Product Details


Product Description

'A Rock 'n' Roll road movie like no other!'-Film Threat Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie, Walking Tall) shows off star power in his first leading role as the hard-drinking, motorcycle-riding rock'n'roll manager Phil Kaufman. When legendary singer Gram Parsons dies, Kaufman steals the body to keep his promise to make Joshua Tree Gram's final resting place. Chased by the cops, Gram's father and Gram's psycho ex-girlfriend, Betty (Christina Applegate), Kaufman embarks on a darkly comic adventure deep into the desert. Based on a true story, this reckless road movie exceeds all limits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Relax Jan. 13 2005
By P. Patton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I'm a Grampire as well but folks have to realize that this is a movie - meant for entertainment. If folks are fans of Gram they should be happy that he even made it to the big screen outside short cameos in Gimme Shelter and The Trip. As for complaints that the movie lacked character development of Gram and Phil's relationship, well during the period of time the movie covered, Gram was dead and still is. Of course there were some licenses taken with the facts, but again, it's a movie. While I'm a Gram fan, I also realize that he is not so sacrosanct that there cannot be entertaining value to his legacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its sad a film this great didn't get a big theatrical release June 28 2005
By Daniel P. Scully - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I never write reviews on Amazon, but was shocked that everyone but the spotlight reviewer panned this film. Though I can imagine skepticism would stem from Johnny Knoxville being in a movie were he had to act (since he is most famous for the Jacka** movie and TV Show) Knoxville turned in a great performance. He seemed at ease with the character and was able to subtly convey his lines. His understated approach to the part serves to contrast the absurd situation his character is in and lends realism to the film that would be lacking if Knoxville had tried to ham it up for more laughs. The scene where he tries to rent the hearse and can barely mask his anger at the hearse's drug addled owner's incompetence had me on the floor rolling with laughter. I wasn't familiar with actor Michael Shannon before this film but he does a great job as the owner of the hearse. His cartoonish over the top hippie was the perfect Ying to Knoxville's character's reserved Yang. (a point which Shannon's character cleverly brings up.)

As if great dialogue, suburb acting, and a yellow hearse with flowers painted on the side weren't enough to make you want to see this film immediately if not sooner; the sound track alone makes the movie worth watching, it uses a lot of Parson's songs but also other great songs from the era.

In the end this film goes beyond being a great comedy to become a great film. Having Gram Parson's father as a character added a lot of weight to the last half hour of the film, with Robert Forester conveying all the resignation, sadness, and guilt felt by his character his downtrodden facial expressions. This is a movie I would recommend to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little confusion about a couple of the reviews here! Dec 17 2004
By awholenewview - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Um, this ISN'T a film about Gram Parsons, and doesn't pretend to be. It seems to me that people who like the music of Gram Parsons wanted to see a biopic, and they don't like the fact that this is a comedy about what happened to Gram's body.

In fact, I'm not sure if some of the reviewers have actually seem the film. FYI, the guy with the beard is Phil Kaufman - Gram (seen in a dream sequence) actually doesn't have a beard in 'Grand Theft Parsons'.

If you're a 'Grampire', I suggest you give this movie a miss. If you like great fun road movies, pick up a copy and make your own mind up.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a VERY funny movie Aug. 31 2004
By L. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I saw this movie in London earlier this year and didn't know anything about the Gram Parsons story beforehand - the BBC biopic might go on to offer some straight facts - I don't care, this version delivered the coolest of lines and some very, very funny scenes.

Great performances, great script and the kind of 'feel good' that makes you laugh like you do with your best friends. This is a gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's worth a look Dec 28 2004
By Tapebox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's not great. It's a pretty good movie that's worth a look.

Please note, as another reviews did, that this movie is not about Gram Parsons or his life. It's about Parson's manager Phil Kaufman and his reaction to Parson's death.

'Jackass' creator Johnny Knoxville did pretty good for himself here as Kaufman. Better than I expected him to. He might have a future beyond self-inflicted pain yet.

There's also an interesting bonus feature with the real Phil Kaufman telling the story.
