Great Picture, Bad Editing
29 December 2008 | by PeterPizzazzSee all my reviews

This is a great movie. I first saw it in my younger years on cable and loved the gags. Now, much older but not too much more mature, I can still appreciate the gags - I have to say the editing in this movie is horrible! Very disjointed and the sequencing makes no sense. Each scene is a gem in it's own right, but whom ever threaded this together left something to be desired. I guess since there are at least 5 story lines going on, you will find something you like, but don't get too involved - your head will spin by the time they get back to it. Great soundtrack, awesome cars - fun to see many stars first time out - Hubba Hubba to Michelle P. Look for the skinny cop in Spaceballs. Now that it's on cable - it's a fun-must see. I'm glad I never paid for it though!
