New Car BOMB!
22 November 1998 | by ThantorSee all my reviews

Ok, well I rented this movie while I was bed ridden hopped up on pain killers, and let me say, It didn't help the film any.

The film is about a man who buys a car as he is going through a midlife crisis, he loves the car more than anything around him, one day his wife decides to borrow the car. Since I don't want to spoil (not that there was anything to spoil) I shall let your imagination figure out the "Zany" (and I use that word lightly) antics that follow.

I had to fight to stay awake through this snore a minute sleeper of a film, and I would like to say that if you are venturing to the movie store and are thinking about being adventurous, please don't, it's a waste of the film it was printed on.

Then again I could be wrong...
