Mother, Jugs & Speed is not Bill Cosby, Raquel Welch and Harvey Keitel as The Mod Squad, the TV series from 1968. Picture a light-hearted version of Martin Scorsese's 1999 film Bringing Out The Dead with a little of 1982's Night Shift thrown in for good measure. Harvey Keitel from Scorsese's 1973 flick, Mean Streets, adds to the mix

Overview

Mother, Jugs & Speed is not Bill Cosby, Raquel Welch and Harvey Keitel as The Mod Squad, the TV series from 1968. Picture a light-hearted version of Martin Scorsese's 1999 film Bringing Out The Dead with a little of 1982's Night Shift thrown in for good measure. Harvey Keitel from Scorsese's 1973 flick, Mean Streets, adds to the mix of great talents not being given a decent theme or script as Director/Producer Peter Yates walks through this sexist 1970s ode to movie making overindulgence and excess. The more subdued scenes with Larry Hagman, Keitel, Welch and certainly Cosby prove that, like Myra Breckinridge, pouring a ton of talent into a project that misfires is never a good idea. The future J.R. Ewing as an ambulance driver is...interesting... but Hagman leans more towards his I Dream Of Jeannie role here than the one which made him a legend. Allen Garfield is as overbearing and obnoxious in this outing as he was for a similar role in Beverly Hills Cop II eleven years later, and that's the very same problem with Mother, Jugs & Speed as a whole, over the top when a more serious tone would've made it something special.
