The Italian Job, botched

Nothing to do with scooters, really, but as you surely know, the “new” (i.e. overpriced and lacking everything that was good about the “old”) “Minis” are coming on the tails of the “new” “Vespas” and “new” “Beetles,” and what better way to hype them than to poorly remake one of my favorite movies with a “coincidental” marketing tie-in. What are the odds that someone would decide to re-make The Italian Job the very same year that the new Minis came out? And Michael Caine, who’s like 60 now, can still kick Marky Mark’s ass.
