BRUM: CRAZY CHAIR CHASE is pretty cheesy, so be prepared for goofy costumes and melodramatic acting -- and lots and lots and lots of chase scenes. But there are some imaginative moments, such as Brum diving underwater to rescue a sinking safe, or circling a pole in pursuit of a pair of bad guys (both cars magically changing directions in the process). And adult viewers will likely find a scene showing gnome-obsessed Mr. Brillo admiring a gnome-Mona Lisa at the Big Town museum pretty amusing.

For Brum novices, this is as fine an entry point as any, since it's so similar to other adventures -- and Brum fans will be pleased to see their favorite yellow car in action, honking, flapping his doors, and driving at high speeds. They will see some other familiar characters as well, such as offbeat Granny Slippers. Note: a bench-sleeping homeless man also makes another appearance, still seeming somewhat inappropriate for younger viewers. Overall, this is fair fare, but nothing really to sound the horn about.
