Tour de Pharmacy preview

Posted on

The HBO special by Andy Samberg and Murray Miller is a cycling classic.  Boasting an all star-studded cast taking a swing at cycling’s doping past.

The Tour de Pharmacy is a sports comedy which doesn’t hold back.  Right from the outset you see Orlando Bloom.  Clad in Lycra and sporting some pretty impressive 80’s facial hair hurtling down a mountain.  No one realises that he has died from a drug-induced heart attack whilst his penis dangles all over the place until he flies off a cliff.

The film follows a fictitious 1982 Tour de France which claimed to be one of the most outrageous in the tours history.  Early on a mass pile-up of riders led to a massive punch on.  In the aftermath of the fight a doping needle is discovered in a water bottle, which leads to an investigation into who in the Peleton is doping.  165 riders were subsequently disqualified for doping.

The Tour de Pharmacy follows the exploits of the five remaining riders on their quest to ride one of the world’s most famous races.  The Tour de France.

This is a film which never takes itself too seriously, and takes on the taboo subject of doping in professional cycling and turns it into a good hearted fun comedy.

This film has an all-star cast of celebrity actors, sports stars, directors and a number of celebrities that I’m sure you’d recognize.

If you’re a passionate cyclist would you enjoy watching a film which takes the mickey out of the world of cycling?  Guess there’s only one way that you can find out…………..
