This comedy extravaganza stars Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood, Peter Falk and other drivers who wheel westward in wacky turn-of-the-century autos fro a New York to Paris race.

Very good and on time
Fab, Funny, Family Film

What can I say, loved this film, it's mad, fab, hilarious, pure slapstick comedy, great for all the family-kids will love it. Cold, rainy day movie to watch and have a laugh! have just ordered it, mainly because I adored Jack Lemmon, also for the passing of the "Great Leslie" -
Mr Tony Curtis, always to be remembered.

150 minutes of slapstick comedy fly by in this wonderful dvd.
Jack Lemmon is superbly OTT especially in the spoof 'Prisoner Of Zenda' sequence. He is ably supported by his henchman Max Meen [Falk] as they connive to win the race by all means foul.
The DVD is razor sharp with great colour and is complete with overture, three-minute intermission plus exit music giving a full theatrical experience.

A True Classic - More Pies!

After the inspired casting of Lemmon and Curtis in 'Some Like It Hot' they are reunited but on opposite sides this time.
Tony Curtis is the sickeningly perfect hero, ' The Great Leslie.' Dressed in dazzling white attire with a sparkling smile.
Jack Lemmon steals every scene and eventually the entire film with his brilliant portrayal as the pantomime villain and another character, but to say more would spoil it for you.
Natalie Wood is superb, playing the emancipated woman with great skill. Is there an actress today with her beauty and ability?
Peter Falk (Columbo), shows he has perfect comedic timing and does his best to assist the Professor in bungling every task he is given.
It's a long film, but doesn't drag, each scene expertly shot, directed and acted. The laughs are spaced out to keep the rythm of the film rolling along.
Highlights for me:
The bakery scene, (how did they keep Curtis clean?) Jack Lemmon in both his characters.
An absolute must see, faultless performances, in-offensive, hilariously funny in places.
Gather the family round you, cuddle up on the sofa together and enjoy on a cold, damp weekend afternoon.
Pity it's only available on region 1.
