If you like cars and a good cracker of a film, look no further. This is the tale of 3 kids who get caught up in with a gang of thieves when a million pounds in Diamonds is hidden in their car...and what a car, a red MG TC sports car. The settings are great, rural England during a 24 hour rally and seedy London for the thrilling conclusion. The film is literally full of fantastic I said, a MG TC, but keep your eyes peeled for a stunning Jaguar E-type, Ford Zodiac, Morris Minors, MGB's, Minis and even a Bond Bug! Great film to watch for the whole family, great entertainment as it should be with everything, thrills, spills, comedy and a great feel good factor.
