Wow,is the world so starved for chase movies that is mindless junk is sen as a great movie. if you like chase or race movies get "cannonball" or "the gumball rally" instead. this is just one long mug at the camera by burt and friends with the one scene that is in every burt movie where he gets dramitac for a second and tells the reason he is like he is.(it was used to good effect in the longest yard,was ok in smokey and the bandit,and reached it's worst in this movie and stroker ace)
burt moans all the time in interviews that he's not taken serious as an actor,well movies like this is the reason why,he doesn't act he just mugs for the camera and smiles,it takes more than that to be thought of as a great actor.
Another fine product of the American educational system.
