I thought the movie would be a bit self-serving of Bruce but I couldn't have been more wrong. This movie was lighthearted, funny and warm with an introduction to Bruce Loyalty 101. The producers of this movie must have worked very hard in accumulating the massive number of responses to the Bruce questionnaire put to the Bruce fans. I loved the intertwining of the fan's stories with actual film/video of their stories. And of course, the ending was really cool as these truly loyal and loving fans come to meet their favorite musician.
I would highly recommend this movie to any Bruce fan, hard-core or marginal. My wife and I sat in a theater with other Bruce fans and sang along with the songs and clapped and gave a standing ovation at the end.

This is a very good documentary for hard core Springsteen fans. It is funny at times, and touching at others. If you are not a hard core fan, you will dislike it, but otherwise, I would suggest you watching it. It is short, though.

Saw "Springsteen and I" last night. Defies Definition. Never went to a movie where the entire audience clapped, wept, laughed, cheered and sighed. Truly a community. Truly GOD is to be praised above all else for creating this man as one of his countless blessings to bestow upon us. Bruce, may you sing with the angels forever when it is your time. Get the DVD when it comes out. A MUST!

Definitely not what I expected but lots of fun just the same. If you are there for music clips only, you will be disappointed until very late in the show. If you are there to get to know the band or its history, don't bother at all. But if you are there because you are a Springsteen fan who can relate to other Springsteen fans - and you want to see a mini concert at the end with cool "feel like you're there" audio effects - it is EXACTLY what you want.

A Fabulous movie. I went in on a day that I thought my world was coming to an end. My husband who had beat cancer once was told it was back. He was looking to me for strength that I just didn't feel I had. But, typical for a Bruce event, I came out rejuvenated. Ready to fight and conquer this thing. I don't know how many times Bruce and his music has pulled me back from the brink, but through this movie, he did it again! So good to see other people that have the same experience and admiration for this man. It is a well done, fun and uplifting movie that even someone that has not had the chance to attend the "church of Bruce Springsteen" can enjoy.
