  • SpacePirate's rating of the film Jalopy

    Absolutely pitiful film, but part of its charm.I myself enjoy this kind of dumb early 50s comedy. Similar to Stooge shorts with Shemp at the time (in fact the premise is basically a rewrite of Fuelin' Around with Shemp). Bad guys are laughable here, not the least bit menacing and the actress playing the femme fatale seems like this is her screentest that failed. Just bad. Still, 1.5 stars bc the Boys are enjoyable.
