Synopsis

Wild and wacky road movie that had a blockbuster budget, a mammoth cast and an original running time of over five hours - everything about it, from the stunts to the acting, is over-the-top. When bankrobber Smiler Grogan gets out of jail, he sets off to retrieve a fortune in stolen money he'd buried many years earlier. When he crashes his car on the way, he uses his dying words to tell the witnesses to the accident where the money is hidden. They then start a mad chase to beat the others to the loot. All manner of obstacles stand in their way, including car trouble, eccentric characters, the police and, naturally, each other! Who - if anyone - will make it to the money in one piece?

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
