Last treat of the year

Just got back from the flicks, went to see this brilliant movie about cars 'n stuff. "Skiffle", I think it was called, although the background music didn't sound like Lonnie Donegan had had any part in it.

Anyway, they had James May getting shot dead on a train, then he was alive again and, totally out-of-character, he even pulled a bird in the shower, before having a spate of bad luck trashing vehicles just like he does on Top Gear. He didn't like driving his mum's posh car so he ditched it in favour of an old Austin Martin that he'd been doing up in his garage. He and his mum used that one to get away to a bothy, in what's left of Scotland's wild countryside, for a bit of a shooting holiday. Then he got that car trashed too. Come to think of it, he's not really that good with cars.

I don't usually go in for James May films but I thought I'd catch one of the Craig David ones before he gets replaced by Idris Elba.

I'm giving it a 10/10 rating despite the misleading title.
