Born to suck
15 May 2006 | by (Valrico, Fl) – See all my reviews

Al Pagura is a young race car driver looking for a big break, and Andrea Lombardo is a hot young Italian engineer trying to sell her new innovative engine design. She is kidnapped by the Beast Master, who wants the engine designs for his own car. Pagura and his team of misfit pit crew dudes go on an adventure of wacky hi-jinx to get the girl and ultimately win the big race. If this review sounds cheesy, it is because this movie is, and not in a good way, no good lines, no unintentionally funny scenes, basically its like the latter episodes of the Dukes of Hazzard, totally yokely and a waste of film. This movie should only be watched after drinking 10 beers, then it may be good, other than that, stay away. Oh and Pagura gets this totally hot chick to fall for him almost immediately, saved her, then bam, doin it. Completely unbelievable, totally predictable, and most importantly only slightly funny, but even thats a stretch. If you are a fan of latter Dukes of Hazzard or have some unholy obsession with the Beast Master this may be for you.
