Larry Rayder is an aspiring NASCAR driver, Deke Sommers is mechanic. As they feel they collectively are the best, the only thing that is holding them back is money to build the best vehicle possible. As such, they decide to rob a supermarket's office of the money in its safe to pursue their dream. On the most part, their robbery is successful, although their plan breaks down in its end phase, which doesn't allow them as much getaway time as they wanted. Another problem they face is an unexpected third person in their getaway, Larry's one night stand Mary Coombs, who doesn't like the fact that Larry ran off on her, although she eventually also says that she doesn't want any of the money. With a police scanner and two-way radio in their souped up Dodge Charger, they try to outrun the police, who have an identification of their vehicle, and a general description of the three. The police pursuit is led by the tenacious Sheriff Everett Franklin, who knows he and his team can catch them, ... Written by
A clip of the chase scene in which Mary says, "I think someone's knocking on the door," is played in the 1997 Quentin Tarantino film in which Robert De Niro and Bridget Fonda are watching. Bridget Fonda is the daughter of Dirty Mary Crazy Larry star Peter Fonda. See more »
The radio used to listen to the cops, is in fact, a Realistic CB radio. This type of radio cannot pick up police calls and also is in Single Sideband Mode, LSB, which would make hearing VHF/UHF police band impossible, even if it could. See more »

There isn't a lot of plot to this movie.Larry & Deke rob a grocery store to further their racing careers.Along the way Mary a ditzy blonde (Susan George in a great performance)deals herself in. The police give chase led by Vic Morrow as a foul mouthed unconventional, pain in the arse officer.
Larry, Mary & Deke are morons.Their dialogue is a hoot as they probably have one brain between the three of them. There are the usual squabbles and expositions along the way.You can't help but like them even if they are cretinous.you want them to get away and speed off into the sunset.
This is a great chase film with the required car crashes to take your mind off of the plot holes and idiotic dialogue.Great twist ending!A very guilty pleasure!
