I wish they had consulted with you on some of the details before production.

I too have a gripe about the historical accuracies of this movie.  If they had only consulted a Dentist like Michael or myself, they would never had made such a blatant mistake with regards to Ken Miles. His teeth werenít nearly that nice, he was British you know.   ;D

You too, I thought it was something personal because they did not contact me for my car either.  On another note , I just saved a ton of money on my insurance, by switching to reverse and leaving the scene...

I think that there is some intended humor being portrayed? I'm not sure that this is the right audience for that?  :o

Beg to differ on this, lots of interest is stirring on this film. Especially from the younger crowds.

Finally got to see the movie tonight. Wow! I loved it!

Truly, if you go looking for an entertaining movie versus a documentary, youíll love it, IMO. Itís most certainly entertaining in a great way.

Thanks!
Nothing beats a classic!

as my good friends Buc Nasty, Silky Johnson and Beautiful say, well, well...I told you so !

if you are looking for historical accuracy watch the history channel,  if you are looking for a movie to take your mind away from your daily issues, this is one that will entertain you for close to three hours and you won't feel it.... go out and enjoy this flick !

And, spoiler alert:  it was even BETTER the second time around the very next day. ☺️

This screening was held on the University of Texas - Austin campus.  The young folks REALLY seemed to love it!
