There are only two people in Norway who can make that jump, and you are not one of them.

The film starts with the following dedication:
"Dedicated to Hal Needham (1931-2013)
American director and stunt coordinator who combined movies and fast cars and made it fun." See more »
It's not like an epic movie, but for what it is, it is well made. The young one is watching it for a second time in 12 hours. He is like tied to the screen and you can't talk to him.
Fast cars, lots of noise, pretty girls and cheesy one liners. What more is there to want from a car film? As an adult and not particularly interested in cars, I was still drawn to the film and enjoyed it a lot.
Even my cohabitant who is really not into cars and isn't exactly in the main focus groups, so this is safely one to watch with the whole family.
The ending leaves room for a sequel so who knows if we'll see a second film next year?
