Saw the July 22nd showing in Rochester NY. Being a fan, I could relate to what the other fans in the movie were expressing. Nice mix of ages and geopgraphies included. The clips of Bruce in concert were wonderful. I especially enjoyed the added footage after the credits.

I attended a showing of Springsteen and i basically, an ode to Bruce told through fan-submitted videos, concert-footage and interviews. The fan stories of first concerts, chance meetings and tales of the way Bruces music has affected their lives.
Funny, sweet, touching...those are my 3 words. I feel compelled to tell you all not to leave when the credits begin to roll or you'll miss the last 40 minutes. Even the casual Springsteen fan needs to see this.

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.

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!
