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

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

Scriptwriter Steve Tesich returns to bicycle racing, but he's forced to throw in a subplot about an incurable movie disease to make the thing work.

The performances aren't bad, but they aren't good enough to give the film the heft it doesn't otherwise have.

A pleasant, straight-down-the-road, cliché-ridden ride.

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