    Just ordered this off the net, anyone seen this, if so any good? Without telling me every little thing that happens:biggrin: as I'm not actually that familiar with the entire story!

    It's a good watch. The book is better apparently. My wife enjoyed the film and she understands little about cycling.

    I read the book during my C2C a few weeks back & then watched the film last week. Both good & enjoyable, but as mentioned the book is best ;) I'm sure you'll enjoy

    well worth watching, the book is more detailed but they're both worth having

    I watched the film recently too - it's good, but "Disneyed" a bit compared to the book, apparently. Well worth a watch.

    Liked the book, thought the film was a bit of a let down though.

    My copy of the DVD should be doing the rounds somewhere.

    I thought the film, although decent, cut out all the interesting bits of the story.

    And as if by magic it appears...

    I lent it to my Boss and he's just returned it (I'd forgotten about it!! :rolleyes:) this morning.

    I'll start another thread to see who wants it next.
