Born to Ride (2011)

How bad is it? I don't even want to write the review. It's bad.
Should you see it? No way.

The DVD box cover art suggests that this will feature a sexy girl, have lots of action and... well, let's just say it's a flat-out lie. Theresa Russell plays the mother of Casper Van Dien, though they're close in age in real life and Van Dien's supposed to be a gritty biker because he grew a short beard for the part. The film's supposed to be about bikers who get involved in the blackmail of a senator and then get chased by criminals; it's about 10 minutes of bike repair and 30 of aimless travel that makes you wish you were watching "Easy Rider" for the umpteenth time again. There's a chase with no payoff and the story's so thin and meandering that I'm not really sure it exists. James Fargo, Patrick Muldoon and Wm. Forsythe have supporting roles, but are given little to work with.
