Car Trouble is a 1986 British comedy film starring Julie Walters, Ian Charleston and Vincent Riotta. The film has been described as a coarse British farce comedy.[1]


In the throes of a midlife crisis, a man buys a 1965 Jaguar E-Type[2] sports car and it immediately becomes his new love. What he does not know is that his wife is as attracted to the Jaguar salesman as he is to the car; the wife and lover experience Penis captivus in the car after a reckless accident.
