WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
As famed motorcycle builder Jesse James prepares to go for a carefree Mexican trek with his rocker buddy Kid Rock, Were given an insight into his rise to fame, his marriage to porn star Janine Lindemulder and his life in general.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Its not easy for someone who considers himself an artist to reach fame and fortune while sticking to his creative ideals but as demonstrated by the tens of thousands who proudly don West Coast Choppers accoutrement, Jesse James has managed to accomplish all of that while transcending the once obscure choppers world and acting as the main catalyst to its almost poker-like explosion. Theres very little argument one could give to contradict James stature as the chopper king. His creativity is unmatched and his fabrication talents leave most other builders in the lurch and through it all, hes managed to stay true to himself. The only unfortunate part, as evidenced in MOTORCYCLE MANIA 3, is that what he seems to be is actually a whining, complaining crybaby.

I was hoping to see much more of the bike fabrication process and to catch a glimpse into what make James such a creative force. Instead, I got a soap opera about a guy who complains that his upbringing was rough, who complains about how he hates everyone and who whines about the rapid disintegration of his marriage. Straight up dude, when you marry a chick who sucks on assholes for a living, there wont be much sympathy coming from my side. I held out for things to get in gear once he hit the road with Kid Rock. They didnt. Next to James, Kid Rock actually doesnt seem that abrasive but the end result was a pair of really rich dudes riding around in Mexico and signing autographs while spewing out wise lines such as the motors RPMs were in line with the beat of my heart. The bikes were cool at least but I could have made that assessment based on ninety seconds of footage. I didnt need ninety minutes. This was definitely not worth the while.

THE EXTRAS
Not even some exhaust fumes on this disc...
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
Jesse's not my type of dude but he does build the coolest bikes around and I'd give my right arm for one of them. That being said, this feature has very little to do with bikes. Add to that the fact that it plays on The Discovery Channel every other day and there's no real motivation left to grab this. If you're interested in finding out what's behind the most brilliant chopper-building mind out there, this is unfortunately not the place but if you get your kicks by hearing someone and his porn chick discuss their marriage, then this is the place to be!
