As the US title would indicate this is a sort of following to ¨Thosemagnificent men in their flying machines¨ (1965) . In an internationalcar rally , competitors must travel from various points in Europe toMonte Carlo, then race their cars . As daring young men in noise slowcars trek 1500 miles across nation in the 1920s race . Contestants comefrom all over the world from Norway , Italy , America and othercountries . Things are complicated by shenanigans , hijinks ,double-crosses , honor , medicine , and love at first sight ; all ofthem are founded along the route . A dastardly villain (Terry Thomas)and his steward , an escaped inmate (Gert Frobe), an American hero(Tony Curtis) , a downtrodden manservant (Eric Sykes) , two militarygentlemen (Dudley Moore , Peter Cook) are the competitors , amongothers . Meanwhile , a nobleman named Sir Cuthbert Ware-Armitage(Terry-Thomas) has sabotaged cars that start coming apart here , thereand everywhere .

Auto race in an uproarious European tour ,circa 1920 ,completed withcrashes , cheating , snow-chases , smuggling , inventions , bounds andleaps . These spectacular old cars provide the most side-splittingmoments in a picture whose greatest assets are the animated RonaldSearle cartoons and the beginning , middle and final . Dudley Moore andand Peter Cook have various fun moments , while Gert Frobe is great asan astute villain . There's rather too much romance between TonyCurtis-Susan Hampshire and Lando Buzzanca-Mireille Darc . Specialmention to Terry Thomas again in dastardly form as a British nasty whoplans to sabotage all his rivals in the Monte Carlo rally . Thisfollowup to ¨Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines or How IFlew from London to Paris in 25 hours 11 minutes¨ had the same director(Ken Annakin), writers (Jack Davies and Annakin), composer (RonGoodwin), and five actors . Terry-Thomas played the son of hischaracter in the earlier movie, and Eric Sykes' character was again anemployee of Terry-Thomas'. Gert Fröbe, William Rushton, and MichaelTrubshawe played unrelated roles. Lively and jolly musical score by RonGoodwin and theme song was sung by Jimmy Durante , including a piece ofmusic entitled "The Schickel Shamble" which accompanies many of GertFröbe's scenes . Colorful and evocative cinematography by Gabor Pogany.

¨Montecarlo or Bust¨ belongs to a trilogy in which old machines such ascars and planes participate into spectacular races across Europe : thefirst was ¨The great race¨ by Blake Edwards with Tony Curtis , NatalieWood , Ross Martin , Arthur O'Connell ; the second was ¨ThoseMagnificent Men in Their Flying Machines or How I Flew from London toParis in 25 hours 11 minutes¨ (1965) in which a wealthy newspaperpublisher is persuaded to sponsor an air race from London a Paris ,being directed by Ken Annakin with Stuart Withman , Sarah Miles , GetFrobe , Terry Thomas , Red Skelton ,Irene Demick and the third this¨Montecarlo or bust¨.

This inferior sequel was professionally directed by Ken Annakin ,though being sporadically funny and overly long : Ken was an expert onAdventure genre as ¨The new adventures of Pippi Longstockings¨, ¨Piratemovie¨ , ¨Paper tiger¨, ¨The fifth Musketeer¨ , ¨Call of wild¨, ¨TheSwiss family Robinson¨, ¨Land of fury¨, ¨The Sword and the Rose¨, ¨Thestory of Robin Hood and his Merry Men¨, ¨Third man on the mountain¨ andWartime genre as ¨Battle of the Bulge¨, and ¨The Longest day¨.

Like many other racing comedies, 'Those Daring Young Men in their JauntyJalopies' suffers from simply having too much going on at once. The filmhas so many different characters it tries to devote time to, it's easy toforget everything that's going on. It seemed like whenever Tony Curtisappeared on the screen I thought "Oh yeah, forgot he was in this." Thefilmmight be considered a multi-car wreck had it not been for Peter Cook andDudley Moore. Cook plays a British inventor, Moore his trusty sidekick.These two have all the best lines in the movie, and their deadpan deliveryis perfect.

A Total DudReviewed bydrednmVote: 2/10

This one is a misfire on all counts. Most of the cast is lousy, the story is dull, the direction nonexistent, and the film is too long. It drones on and on cutting from one group in the car rally to another. The Germans and Italians and the "girls" are almost impossible to understand, so that cuts what you can follow to three groups. But all the little subplots go nowhere and the special effects are hideously bad. Location shooting mixes with bad studio shots and the bizarre mix of 60s fashion in a 1920s setting is stupid. Other than the cars, nothing in this film would remind anyone of the 1920s. To be fair, Susan Hampshire is bright, Terry-Thomas is always good, and Peter Cook and Dudley Moore seem to find the right comic voice for this type of farce. Tony Curtis is dreadful. Eric Sykes and Hattie Jacques are wasted in nothing parts. Jack Hawkins is dubbed. Even the usually reliable Gert Frobe is defeated by the unfunny script. Not a sequel to THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES and nowhere near its equal in charm or comedy. Jimmy Durante for some reason sings the lame theme song but does not appear in this film. The film barely broke $1M at the US box office so I assume this was a huge flop ... and deservedly so.
