About the Movie

It's a mad, mad, mad mad farcical return to the days of the Keystone Cop comedies, on an Ultra Panavision scale, in this star-studded extravaganza. A multitude of people have been given a clue by a dying man (Jimmy Durante) as to the location of $350,000 in stolen bank money that he has buried. They cannot come to an agreement to seek out the loot as a cooperative unit, so they set out separately in a mad race to get to it first. They do not know that the state police are on to them and are simply allowing the loot-seekers to lead them to the stolen bucks. The loot-chasers are ruthless, devious, crackpot and very often dimwitted in their frantic, hilarious race. Stanley Kramer took an intermission from socially conscious subjects to direct this riotous comedy. Photography by Ernest Laszlo.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: So many excellent actors and stunt men do so much in this film that it is beyond my space allowance to begin to credit them. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The comic competition is so keen that it is impossible to single out any one participant as outstanding. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Stanley Kramer strikes out again with this elephantine 1963 attempt at uproarious comedy. – Don Druker, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Spencer Tracy, Sid Caesar, Mickey Rooney and host of good-old-fashioned-comedy chums cram in the action, but miss the laughs in this frantic bank caper comedy. – Film4, Jun 24, 2010

Great Film!!!

This is one of the best and funniest movies I've seen in a long and is a great way to waste away an afternoon but be warned becuse it's extremly long and will probably take about 2 gigs of space.
