What a fantastic documentary about Bruce Springsteen and his connection with his fans! You will laugh, you will cry, you will sing, you will dance. It brought back many memories of all of the concerts I attended with my family and friends. An absolute must see for Bruce fans. For non-Bruce fans, it is an interesting film to see. I will purchase the DVD to add it to my Bruce collection. FANTASTIC!!!

I saw this movie last night and loved it. This is a winner for Bruce fans. I took a friend of mine who likes Bruce but is not a hard core fan like I am and she loved it. Some of the videos were hilarious and many were heartwarming. I loved The King. 'Nuff said. Everyone in the audience laughed hysterically and booed when John suggested that Bruce shorten his concerts. He was especially funny in the Epilogue. The concert clips were wonderful. Loved the Born in the USA montage of clips showing Bruce as he has aged (he just gets better and better) through the years. Some idiots left during the credits and totally missed the concert footage from the Wrecking Ball Tour and the epilogue. I hope it is released on DVD. I will definitely purchase it and recommend it to all my friends who were unable to catch a showing. To those who will purchase it on DVD-don't turn it off when the credits start rolling. There is concert footage and an Epilogue.

To the casual music fan, "Springsteen & I", at first glance, may seem like an on screen opportunity for Bruce Springsteen diehards to voice their love for all things, "The Boss". At times, that is exactly what the film is. Fans were asked to share their own videos & provide comments, stating what Springsteen's music means to them. Occasionaly, the film borders on sappy, as one woman relates her sexual awakening, watching Bruce's "perfect body", dance to, "jungleland". One man even breaks down in tears, as he describes the elements of Springsteen's songs that draw him in.
These examples aside, "Springsteen & I", provides a much bigger message: The effect music has on people's lives. The majority of tales told here are form everyday people from small towns, who find comfort, joy & strength from the message in Bruce's songs. Many of the stories are simply uplifting.
Music fans in general appreciate the film. The Boss' fans will love it.

Great movie foe the avid Springsteen fan. I was just jealous that I wasn't in it!!! Added bonus was that Sir Paul showed up at the end. Can't wait for the sequel.
