Unfortunately, overblown production just pumps hot air in too many directions and comes up limp.

Classic '80s sports movie. Surprising twist, and thrilling bike scenes.

There are certainly worse ways to spend 100 minutes - particularly if you're a bicycling enthusiast.

American Flyers is shaky at the core, because it tries to tap-dance around its own central issues.

Thankfully, Costner and Grant are able to overcome the bumpy screenplay and ride American Flyers to a satisfying, if predictable, conclusion.
