Its no classic!
- The Italian Job review by Colin Taylor
If you like Michael Caine and Minis,and the idea that the sixties was all about winning the World Cup and beating Johnny Foreigner, then you might like it, I suppose.
While watching it I was reminded of TV show 'On the Buses'-in which men who are way too old cop off with 'dolly birds' all the time and think that thats what the sixties were all about.Its got Benny Hill in it, for goodness sake!
Its no classic, and has dated terribly-all the women are excitable idiots who scream when the lights go out during a power cut, and are there as decoration only.
Why the fascination with gangsters and heist films, is that the only films Britain is good at?
Admittedly I watched this having just watched 'Casablanca'-theres more to that in the first 15mins before we even see the main characters than in the whole of this tosh.
