BEST MOVIE EVER!
I cried through the whole thing. It really touched me in my special place. I'm waking up today a new woman....uh..man. This story helped me to understand my story which is part of a bigger story in the story of life. Everything is a story in which our story unfolds. It's all about story.
AAAAAAHHHHG! IF YOU SAY "STORY" ONE MORE TIME!
Sadly, I highly suspected this was going to be a bait & switch
, but was hoping for the best. I read John Eldridge's "Wild At Heart
" book many years ago, and it's very good. His message is a Christian-based message. And as we Christians tend to do, we want everyone to know that Jesus is the answer. The bait & switch is unfortunately a classic Christian evangelist trick! Hey, you poor people need some food? Here is some food....but first sit through this 20 minute sermon.
OK, so this is definitely based on stereotypes, but all 3 of those sons, and especially 2 of them, had speech patterns and carried themselves in ways that registered "gay" on my gaydar. (Nothing wrong with that. I'm a huge fan.) Those "wives" and the fiance at the end might have been actors. OK, probably not. Now I'm just being mean, which is not very Christian of me--nor is it part of my story... oops. I said "story" again.
If you really want some laughs, go read the angry comments in the official movie trailer YouTube page
since the movie showed! Here is one from a wife who watched the movie with her rider husband:
As a female who went to see this with my husband (a really good rider, unlike these movie fellas) I was not expecting a chick flick. What the hell? I've never seen such drama queens in my life. "Tell me a story where you enjoyed the ending." "Well, the musical Les Miserables..."
The film was seriously lacking footage of actual riding and camping along the way. The footage they did have was shot well with drones. They should have had 80% more riding and at least 80% less touchy-feely talking. About 45 minutes in I wanted to shout out "SHUT UP AND RIDE!"
There are ride reports with photos and videos on Advrider.com that make for a far better adventure "story" than this movie.
