If Looks Could Kill - Are We in Europe or Not?
In Richard Greico's 1991 offering, most of the movie is set in Europe, and while the producers took great pains to include many European cars (including authentic license plates), every one of them drove from the left-hand side. Oddly enough, everyone also drove on the right-hand side of the road. Funny, I seem to recall pretty much all of Europe being just the opposite.

You're confusing Continental Europe with the UK. While I haven't seen the movie in a while, the initial action is set in France including the racing scenes. The movie is about a French summer class trip. Regardless, unless the movie is set in the 60s/70s, then Sweden has already converted to driving on the right and so all of Continental Europe is driving on the right side of the road by the time of this movie. Even still, while English custom (and its colonies) was to pass on the left and thus later drive on the left, French custom was to pass on the right, anyway. So, sorry, this isn't a slip-up.

Totally true indeed JustJay. This is no slip-up at all. All of Europe drives on the right side of the road, except England. And you may recall a line from this movie, "I am the French teacher." Why would a French teacher take her class on a trip to England. It was a trip to France. No slip-up here.
