Stop the Monkeys?
9 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is this the movie from whence came the phrase:

Please stop the monkeys!

I saw such a movie, years ago, wherein a race car driver was brainwashed (by making him watch video of the winged monkeys from Wizard of Oz) and programmed to assassinate some VIP by (if I recall) crashing his car into the stands where said guy was to be seated at a specific race.

But I don't remember the name of the movie I saw, I am simply going by someone's claim that this is the movie, plus the Baum writing credit above. Anyone know for certain?

If so, this movie belongs in the special club of media which created some long-term cultural impact, and yet was itself forgotten. One can find 'stop the monkeys' references all over the net, yet nobody seems to know where it came from.

Reminds me of "We don't need no stinking badges", from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
