I saw this movie while studying in Edinburgh in the 80's. Loved it too. A light and fairly fluffy storyline with the prerequisite villain and good guy formula to the fore. However, the "highpoint" for me was the car chase featuring an MGB GT convertible doing some very silly stuff. Great action, and a spectacular end to this chase. Also, one little line from the movie is still quoted by my brother and I all these years later - when Harris goes to make a tricky maneuver in his car, he tells his passenger to put on her safety belt as he's about to do a "Brodie", and then yanks on the handbrake and spins the car in the middle of the road. Fun film, dated now but the CN Tower stunt is scary when you realise that someone actually did the jump, AND got paid handsomely for the privilege.
