It's much funnier than the remake (although I could have done without Coward's over-the-top scenes), the stunt driving is impressive, and I really liked the way it ended. Worth watching.
That was probably the longest car commercial I've seen and definitely with some of the most spectacular driving. It was a lot fun, a lot of silly, and a whole lot of whacky unexpectedness. Kind of unexpectedly good. Check it out.Added 16 July 2004 at 7:40 PM
