Speeding is like masturbation, everyone does it ,but it's not something you should record and put on the internet!!

I image in would be similar to removing a 3m clearbra?

In which case I've been told a steamer, heat gun, alcohol and solvents help. I've never given it a go myself because I lack the testicular fortitude.

Once the film itself has been removed I'd try to use a label removed to pull off any residue before using a plastic blade or scotchbrite because you will end up with some nice hazing.
