    Well, it's got the guy from The Daily Show, and it seems to have a good amount of Danny McAskill shit in it. Could it be any worse than 90% of the shit in theaters today?

    I truly appreciate the hipster irony here. Most hipster defuses ride fix gears because they're not mainstream and most people don't know or understand what a "fixie" is. Now that the fixie craze has gone hollywood does that mean hipsters will now find a more obscure from of bicycle riding?

    What started out as this:

    Too many helmets, and no tattoos? Come on, the guys that wrote this must have at least seen a bike messenger before? Where are the spoke cards? Maybe the NY kids are different. Don't get me wrong, I'll still watch it when it comes out on netflicks.

    Yeah, the NYC messenger scene has never heard of tatoos or ironic 'staches or old-guy hats. Yeah, that's it.

    The kid from 3rd Rock has been making moves lately.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Nothing will top his performance in Manic with Zooey when she was like 21, to make a comment having nothing to do with Fixies, hipsters, or tattoos.

    I'll agree with jm2e; Danny MacAskill moves makes a big screen crap script watchable, more than most.

    Hmm, haven't seen it. They were pretty good in 500 Days of Summer, though I kinda thought she was the weak link. The whole super free spirit bit is getting kind of tired.

    Quicksilver is a classic, but it admittedly didn't have MacAskill.

    pffft. i think we're all familiar w/ Quicksilver, but Kevin Bacon's hair disqualifies this as a fixie movie.

    Thanks for the laugh, at first I though it was a spoof, realizing it is an actual movie trailer was the trigger.

    ^^^^NICE! Gordon-Levitt dumping into the pool on the banana-seat makes me want to see this. At least his acting will contribute to Premium Rush.
    bagtagley - Yeah, Zooey's pixieness is very played-out. She is hereby relegated to network TV.
