The Ride1963

  • 2.6
From Gerald Potterton (director of the cult classic HEAVY METAL), this short film depicts the daydream of a chauffeur awaiting his employer. On a hot summer day, he begins to imagine that it's winter, the residential street where he's parked transforms into snowy mountains, and a series of comic misadventures begin. As the car is replaced by a toboggan, it carries the tycoon away on a dizzying ride. The chase includes some unforgettable antics in the snow, including a piggyback ride on an incredulous skier.

Recommended as nice cheesy comedy! I feel as though so much is captured here so well and the social commentary is seemingly still fresh. I found it to be a charming chuckle.

A little silly but good example of what Canadian film makers were up to at the time.

Standard slapstick situations relying on physical humor that unfortunately didn't come across as funny either. Someone else may like it.
