About the Movie

According to New York magazine, Tucker: The Man And His Dream is "as fast, sleek and streamlined as the car - the Tucker Torpedo, that Preston Tucker built in 1948." And filmmakers Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas celebrate Preston Tucker as the ultimate believer in the American dream. In a dazzling portrayal by Jeff Bridges, Tucker is a dynamic engineer and an enthusiastic showman who envisions the car of the future. Against mighty odds he manages to build a fleet of them - only to have his factory shut down by Detroit's Big Three automobile manufacturers. They took away his car - but nobody could take away his dream.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Coppola has done things this fancily before, but never with so clear and moving a sense of purpose. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The result is a film consistent narratively, confident stylistically and abounce with the quaint quality that animated both the hero and his times, something we used to call pep. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The true story of a great American visionary who was thwarted, if not destroyed, by the established order, Tucker represents the sunniest imaginable telling of an at least partly tragic episode in recent history. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Tucker came up with a classic, but poor Coppola has turned a great American tragedy into a gas-guzzling human comedy. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Dec 11, 2007

Great Movie!

This is a great movie about the struggle of an inventive man trying to make his dreams reality in America. It also shows how the crooked and devious "Big 3" automakers fight to keep progress out of the picture. A dramatic example of what occurs today, large companies create products which are barely enough or poor quality and attack anyone who tries to infuse good old fashioned integrity into what they manufacture. Inspirational, encouraging, and enlightening.

Apple, Please make this movie available for purchase!
