| Great childhood memories of this fun movie
I saw this movie when I was around 10 or 11 years old, and I loved it. I mean, come on, the story revolves around two 11 year olds stealing a Mercedes! I rented it for a flashback thrill in 1999 to refresh my memory of it. It is still a wonderful movie, so I bought it. Its a great movie to show to your little brothers and sisters or, if you have some, your own kids. There is a little violence, some swearing- but this is what kids love to see! I will treasure this movie forever, and never forget villains, the actor who play the German guy "Doc" is great! I always loved the main theme song to it, "Freedom Overspill," however I thought it was done by Peter Gabriel. I was wrong, it's Steve Winwood. But it's an easy mistake; Gabriel, Winwood, and Phil Collins can sound alike. See the movie! The kid in you will love it!
