Product Details

Product Description


Perhaps best known for its faux Springsteen soundtrack, the 1983 Eddie and the Cruisers is a rock lover's fantasy run wild. The story finds a reporter (Ellen Barkin) tracking down rumors of an unreleased album by a band whose charismatic leader (Michael Paré) allegedly died years before. As she approaches surviving members--who have since gone on to other things--she gets different points of view on Eddie's life and artistic drive, and the mystery about that album deepens. The trouble with the film is simple: it's impossible to accept. Michael Paré is far from suitable to play a Jersey shore rocker with thematic pretensions toward Rimbaud that go back to the '60s, and the soundtrack by John Cafferty sounds like a hack's rendition of E Street Band magic. An all-around embarrassment. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars One big flashback Dec 23 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
News person Maggie Foley (Ellen Barkin) suspects that a singer Eddie Wilson (Michael Paré) after being missing for 19 years. In her search for Eddie she interviews the other members of his band. Each member in turn visualizes what it was like when Eddie was alive. We go along for the ride in a series of flashbacks.

Not part of the original music but fun to hear again is "Runaway" by Del Shannon.

The story is fun to watch as it unfolds. It will only work for you if you like the particular music as that is just as much a character of the movie as the people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eddie and the Cruisers - Eddie Lives July 9 2004
By A Customer
I must agree with everyone else that this movie was fantastic! I first bought Eddie and the Cruisers - Eddie lives on VHS....just loved the story line and the music was unbelievable!!! I had never heard of Eddie and the Cruisers the first movie until it came out on DVD and I ran out and bought a copy of it. Loved all of it as well as the music.......just one question.......WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO RELEASE EDDIE AND THE CRUISERS - EDDIE LIVES ON DVD???????????? VHS's are soon going to be out of the picture and my poor Eddie and the Cruisers - Eddie Lives on VHS is becoming so worn from being played, I won't beable to play it much longer so please............PUT IT ON DVD - so all the fans can have both copies........PLEASE!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eddie Rocks Nov. 22 2004
For those who love classic rock, this movie is a must see. Eddie Wilson personifies what a rock n' roll musician should be. It's all about the music. Like everyone else who loves this movie, I hope that the second movie, Eddie Lives, will be released on DVD soon. This is also a great movie for those who love rock music.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Really Great Movie! June 22 2004
I'm guessing that this was a B-Movie which grew into a cult film, and I'm glad that it did!
This movie really manages to pull you into a fantasy- where Eddie Wilson was 15 years ahead of his time...and nobody can find the missing tapes, of what WOULD have been his next album- had he lived.
A news woman interviews the remaining members of Eddie's old band, to try and shine some light on the mis-understood stories, the blurred memories and complex ideas.
To enjoy this film, you have to ignore the REAL history of rock n'roll and pretend that THIS is how it went. It was well paced, the acting was good and the music fits!
As for DVD extras...you don't get very much, but that doesn't ruin this classic movie, now does it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Disagree with Amazon Review! May 28 2004
By A Customer
This film is a fantasy!! Pretend! And.. wonderful! Have seen it countless times and it always manages to evoke so many positive feelings, it's impossible to list. The "Editor's Review" says the story is impossible to accept- I disagree!! It's fun and I love it..again and again! No problem here!
Also have to put in my vote to those who are holding up the release of Eddie and the Cruiser's 2...what's in the way of this release? Work it out!!
