The premise is OK, the car is cool, but the acting is high-school bad, and the plot is just silly. The CGI occasionally looks terrible (like they put a car going real fast in the desert, and it looks like someone blue-screened a matchbox car into the frame). And I still can't believe they switched the Pontiac for a Ford Cobra... Sure, the cobra Shelby is a muscle car, but not the same...

There's also lots of continuity errors- the most obvious is when the bad guys are in a helicopter. In one minute, they show THREE separate choppers, with three different tail ids... But the Hoff really looks good! Fit, clean, and not a hamburger in sight.

If you have a lemon-lime soda handy, that always helps me...

Hubby is a roller, so I am used to being smooshed into the corner. I have learned not to roll around too much over the years.
I love my couch. I tested it for nap-a-bility when we were shopping for it. Very comfy!

Was the original car a Trans-Am? The Trans-Am/Camero were the cars to have in high school! I don't know if a Shelby means as much to a high schooler today as it would 27 years ago. What is the car to have amongst the teen set these days?

He must find the perfect spot. The one spot that says, "All this is mine, and by my benevolence you are allowed to be graced by my presence." Takes time to find a spot like that. It can't be the same spot as last time, because that spot is no longer good enough.

It was a Pontiac Firebird. Trans-Am was the preferred mode of transport for The Bandit in the Smokey movies (the first of which is one of my guilty pleasures of all time movies).

Shelby is used since it's the 50th anny and has a mystique to it. What is the car to have among teens? no clue, as I do not have any. But one would expect it would be something like the Mini Cooper, or some form of a BMW...

Mmm... heated toilet seat. Would be extra special in our house- the bathroom gets real cold at night, and DW would love it.

THat is interesting. It says the cord length is 4'. I don't know many bathrooms that have an outlet w/i 4' of the toilet.

The original movie was cute, the sequels got old fast.
Most of the male teens around here have pickup trucks. I haven't really noticed what the girls drive.

I loved the original series. Sure, it was hokey, but that was part of its charm.

HOORAY! I finally got a tracking number for my fish shirts I received on Tuesday!

Lots of jeeps & suvs. It amazes me (and my son actually!) how many kids around here drive brand new and expensive trucks, cars, & suvs. I would never get a 16-17 year old a new car. The insurance must be ridiculous.

It was built in 1970. The master bath has the sink in a separate dressing area. That's where the outlet is located. Tub and toilet in an adjoining room.
