When the tour bus passes a group of high school girls jogging, Penny waves to the girls first from the passing bus, which makes the girls wave back. A moment later she extends her middle finger to them which makes the girls vocally react. Unless the bus was passing by them at a crawling speed, it is impossible for the girls to see Penny's waving turning to a middle finger at a bus moving that quickly on the road. See more »

Wonderfuly captured piece of time that breaks the age barrier and pulls all generations in
As I exited the movie theater after viewing Cameron Crows latest adventure, I was struggling with what to say to my date. As I didnt want to just sit there and say nothing, I was forced to due to so many feelings and thoughts about Almost Famous. Luckily, she felt the same way and so for a few moments we just sat there, staring off into the screen, wishing, wanting, and feeling for that movie. It was so nicely done. From the acting, brilliantly handled, to the directing, never camrons problem, down to the sets, costumes, audio, and other wonderfully placed visuals. Not only was the movie well thought out, but it became one of those rare films in which everyone, boy girl, man woman, could feel for at least one person, part, event. I would reccomend anyone I know to see this movie. It was a chance to take yourself away from your own problems and let you watch someone elses moving you all the way through. ****/****
