"Here we have a movie with an honest-to-Goddess STORY moving it along. No explosions, no gunfire, no special effects, no car chases. Just a damned good movie about two women who hit the road on their motorcycles, and find their souls while surfing the asphalt.Melissa Behr and Sherrie Rose [motorcycle enthusiasts in real life] teamed up to write, produce, direct, AND star in ME AND WILL. It's the story of two women, Will and Jane--- burned out from the LA club-and-drug scene---who meet in rehab. They decide to set off on a Holy Mission: To find the chopper ridden by Peter Fonda in EASY RIDER. So they bust out of rehab and point their Harleys toward Montana, where Will is certain the Captain America bike has been stored lo these many years.Will and Jane struggle with personal demons as they ride. Besides the temptation to use drugs, there are lingering "family of origin" problems which haunt them. Their friendship grows as they open up to each other, help each other, and encounter a variety of unusual---and sometimes frightening---people on the road. Speaking of the road, get ready for some spectacular scenery. And the road sequences are set to some great tunes; anyone who sees these scenes and isn't tempted to jump on a Harley and head out on that highway probably has their spirit up on blocks. In the end, things work out as they often do in real life: A spirit-lifting victory, albeit a victory intermingled with a poignant loss. Be sure to watch the credits all the way through, because there's a surprise second ending well worth waiting for...If this film doesn't go down in history as the female EASY RIDER I'll be very surprised. And disappointed."

"I noticed that the site for selling this video has left my name out as a co-star. Please ad my Name starring Sherrie Rose and Melissa Behr! Thank you very much. This is a story of two women, we worked three hard years, a complete labor of love. I hope everyone enjoys it."

"My wife and I, both avid riders, enjoyed this movie very much. We have seen it twice. I normally do not purchase movies, and of the very few I would consider, this will be one, (as soon as the price drops)! You get something different out of it each time. The women who starred in it do a wonderful, convincing job of the characters they portray. At times, it seems almost like a documentary in its reality. No Hollywood BS or hype in this film! What an independent should be! Anyway, my wife and I hope we will be seeing more from Melissa and Sherrie in the very near future. These two women are what independent film makers are all about."

"Me & Will is an excellent, vastly underrated movie, but this "new" 2008 version from Peace Arch Entertainment is a completely pointless dvd rerelease. It has nothing new added to it ; in fact, it has even fewer extra features than the 1999 release did. The only thing noticeably different is the newly revamped cover artwork image and title graphics (which now misleadingly make co-star Patrick Dempsey out to look like the star of the movie) and a retweaked picture which is now presented in a matted widescreen format. The image does look a little better but the sound is still mediocre and it's not enough to save this dvd. Like I say, I like the movie alot but it deserves better dvd treatment than it received here. Overall, I'm very dissappointed with this rerelease and will not be buying anything from Peace Arch again.
Movie: A+ DVD: F"

"A great picture from a couple of women who seemed to have poured their hearts out. This is a film for anyone who has taken a road trip to exorcise some personal demons. Great scenery, fun secondary characters, and a nice slant on some modern social problems. watch to the end of the credits for some vengence we have been waiting 30 years to see."
