Vintage humour keeps a good taste - It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World review by JD

Spoiler Alert
16/03/2010

I am quite happy to try films from any decade and do not subscribe to the opinion that old films should be revered or modern films are better because of high-tech effects. This film is brilliantly directed and the acting is side-splittingly funny. It just shows that good humour is timeless. A pretty star studded cast, a recommended oldie.
