    I just saw "Tucker" for the first time on DVD. This is a great, under-rated film - I found it both enjoyable and educational. Before I saw the film I wasn't aware of the large impact that Preston Tucker had on the auto industry, but now I am. It's interesting that, at the time the movie took place (post WW II), Tucker cars were a big deal, but now Tucker and his cars are almost unheard of.
    Not only was the story great, but the cinematography, acting, and sets were also fantastic. I would recommend this film to anyone who has even a passing interest in the history of the automobile industry.

    I like this film a lot. Jeff Bridges and Martin Landau are great and the film is very well made. I love the cinematography and art direction. I think Lucas owns a Tucker car too.

    I've been wanting to see Tucker. Lucas and Coppola make a good team and it seems to have a nostalgic charm similar to American Graffiti.

    I've always wanted to see Tucker I'll have to look and see if my local Blockbuster has it.
