It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

I just finished watching this film and I HAD to write about it.

The title with so many "mad" in it is perfect. This film is wild to the exact meaning of the word.

Stanley Kramer, a director so well known about his extraordinary dramas, such as Judgment at Nuremberg, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and To Sir With Love, presents us with this magnificent comedy, not very t... read more

Director Stanley Kramer is probably best known for his serious dramas such as "Champion", "The Defiant Ones", "Inherit the Wind" and "Judgement at Nuremberg" etc so this film came as a complete change of pace for him. Stanley Kramer is to be congratulated for putting together such a brilliant cast of comedians in the one film. This is definitely a movie not to be missed. When Smiler Grogan (Jimmy ... read more

After a long prison sentence Smiler Grogan is heading at high speed to a California park where he hid $350,000 from a job 15 years previously. He accidentally careers over a cliff in view of four cars whose occupants go down to help.

CRITERION FILMS (781 movies items)

"Stanley Kramer followed his Oscar-winning Judgment at Nuremberg with this sobering investigation of American greed. Ah, who are we kidding? It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, about a group of strangers fighting tooth and nail over buried treasure, is the most grandly harebrained movie ever made, a pileup of slapstick and borscht-belt-y one-liners performed by a nonpareil cast, including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Spencer Tracy, Jonathan Winters, and a boatload of othe"

"When: July 8th-9th First-Time Viewing: No. How: VHS from my collection. What'd I Think?: Very funny, epic comedy. My Rating: 9/10 Other Notes: I watched the special edition that has 20 minutes of extra footage. Though I personally prefer the theatrical cut, if you like this film, the extended cut is worth checking out."

"Re-watch - April 22nd Unofficial 1963 double feature I say unofficial because while I did watch this & The Birds back-to-back at Alamo Drafthouse, to do so I had to hit two separate theatres. Fortunately this was screened early enough that I had plenty of time to get across town & still catch the pre-show entertainment for the film below. Now, prior to this screening Drafthouse had showed Mad, Mad World twice over the weekend & I was bummed I couldn't go. Well because they love me they wound u"
