    Watching it made me realize it was a spiritual remake to It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World but the film had me laughing throughout and has a big cast including comedic legend John Cleese who I loved in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    I hadn't seen this for 17 years. Its still as zany and crazy funny as when I saw it for the first time. Best scenes: The Brothers with the cow , hot air balloon and monster truck. Whoopi and Lanai in the speed rocket car. Amy Smart / Breckin the helicopter scene. Cuba and the Lucy ladies. Jon Lovitz and the Hitler car. Weak links: Rowan Atkinson. Very irritating in this and not funny. None of his scenes were humerous and the scene with the heart was revolting. All in all this madcap zany comedy is still great. Loved it.

    A solid movie. Plot was entertaining, comedy was there, and it was pretty loaded in terms of the cast. I think the conclusion fell flat though and it had it's corny moments.

    Non sarà sicuramente il film più intelligente che io abbia mai visto, ma la storia divertente e l'umorismo generale mi hanno fatto apprezzare la pellicola più di quanto mi sarei aspettato. C'è un'alternanza contrastante tra scene esilaranti e convincenti e altre scene piuttosto ridicole, che rovinano parzialmente l'intrattenimento generale. Agli svariati personaggi viene dato il giusto tempo in scena, in modo da creare sequenze coerenti e mai noiose. Nel complesso non è certo un capolavoro, ma grazie ad uno strano tocco innovativo il film riesce a funzionare, portando una buona dose di buon umore ad una qualunque tipo di pubblico.

    An new take on 'It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World', put this on at a movie party if you want to have a grand time.
