In this underscripted and not wholly convincing drama, Kevin Bacon plays Jack Casey, an up-and-coming broker who crashes on the stock market one day and cashes in whatever he has left to become a bicycle messenger in San Francisco. Although not exactly a logical alternative, bicycling the hilly streets of S.F. turns out to be dangerous after Casey runs into Gypsy (Rudy Ramos), the street pusher who has the messengers run drugs for him. A series of characters and events drop in and out of the conflict between Gypsy and Casey, including love interest Terri (Jami Gertz) and Casey's friend Hector (Paul Rodriguez). Music dominates throughout the film which includes scenes of breakdancing on bikes.~Eleanor Mannikka
Kevin Bacon plays a hotshot stock broker turned bicycle delivery man when things suddenly turn south on him and he loses it all…. and all of his father's retirement nest egg. The film is quick to lose the attention of my adhd mind. It starts off quick, but develops lag over the duration…
Lots of fast paced action in a big city of traffic, crime, streetsmarts and Wall street!
I would recommend this to a friend

If you are a Kevin Bacon fan this is a pretty descent flick. Not his best work, but definately worth picking up. I was happy to get the movie on Blu-ray. I am a little disappointed that you can't get these at the BB store location.
The movie was good, but could've been better. It reminded me a lot of 1980s TV shows. The title is far more exciting than the movie. It was a movie about people on ordinary bicycles. Nothing exciting happened.
