The Great Race
- 2 hr 40 min
This classic film is based on a crazy race between daredevils that take them across three continents. It is a slapstick comedy about the adventures each of the drivers experience as they race to the finish line. You will watch the racers try to sabotage each other and do anything they can to get ahead of the rest. They experience the Eiffel Tower, a small kingdom of drunks in Asia, and chaos in Russia. It is a Technicolor film starring actors/actresses such as Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Natalie Wood. This film cost them $12 million dollars, and at the time this made it the most expensive comedy movie ever made. This film is also known in film history for having the greatest pie fight ever, and it better be since it took a whole five days to film. The director, Blake Edwards, does a wonderful job of combining comedy and excitement that keeps the audience engaged the whole time.
