Storyline

London, 2000:- Terminally ill Albert summons old war buddies Frank and Harry to his hospital bed with a bizarre request. When he dies, he wants them to snatch his corpse from the hospital morgue and drive it, in Harry's taxi, to Germany, where they all met, for burial. Thanks to Frank's ingenuity they get the body past Customs but almost lose it in France, recovering it thanks to Vicki, a German hitch-hiker that they pick up. Their good deed is in part atonement for allowing a German girl that they knew fifty-five years earlier to be killed by Russian soldiers, as they explain to Vicki. They dug her grave too and now bury Albert in close proximity to it. Vicki departs but the two old friends find her presence has been positive for them. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[last words: Harry and Frank have just told each other that they are terminally ill, but they plan to make a final journey - to Vienna for Frank and to Venice for Harry - in Harry's taxi]
Frank: D'you think she'll make it?
Harry: What, the old cab? Yes - she's only got 270,000 on the clock. That's hardly run in - a bit like us, really.
[they chuckle]

Very Enjoyable!
13 December 2009 | by aleclambertonSee all my reviews

This was just shown on ABC in Australia, and it was an unexpected pleasure.

David Warner and David Jason mesh well as two tired, old men, trying to fulfill a deceased friend's dying wish. On the way they meet a lovely, if mysterious, girl called Vicki, and they have adventures as they journey across Europe at their friend's behest.

Warner and Jason mesh well, both at their best, Warner as a complete curmudgeon, Jason as slightly bewildered. Both still at the top of their game and pulling off some very good comedy timing.

It's that comedy that makes the movie, overlaying the sombre tone of two men coping with losing a good friend.

I certainly recommend giving it a shot, you may be surprised. 7/10
