It's not high art, but I love it.

This is what I call one of my "guilty pleasure" movies. It's not a particularly well-made movie, and it is, admittedly, somewhat dated, but for some reason I never tire of watching it, and it still makes me laugh every time. I'm sure this makes me a geek (and some, I'm sure, will argue a geek with a poor sense of humor), but I think this film is hilarious. I've easily seen it 300+ times and have the whole thing memorized, and I still laugh at it. I love sophisticated comedy, old classics, art-house films, epics, and blockbusters as much as the next guy; but when I just need pure mindless entertainment or a good laugh, I pull out this film, and it always does the trick. Scavenger Hunt has a talented cast of famous names from the seventies, including Richard Benjamin, Richard Mulligan, Cloris Leachman, Tony Randall, Roddy McDowall, James Coco, Cleavon Little, Willie Aames, and Dirk Benedict plus cameos from such names as Vincent Price, Avery Schreiber, Scatman Crothers, Ruth Gordon, Liz Torres, Meat Loaf, and Arnold Schwartzenegger. Richard Mulligan, Avery Schreiber, and Stephanie Faracy play my favorite characters (actually I enjoy the whole servant team, which includes Faracy, McDowall, Little, and Coco). I remember seeing this movie as a kid, and I thought it was so funny (and maybe that's why I like it so much, because it reminds me of my innocent days of youth). I realize this flick isn't for everyone, but I find it humorous and entertaining, and it's clean. Some of the characters are overly broad, some of the humor is stupid, and some situations are simply unbelievable, but if you just go into this movie knowing that it's far-fetched comedy for comedy's sake and understand that it isn't taking itself seriously, you can still have a good time. I know I have.

An Unsung Classic

This movie has not been given the credit it deserves. An all star cast, well written script, and crazy situations makes this movie a classic, in my opinion. If you enjoy movies like "Rat Race", "It's A Mad Mad Mad World", and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", you'll love Scavenger Hunt. It is very dated (1970s period) but it is definately worth watching. By the way...keep an eye out for several camios including a very young Meatloaf and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This film is quite well done and very funny

I love "Scavenger Hunt." I saw it on HBO when I was a kid and have remembered lines and bits from it well into my adulthood. I had not seen the film for 20 years when I remembered it and rented the videotape. I was charmed again as I watched with my wife, and we both laughed at the wonderful gags. The climax is terrific. As all fans of this film probably know, this is an underrated classic and is available only on VHS, and even that is hard to find. This film is very clever, and not at all "cheesy." I can't understand why people think 'Spaceballs' or the disgusting Austin Powers movies are funny, but a film like 'Scavenger Hunt' surpasses those kind of films by being hilarious without resorting to the desperate potty humor so prevalent in so-called recent comedies.
