Drag MovieClip and more

I have a MC on the timeline that I want to drag like part of the way, but when I release the mouse I want it to continue to go in the direction I was dragging it. It should be able to be draggable left or right. Either drag all the way left or right, or drag in either direction part of the way and when user releases the mouse it continues to go in that direction.

Please help.

This is what I have so far.

[COLOR=#000087]on[/COLOR] (press) {
[COLOR=#000087]startDrag[/COLOR] ([COLOR=#000087]this[/COLOR], [COLOR=#000087]true[/COLOR]);
[COLOR=#000087]on[/COLOR] (release) {
[COLOR=#000087]stopDrag[/COLOR] ();

Thanks to anyone who can help

In other words you want to give it inertia?? If so take a look at this: http://www.kirupa.com/developer/actionscript/spring.htm

Something like that except in that example it,s an elastic effect. I want to drag it then release and it continues to play the movie clip until it hits the stop(); on command on the end frame.
