Original Title:

Gumball 3000: Drivin’ Me Crazy

Essentially Wacky Races for the rich and famous, the annual Gumball Rally gives bored stars something to do with their car keys in-between trips to the garage. A 3000-mile continent hop with vehicles varying from silly to spectacular, the journey usually plays second fiddle to the parties along the way. Sadly, rather than getting a backstage pass to glamour, we get a road trip-cum-prison movie. Our guides, MTV Asia’s Jackass-style Aiya boys, have decided to do Gumball in a massive (and slow) RV, which means they miss all the fun, and we get lumped with 70 minutes of them shaving each other’s eyebrows off. While the boys are considerably more bearable than Steve-O and his ilk, the fleeting glimpses of the Gumball race zooming ahead of them make this too much like being the left-out child at a birthday party.

As an insight into Gumball's weird world it gives us precious little, as a car flick it stalls before it can get past the starting line.
