Runaway Car (1997)

How bad is it? TV movie, implausible to the extreme, with poor acting.
Should you see it? It's actually enjoyably stupid, so yes.

A car has some serious malfunction: it can't stop, it's speeding up to 100 mph (which looks to be maybe 55-60), the doors won't unlock and there's even a baby on board. There's some serious script problems and some continuity errors (the car hood, notably) and some atrocious acting, but the biggest problem is the harebrained rescue - the baby gets winched out through the sunroof by a remote-controlled plane - and then that plan gets abandoned for the others, who end up just walking away. "Based on a true story!"
