The concept is good but the prior comment hits the nail on the head, just too much jumping around, although the crashed Cadillac scene is entertaining

It could be a good movie until the editor has practice his untested skill in cut, paste and re-sequence. In my opinion, the long and tedious flashback sequences have effective destroyed this movie.
