For Better or For Worse...

5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I think the wedding episode was the series highest rated, but its also one of the most disappointing.

Alan Oppenheimer returns to the series, this time as KAOS scientist Dr. Madre. Madre is coming over to the side of goodness and niceness and gives Max the highly sought after map to the Melnick Uranium Mines--in the form of a liquid! If Max stays standing up and does not scratch his chest for 48 hours, the valued map will appear on his chest in the form of a rash. The trouble is, Max and 99 are supposed to get married the next day and nobody, including the Chief and 99 believe Max's story about the map.

An inspired idea in concept, but in practice the story is forced and unfunny, with the exception of Admiral Hargrave (William Schallert) as Max's best man. The Chief also has a nice moment when 99's mom gets interested in him. But that's about it. There are a number of jokes that make Max to be too dumb: Max shoots a string of spaghetti because he can't find the end; Max pointlessly falls down the stairs in his apartment ; Max orders two KAOS agents into the closet in his apartment then goes in there himself instead; there is a "zany" chase with Max standing up in a goofy car driven by Madre who doesn't know how to drive as he races to the wedding that goes on endlessly only to be topped by an unfunny fight scene at the wedding in which they kind of forget about the idea that Max has to remain standing up for the map to form.

This should have been one of the best episodes in the series. Instead its one of the worst.
