When Eddie and Rick Diesel are practicing on guitars to a taped track, you see both characters smoking cigarettes. Rick Diesel's cigarette is obviously lit and there is smoke coming out of it while he is playing. Towards the end of the scene, another close up of Rick shows the cigarette not lit at all. When the camera pans back onto him a moment later, his cigarette is lit again. See more »
[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 ...

Having recently aquired a copy and getting to see it again, my original opinion still stands...Eddie and the Cruisers 2 is a great sequel! It has drama, a little mystery, alot of great music and wonderful acting from Michael Pare! He does a great job lip singing to John Cafferty. If you didn't read the credits you would actually think Michael Pare was singing! The only thing I didn't like about this movie was in a flashback, it showed Eddie talking to Sal instead of Frankie. But it was still a great movie. I loved the way Joe/Eddie wrestled with his emotions in choosing what to do about his music and life. Very moving! So, if you want to see a relaxing, feel-good movie, this is the one to watch. Even better if you can watch both the original and Eddie Lives in the same weekend!
