Customer Review

on January 7, 2005
This is my favorite movie. It is one of the ultimate male-defining movies of all time. It has action, humor, tragedy, and drama. It rings true (the writer had actually served time on a chain gang). When, at the age of 12, I first saw this movie [particularly the fight in the yard scene], I realized that life isn't always an "A" or an "F". Often a person rates at least a "C" if not an "A" just for trying. In other words, one who puts forth real effort is deserving of respect whether or not they come out "on top" or "first place". The 50 egg challenge is great. The repeated "fugitive" pursuit scenes are well-done. The different songs played and sung by Harry Dean Stanton are perfect. The story is magnificent as are the many great lines: "Still shakin' it, Boss!" and "What we got here is a failure to communicate." With such a cast too! Joe Don Baker, Ralph Waite, Wayne Rogers, Strother Martin, Dennis Hopper, and, of course, Paul Newman. This movie inspired me and never fails to do so every time I view it again.
