This is listed as my favorite movie. 2 reasons, a pretty good story, and some of the best driving and stunts you'll ever see, done in Mini Coopers. The story is a basic "caper plot" with some decent performances from some great talent. but the real stars are the Mini Coopers. Many people do not realize that these cars were not heavily modified, they only had a skid plate/ski added to protect the sump. All the stunts were real (outstanding driving from Reme Julliene's stunt team) and even the traffic jam was real. It's also a fun period piece, complete with score by Quincy Jones. See it, if for no other reason than to find out how the humble Mini won the Monte Carlo 3 times, and was voted European Car of The Century.
