Trivia

Sir Christopher Lee's last line in the movie, "La commedia e finita", is the last line of Ruggero Leoncavallo's tragic opera "I Pagliacci". It means, "The comedy is over." See more »

Goofs

Pretty much any time Christopher Lee is driving in the car with his sidekick, the camera is visible in the reflection on the sidekicks helmet. This starts at the beginning of the race and continues throughout the movie. See more »

Quotes

Feodor: [sings] Baboons on the road, what kind of sign is this? Baboons on the road, is this the end of bliss? I would rather see a rain of toads than hear that call: baboons on the road! I would rather see a rain of toads than hear that call, baboons on the road!
Count Borgia: Feodor, you know that I am fluent in twelve languages. Amongst all those noble and ancient tongues, there is but one solitary word that describes you with complete and total accuracy: putz.

Decent chemistry, Bad movie...
22 June 2001 | by jake-81See all my reviews

About the only item worth noting on this lackluster film was the chemistry between Stockard Channing and David Carradine. It seemed as if the two actors were reading off each others reactions rather than a script. Perhaps that was part of the problem with this movie.

At times this film reminded me of the Disney film "The Love Bug." Of course "Safari 3000" is no where near as good a movie as "The Love Bug," and that isn't saying very much. Absolutely skip over this movie and be glad you haven't given up two hours of your life.
