"[An] underrated anarchic comedy. Sutherland was at his goofiest as an ex-jailbird..."
Three wacky misfits band together with the primary purpose of their loose-knit association being to cheat the establishment. One of their crazy ideas involves building an airplane of questionable airworthiness. AKA "The Final Crash."
A trio of establishment outcasts band together in the twilight of the 60s. The result is this offbeat caper starring Jane Fonda as Irish, the town prostitute, and Donald Sutherland as Veldini, a mild-mannered madman who dreams of making the world a better place by demolishing every automobile on the planet. Under his messianic spell, Iris and an unemployed acrobat help Veldini foment a Navy Yard break-in with the purpose of stealing a certain electrical part. They need it to get an old World War II plane flying again so they can wing off into the wild blue yonder -- leaving the society of repressive squares behind them.
