Hmmmm....
15 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like this movie although I am not sure why. I saw it more than 20 years ago on cable and thanks to OnDemand, I had the chance to see it again. No real plot to keep up with, but lots of crazy car chases and a script loaded with banter between Darren McGavin (who does way to many scenes in his underwear) and the young lady who played Violet in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory." I always wondered why McGavin wasn't a bigger star and why he was relegated to B-movie material like this. He manages to save the film with his comic timing. Likewise, the young lady, whose name escapes me, is pretty funny too. As many of the posters have indicated, this is a fairly uncomfortable movie. After all, the teen-age lead wants to bed the significantly older (at least 50!) McGavin!??! Very weird! There's little chance this movie would get released today with such a premise. In any event, "Zero to Sixty" is fast-paced enough to be interesting and entertaining. Watching it will definitely bring back memories of those numerous Saturday afternoon matinées featuring mindless PG B-flicks loaded with profane scripts and plenty of car wrecks. Enjoy.
