Can you say "Top Wheel" ... You will after watching this turkey
I saw this movie when it came out 15 years ago and still rue the $7.50 I spent. Having heard all about the movie for the year before as it was being made I was really excited to see it. But what did I get? Top Gun with wheels instead of wings.
I loved Top Gun and still have it in my collection. It was a classic. Days of Blunder was a classic, too. A classic bomb.
Sure there are some nice car crashes, but that's where the good part ends. And, while we all know movies aren't supposed to be real, this took the "Rubbin's Racing" theory way, way beyond extreme.
I gave this movie a four, and I'm not sure why I put it that high. If you ever think about renting it, do it for a good laugh at a turkey. Otherwise try something else.
