Totally disappointing
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a new fan and bought my ticket the day the movie came out, although I tried desperately to enjoy this movie and take something away from it that made the $3.00 and time spent worth it there was simply nothing. I recall complaining during the movie that I didn't pay three bucks to watch Jim Dunn shave and eat baloney sandwiches but unfortunately the bulk of the movie was was spent listening to the incessant droning of family small talk. I thought the movie would center around the heat of competition with many passes down the track in the unusual rear engined Baracudda but to my utter dismay it was ten seconds of action followed by ten minutes of folding laundry together and Mike presenting a red spotlight lamp wired down to a block of wood to chide dad about foul start during the previous race, a waste of celluloid indeed!
