It's a great movie to show at a party or any get together.
If you're suffering from depression, just watch this and you will no longer need Prozac!
I now have it in VHS and DVD. I have to watch it at least once every three months just to keep my sanity.
Technically Stanley Kramer - who is more noted for his dramatic works really took a chance and mad this movie not knowing how it would all come together. The adventurous of everyday people being pulled from heir everyday lives in a chase for $350,000 is hysterical.
This movie is a comedy galore. Everyone shines and everyone moves the story along and intertwines with each other. There are amazing stunts, matt photography and special effects that were done the hard way back then.
THE DVD extras has a great documentary on the beginnings and production of the films. Most of the original stars can be seen talking about how much fun and craziness went on the set. There are also deleted and reedited scenes that didn't make the final print. Those are really interesting.
This is a fantastic classic comedy film and if you have never seen it - buy this one sight unseen! It will make you laugh and wonder in amazement at how they did what they did without today's computers and technology! 7-30-02
