Easy Rider

In my quest to view movies that I should have seen but never have, I finally got around to renting "Easy Rider."

Verdict: Extremely Overrated. Watching people ride motorcycles and smoke pot is not entertainment. And you can't throw in some tragic ending in the last two minutes to save an otherwise boring movie.

Craziest Find: Tony Basil (yep, the Tony "Yeah, Mickey you're so fine" Basil shows up in the last fifteen minutes as a hooker.)

Noteworthy: Seeing a very young Jack Nicholson

Noteworthy #2: Seeing a young Dennis Hopper who looks old even when he is young.

Best Search and Seizure observation: Two guys riding motorcycles can get arrested in the Deep South and the cops never find the pot and LSD they have in their possession.
