From the winning team of Roger Corman and Charles Griffith, with Bill Paxton as set designer... we have a fun little film about a sheriff's son who has a race car and outruns every cop who tries to stop him. Throw in a girl named Christopher and you have a movie!
Ron Howard stars, with family Clint and Rance along for the ride. Allegedly, Howard only agreed to do this film after being given the chance to direct "Grand Theft Auto", catapulting his Oscar-winning career. Well played, Opie and Corman!
The film as a whole is fun if you like seeing kids outrun cops, but the Chow Fongs car chase scene is the best. How could the building be so fragile and poorly constructed? How can a car flip so easily? It is pure genius!
