An Edwardian air race from London to Paris provides lots of laughs and entertaining misadventures in this fast-paced and nostalgic British romp. Set in 1910, it sees a madcap group of international pilots caught up in cheating, mishaps and even love trouble, when they battle to win the £10,000 prize money being offered by a stuffy newspaper mogul. From a roguish English toff to a rugged American cowboy, each of the aerial adventurers playfully sends up their national stereotypes, as they try to beat off their rivals so they can reach the French capital first. Slapstick stunts, fabulous vintage planes and zany dialogue add to the gentle fun, while the cast boasts some of the era’s brightest comedy stars.
