This one completely blindsided me. It started off being almost painful to watch, but as it went on, it...somehow managed to grow on me. It's still a completely terrible movie, but it develops a cheesy sort of charm as it goes on, peppered by some genuinely funny moments, and some truly impressive stunt driving. If you can get past the slow start, and some of the groaner bits later on, what you'll find is a sort of poor man's "Cannonball Run." That is, it's a goofy, ridiculous, slapstick race-to-the-money sort of film...apparently in more ways than one.
It seems that when this was first released, the producers actually DID hide a million dollars somewhere, inserting clues in the film as to its location: a lofty goal that ultimately failed to pay off. The film barely grossed the amount of the hidden prize money during its run in theaters. And that's kinda sad, because while this isn't a -good- film by any means, it still manages to be enjoyable when all's said and done.
