    I remember a movie (Crime / Hiest / Comedy?) that featured this long chase scene involving a slew of Mini Cooper's?

    Can anyone help me out with the name?

    Thanks in advance

    Italian Job, Michael Caine (also Benny Hill), great fun, as far as I know, not on DVD (hopefully, yet).

    Little bit of trivia, to do with the Mini's in The Italian Job,... during an episode of MacGyver, where he helps some gypsy pickpockets escape from Hungary (I think) Mac and the gypsies escape in three mini's. Much of the sequence from The Italian Job is used.
