An up-close and personal ride through lawlessness and fun.
19 January 2013 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

This is a genuine, ego-maniacal, spoiled little rich kids dream. The cars are an accumulation of the best, most beautiful, fastest whips you will ever set your eyes on, the women follow suit, and the lifestyle is what drives people wild for more and more. Young entrepreneurs, spoiled little rich kids, eccentric billionaires, and celebrities alike clamor to The Gumball Rally like kids to busted fire hydrants on hot summer days in so many movies.

Rob and Big are calmer than usual, but still entertaining, if a little lost in the enormity of it all. For me, the eccentric German was hilarious, and I really enjoyed all of the pompous arrogance of the super-rich, and their laissez faire attitude towards police and consequence. If this movie does not make you want to better your standing in life so as to be able to afford such idiocies as accepted entrance into the illustrious Gumball Rally, than I don't know what will. Really, what better reason to 'make it', than to do your absolute best to throw as much of it away as you can, with reckless abandon, when you finally have it.

I for one salute you Maxamillion, well done, I hope one day I can spend what the average person spends on a nice house to come and drive an overpriced Ferrari in your amazing, and ridiculously preposterous spectacle! It certainly looks like a lot of fun to have a lot of money.

My only knock on an exhibition of this kind is it's potential to injure and kill people, and that should not be taken lightly. However, with only one fatal collision since the Gumball's inception in 1999, the vast majority of accepted entrants do not take things too far, and have the utmost respect for human life. The race also does not provide a prize, or incentive of any kind, for the driver that arrives at the final destination first, so as to not encourage excessive speeds in densely populated areas (where very little of the race is ever planned).

Find this flick and watch it if you are the sort of person that can have a bit of a laugh on the outlying edge of the law. In my top 100 documentaries, maybe even top 50. Money well spent.
