It's a movie about "or-pans" and an indictment against Big T-shirt. Oh, and it's about being "Friends for Eternity" - just like us, guys :)

It's a movie about a bunch of mature students who realize that even though they're in their 30s(at least) it's never too late to go to college, start a band or learn new things.

I've spent quite a bit of time at UCF in my day and I love how dingy and gross it looks in this movie. It's really not that bad. And, Sorry. Spoiler Alert. 95% of "Miami" Connection takes place in Orlando.

I just realized the C is for "central" right? Miami is clearly southern not central.

This is what I mean when a movie needs to be made with sincerity. In terms of quality, it would be so easy to lump this together with Ninja Terminator or Hard Ticket, but because it is made with innocence instead of cynicism, it transcends from being merely a crappy movie and becomes something more.

Just FYI I think this might be region blocked or something because I just get "The video is not available"

OK, so according to the ever-reliable Wikipedia, "Miami Connection" was screened at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL?
Can this be true? Because if so, my mind is blown and whoever pulled that off deserves a feckin medal
Your mission is to take the uranium to Atlantis, use this weapon to destroy the Nazi monsters, and for the love of God, damn well KILL HITLER!

For anyone with Amazon Prime, Miami Connection is on two of the add-on channels: Con TV and Cinefest. There's nothing else really on there, but if you want to save yourself some money, you can sign up for a 7 day free preview and just cancel it before the week is up.

Coming out of hiding to say "WOO HOO" to Miami Connection. If you want to see it and not buy it I think it's up on PopcornFlix, which is available on Roku and Playstation 3 (and I think 4 and I think at least XBOX360. I haven't had any time to play games so I have older consoles that are operating as media streamers)

How many times can you listen to the same song before you have to admit you have a problem? I've just listened to Lionel Ritchie's "You Are" three times in a row. That's got to be pretty close, right?
