When millionaire Vincent Price dies, he leaves a riotous will which amounts to a scavenger hunt, the winner of which receives the entire willed fortune. So 15 potential heirs are sent on a zany quest where they must outrace and outsmart one another to inherit the big bucks.~Phillip Erlewine
i am not a fan of comedy. they usually fall short of the mark. i had not seen this movie in about 30 years when it was in the theater. i have remembered it all those years and wanted to see it again. when i say remembered i mean not much of the movie but bits and pieces.
it has a cast in it that gave their all for it and it shows. i was laughing through most of it. it is all good clean fun nothing offensive.
one scene that is one of my favorites is the removal of the toilet out of the hotel and them carrying it out after flooding the bathroom.
it is for the whole family and can be watched more than once.
Great movie very very funny older movie but it is very hilarious. Old comedian actors. Funny plot. The title tells it all. A bunch of people have a scavenger hunt to finish by a certain time to win a huge inheritance, that the deceased set up in his will.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
I was certain that this movie would never be released in a digital format. It was a favorite of my family when I was a kid. Picture and (especially) sound are not up to the standard you may expect from modern movies on blu ray. If you don't already live the movie it may not be your cup of tea. If you love Mad Mad World and Ray Race, though, give it a shot. It's one of my favorites.
An all star cast rounds out this 1979 comedy that has been very hard to find on home video ...until now! Cloris Leachman, Vincent Price, Richard Benjamin, Tony Randall, Ruth Gordon, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many more co star in this slapstick farce about an all day scavenger hunt that will lead to someone wining $200 million dollars in cash from the estate of recently deceased toy mogul (Vincent Price). Looks great on blu ray in Widescreen! One of my most favorite guilty pleasures from my childhood!
