    watched it a while ago.
    pretty decent.

    They started talking to some crackpots towards the end.

    I just watched it.
    The beginning was good, espically for new drivers.
    Got into to much political BS towards the end though. I was nice to see that someone took the time and spent the money to do a film like that about truckers though.

    Yep, where it went to the family life stopped my interest. The regular ads killed it as well.

    Just finished it. I really enjoyed it, except for the political stuff.

    I bought the dvd a few years ago. It is really good except for the political stuff. I also thought that a couple of the folks they talked to were a little out there. Overall worth the time to watch though.

    I love the example that guy "bear" sets, I think that's his name. I have it on DVD and have watched it numerous times, his wife seems well kept, but he's a treat. Dirty dashboard, awesome to pump fuel with no gloves then leave your truck on the fuel island while you go inside shopping in your dirty clothes probably smelling of diesel, other than him and a few other tools on there it was pretty good.

    I watched it the other day since they decided to postpone the race. It was pretty good, could have done without all the political stuff tho. And that "instructor" at the school didn't seem very good.
