Ron Howard's funnier and faster. He's a high speed disaster.

See the greatest cars in the world destroyed. Rolls Royce , Cadillac , Lincoln , Mercedes Porsche and 43 screaming street machines.

n exchange for being allowed to make his directorial debut in Grand Theft Auto, Ron Howard agreed to take no salary as a director, merely as star and co-screenwriter (with his dad Rance). The plot finds Sam Freeman (Howard) eloping with his heiress girlfriend Paula Powers (Nancy Morgan). Her mob-connected dad Bigby Powers (Barry Cahill) vehemently opposes the marriage, and isn't about to change his mind now that Sam has stolen his Rolls-Royce and sped off to Las Vegas with his daughter in tow. Marion Ross, Howard's Happy Days mom, turns in an offbeat supporting characterization.

The film was a commercial success, earning over $15 million at the box office,[4] but critical reception was more mixed.[5]
The film was released on Region One DVD in 1999, and re-released in 2006 and 2008
