About the Movie
Augie. He lived life in the fast lane. He was in impeccable shape. He was tough, bullheaded, and devilishly handsome. Augie Nieto was the first person to popularize the LifeCycle in gyms across the country. At the age of 47, Augie and his wife Lynne – his high school sweetheart – seemed to have it all. But then their lives were turned upside down. Augie was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, in 2005.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Keach should have trusted the power of Augie and Lynn's story, rather than adding ... unnecessary, ineffective flourishes.
Fresh: Inspiring and moving.
i'm very inspired after watching and it makes me want to dedicate time to help this cause.
This movie should be titled “ALS: A Love Story,” because it’s such a sweet story about Augie and his wife Lynne’s love for each other. It’s amazing to see how such a horrible disease can bring two people closer together and make them so determined to fight it. And I never expected to laugh so hard at the jokes all throughout the movie. Definitely recommended!
This is an incredible love story and brings much needed awareness to ALS!
