D.J.: Hi there everybody. Looks like it's Monday morning again, and time for that old freeway report. Let's see, the Long Beach appears to be loaded, Seemey stuffed, Pasadena plugged, Corona crammed, Santa Monica strangled, Riverside rotten. There's a big bind on the Bernardino, a mess on the Miranda, a grind on the Glendale, and a no no on the Newport. If that's not bad enough, I'm sad to report there has been tragic accident on the San Diego. Tragic. A liquor truck has overturned, ...

Four strangers are thrown together in a carpool when a bag of money, almost a million dollars, falls from a Brinks truck into their path. Because of circumstances, they are unable to turn in the money, and they struggle over what to do. They are pursued by thieves, the mob, and the police.

From the interesting theme song to the quirky characters, this is a comedy that should not have been forgotten... but apparently was. I know the biggest star in it is Ernest Borgnine (prominently on the cover, not much in the actual picture) but everyone in it is funny.

I wish this was a better-known film, maybe something Shout Factory could pick up and release.
