Their scheme involves causing a major traffic jam in the middle of Turin, Italy, which allows them to steal gold ingots from an armored car. The gold is then stashed in a bus, and the predictable chase ensues.

As a comic heist film, The Italian Job is diverting, though slight. As a feature-length advertisement for the MINI Cooper, however, it's an unqualified triumph.
