[listening to a mystery tape with Dave that sounds like Eddie singing]
It's a pretty good imitation of Eddie. Who is it?
When we reacquired the Season in Hell album, we found another totally unrelated tape in the box... a mystery tape. This tape.
And you think this is Eddie?
It can't be. Eddie always played with me. I knew every song he knew. I knew everything...
No, this IS Eddie.
What are you trying to pull here?
There aren't any tricks, Sal. I had the tape ...

I started out watching Eddie before I could walk and It is to this day one of my absolute favorite movies. This movie brings back great memories for me and now that my daughter loves this movie as much as I did I hope it will mean as much to her. This is definitely a classic in the making if you ask me. Some of the greatest things didn't get the proper recognition until many years sometimes hundred of years after the fact.A line from the original "the world needs dreamers" and I couldn't agree more. This movie allows that to happen. Who in their life hasn't hoped and dreamed for something and been knocked down? I think this movie gives people that connection to real life but also hope in seeing "Eddie" actually come back from the lowest point in his life. I would recommend this movie to everyone, male, female, young, old and anywhere in between.
