Hilarious! This movie will have the whole family keeled over in laughter! Jonathan Winters, Ethel Merman, Don Knotts, Mickey Rooney, and Spencer Tracey are only a few of the talented actors that help make this movie fun. The plot is entertaining and the car chase, plane chase scenes will certainly have the audience engaged.

We may never see a picture like "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" again. It has so many stars in the movie, who actually make major contributions. The script is funny and the film is loaded with the best comics of that time. It is still true from recent events, if people hear their is a fortune to be found, they will drop everything to go find it. Great fun for the entire family!

No idea what the movie is like since I have had it on hold for 8 months without getting to view it. For some reason there isn't even one copy.

Comic timing at its best! No extras on the copy I had.
