There's little to smile about in this hour-long special hosted by Alan Funt and son Peter. Set in California, most of the belabored skits involve automobiles and how their drivers react to frustrating situations. Gone is the innocent wackiness of years past, when you could giggle at un suspecting victims being provoked by paid actors. Nowadays these sequences sometimes seem to be headed toward freeway shoot-outs. Guest stars include Elliott Gould, Geraldo Rivera and Pia Zadora, whose skit about no-fault insurance plays like a punctured tire.
