Audience Reviews for The Young Racers


Roger Corman directs this rather boring film about auto racers in the Grand Prix in Monaco. It doesn't come off like Corman put much effort into this one, or that he really cared. I get the impression he was just making a movie to make a movie, and was able to use the Grand Prix location, and maybe some he took advantage of that. The acting is stiff, and the movie isn't goofy enough to enjoy in a so bad its good kind of way. Plenty of more enjoyable Corman Classics to go for before I'd watch this.

This is really just another stupid romance movie, but with the main characters being race car drivers. It's really boring unless you really enjoy watching car racing and think that should be combined with a romance movie.
