Mother, Jugs & Speed

The three titular characters are Bill Cosby, Raquel Welch, and Harvey Keitel, all very pleasant in their roles as ambulance drivers for company owner Allen Garfield. Their easy-going camaraderie, which provides a strong role for Welch, allows for many good behavioral moments.

The three titular characters are Bill Cosby, Raquel Welch, and Harvey Keitel, all very pleasant in their roles as ambulance drivers for company owner Allen Garfield. Their easy-going camaraderie, which provides a strong role for Welch, allows for many good behavioral moments.

The film starts off as pure farce but veers into tragedy when young driver Bruce Davison is killed by a junkie’s shotgun.

Other supporting characters also suffer from the film’s opportunistic grab-bag tendencies.

The film, based on a story by Stephen Manes and Tom Mankiewicz, remains oddly appealing despite its serious flaws # in many ways it’s an accurate reflection of what really goes on in hustling ambulance outfits.
