First, I must admit with great shame that I've seen this movie at least fifteen times. But it's back when I was a teenager. At the time, I felt like this one was a sure classic. Times change. Thank god! This is a very stupid movie with tasteless humor and bad acting. A lot of cameos by famous stars didn't save the movie. Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. appear in this one, so is Telly Savalas, Jackie Chan, Tony Danza, Henry Silva and Frank Sinatra. I guess the only interesting aspect is the concept of the race itself. It would be great to be part of one of those trek!
I give it 4 out 10. Watch it on TV but don't pay for the rental.
