This is the movie that used to be called 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation".

Oddly enough, it's not being released theatrically here in the States (however, it gets a theatrical release in Australia). Rather, it's going straight to video on demand starting May 1. A few promotional theatrical screenings will be held leading up to that date, one of which will be held in Austin, TX. It will feature a Q&A with Mel presided over by Harry Knowles, founder of Aint It Cool News. Story at the link.

Had a good laugh with the trailer. I sure want to see this movie. Typical Gibson humor.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

I just watched it on DVD at home. It is a damn good movie with the typical Gibson humor. This absolutely reminds me of Air America and Payback. This is the real Mel Gibson acting an humor.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

He is a great actor, and if he got himself into shape he could do MM4 - a proper MM4 not some fricking happy feet CGI'd waterworld version (mustnt grumble...).

I couldnt give a bugger about his views on anything - i look at the art, not the artist.

Isn't that the sign you are done for (as an actor)?
