Trivia:
The helicopter that Captain Franklin commandeers is a Bell 206B JetRanger, FAA Registration number N20DB. The aircraft was built in 1973 and owned by Rotorcraft Technologies. This particular helicopter was leased to film and television production companies, and was featured on-camera (with various paint schemes) in "The Rockford Files" (1974), and as the corporate helicopter in The Towering Inferno (1974). In addition, it was also used as a filming platform for aerial shots in several movies, including Midway (1976). It was involved in a fatal crash in 1984, but is currently registered to fly.See more »

A moron movie that ya' gotta love!!, 31 August 1999
Author: evilskip from speeding through California

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!
