As a car racing film, this one has flat tires!
5 April 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Tommy (Billy Campbell) is a mechanic for a hotshot race driver named Mike (Rob Estes). Mike has a lovely, personable girlfriend he is forever neglecting; he is the supreme egotist. Tommy happens to fall in love with her, also, and she, tiring of Mike's habits, returns his affection. These two marry and move far away from Mike, where the bitter split between the men can't touch them. Naturally, they cross paths again. Tommy is offered a great job where Mike is already installed. Will the two be able to forget the past and focus on the important race season ahead?

This is a rather banal entry into the film repertoire of automobile racing flicks. The stars are attractive but they are saddled with an uninspired script. Then, too, a bit of risqué sexual scenes pop up now and then. The ending is what one would wish for, but, it takes awhile to get there. Racing scenes are just routine, at best. Some film watchers across the globe, like myself, have a mania for locating obscure films. If you are on of those, you might take a chance on this movie. If not, skip it in favor of Grand Prix or even Days of Thunder. You will not find this film even remotely worthwhile.
