About as enjoyable as a car crash
13 February 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Uneven drama about a racecar driver who's life spins out of control when his second in his racecar (when they had them in those dem days) dies, after a crash. You see, his partner's son was all hyped about going to military school, and after his partner dies, he adopts the kid ("Wanna stay with me?") and gives the kid his wish. But, because of the accident, he's slightly spooked about getting into a car again, and soon, because he needs to scrape by enough money for the kid's education, is forced to driving cars for a living.

This is sort of confusing to follow (mainly because the print I saw is severely banged up), filled with annoying characters (That Italian couple got on me nerves!) and a sappy cloying child actor. Ugh.
