I had heard good things about this but couldn’t get to the end of it! It’s a good cast but was there a joke in there at all? Not sure. ‘Classic comedy’ says the description and I was still waiting for that to start halfway through. Talking of which, for a movie about a race, there’s a lot of talking and not a lot of racing. Boo!
