C.C. and Company C.C. Ryder (Joe Namath) is a biker who rescues Ann McCalley (Ann-Margret) from a rape attempt by a gang of malevolent hippies. She makes love with him to show her appreciation, but their romance meets with obstacles when gang-leader Moon (William Smith) seeks revenge for C.C.'s interference. They battle for control over both the gang and Ann in this truly bad biker movie. Namath was chosen because of his hero status as a football player in the 1970 Super-Bowl upset by the New York Jets over the highly favored Baltimore Colts. Brash Broadway Joe predicted a win and made sure it was not an idle boast. One of the producers of this dog was Margret's husband Roger Smith which explains her appearance in this forgettable film. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

OK kids, I'm not rating the dvd but rather the story. I have this on vhs but will one day pick up a more permanent format for this little treasure. I got snuck in to see this puppy when it originally appeared on the big screen; and I was WAY under age to see it. It didn't freak me out, too much I guess, because I always had a passion for choppers. Jeez, even some of my neighbors where...shall I say, "club members". All the other mature stuff went so far over my head I was left far from scarred. There is a scene, at the beginning of the film, where Joe Namath "rumbles" with two of his buddies by Ann-Margret's limousine. I loved the bikes and the action but this particular moment stuck in my mind for quite a few years. I was anxious to see it as an adult to compare my memory with the actual movie. And how did it compare? The makeup effect was hardly convincing but it still left me tingling after watching it again.
As a kid I would have done about anything for CC's zebra-painted, raked-out Harley. Actually I would do about anything now to have it although my riding days are long gone. For nostalgia buffs, or gear-heads, you'll love the bikes! There are mod fashions too since Namath's love interest works for a fashion magazine. The opening of the movie is pure classic, especially for the young, and bad, at heart. Joe's version of roaming a grocery store is something to be seen. And Ann-Margret! She shows a little flesh in this movie!!! Hey, it means something to me now!!! I was blown away because I don't remember much nudity, or any for that matter, from my viewing as a kid. There's a lesson. I don't remember the bare breasts but the violence definitely stuck in the child's head. (Note to censors.)
Again, time has caught up and passed any cutting-edge flavor this movie MAY have had. It's now a time capsule of what people thought was living free or on the envelope. It has become a comic book tale. An example of what those vintage men's adventure magazines probably were full of in the day? Take special interest in the scenery of this movie. Taken as a pictures from an old Viewmaster reel, one can truly appreciate the desert before it was altered by too much of man's meddling. Ann-Margret's house, where our vagabond CC starts thinking about settling down, is just so sweet. You have to excise the 70's décor but I'd take it in a heartbeat. It also is interesting to see what "bad men" looked like back then. These boys would be beaten up, by the local teen neighborhood drug dealer, and left in an alley for dead. But again, that's the fun of this movie and a sad commentary of our daily grind today. You can almost see partying with CC's boys because they aren't as bad as what we've become accustomed too. A special nod to William Smith's brutish, yet unintentionally comical portrayal of Moon, the gang leader.
Here's the deal. You need to find a dvd copy with a good print, and sound, and you'll enjoy this ruckus adventure. Of note, there seems to have been a continuity issue when the film was originally shot. The night chase scene at the end goes from dark, to light, and back again. It's a small price to pay for Broadway Joe and Ann. One last thing. You'll thoroughly have a hoot as Namath clearly hasn't been on too many motorcycles. He wields his steed like he's about to slip out of the saddle on more than one occasion. The turning radius on a chopper isn't an easy thing to maneuver but Joe does it. Firmly with both feet dragging on the ground!!!
