't
animated cartoons. And since when did Henry go out with you?
