Worth watching if you like old cars and humor
27 July 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a classic non classic. It has a simple plot of Hollywood's "B" movies of the time and is predictable in its outcome from the go. Never the less it is fun to watch, with the old cars and bad stunts and its standard (this type of movie) plot. The acting is almost laughable in some places, but this is what makes this movie so much fun to watch. It truly reminds me of the hundreds of movies i went to as a kid, prior to the arrival of television.
