“Son, you got a panty on yore head.” – Hayseed in Pickup, Raising
Way back in 1998 IMDB first created message boards. They didn’t look like they do today. They were divided into “Men’s Room” and “Ladies Lounge” and the idea was to give each gender a place to discuss movies. The real reason for the separation was likely the fact that Amazon had just bought IMDB and they wanted to link to gender-specific products in each message board.
I mention this because the very first post ever made in the Men’s Room was “What is the best car chase in movies?” All the usual suspects were named. Since then the same question has been asked several thousand more times (and that’s probably a conservative estimate.)
While I’m not ruling out doing a car chase category in the future, I figured I’d put a little different twist on the subject and recommend some movies that have funny chase scenes in them.
The movies I am going to write about involve a man looking for a bride, a mix up over some suitcases, a bickering husband and wife in a van, and a man just looking to pick up some Huggies.
As I post the reviews, I will come back and add links here for those posts:
Seven Chances (1925)
What's Up, Doc? (1972)
Raising Arizona (1987)
Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
On to the reviews…
