Million Dollar Mystery

Comedy
PG
Directed by: Richard Fleischer
Written by: Rudy De Luca, Tim Metcalfe
Starring: Tim Bosley, Eddie Deezen, Rich Hall, Kevin Pollak

Does anybody remember when Glad trashbags held a contest and hid a million dollars, made a movie filled with clues to disclose where the money was held? Well don’t worry, I didn’t either!

Basically put, Million dollar Mystery is a BAD remake of the classic film, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. Tom Bosley plays a wealthy man who croaks at a run down diner, but just before he dies, he hints to all the patrons where four million dollars is hidden. The hint, they are all hidden in a bridge. Of course, everybody scrambles, even working togther to find where the four million dollars is scattered.

Watching the film, your suppose to catch all the clues, and figure out where the last million is hidden, because that’s where Glad trashbag people hid it in real life. All I can say for this movie is that it’s bad! Terrible performances by grade ‘f’ actors. They probally should have titled this movie, “It’s a Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad Movie”.

I must admit, through all the stupidity, I did laugh one time at the scene at the toxic waste plant.

Last thoughts-the director should have taken the film and taken it out in a GLAD trash bag and never looked back!
