The Ruling Class is that rarity, a successful, satiric film. No other genre is so plagued by good intentions and regrettable results.

The plot is convoluted but director Peter Medak makes some good satirical points about the British class system and Peter O'Toole is terrific in a well-deserved Oscar-nominated performance.

A wonderful, wild ride. Peter O'Toole is outstanding.
