Movie Info

In 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.

This is by no means a terrible movie, but I think we can all be thankful that Howard got this out of his system early on.

Audience Reviews for Grand Theft Auto

An action comedy involving car chasing and crashes of all kinds, but it also has a great, funny story. I really liked this movie, it's entertaining and enjoyable.
