Race to Forrest Gump
& Independence Day
He's been a boxer with a deadly punch.
He's been the most powerful man in the universe. He's been an
expendable. He even has a degree in chemical engineering AND a 3rd dan
black belt in Kyokushin karate.
... but is Dolph Lundgren really ready to
be Phil Keoghan? That's what we're here to find out as
ReelzTVaboutMovies launches its first game show, a hybrid race and stunt
affair. Three teams of two will race into the scenes of two of the

RACE TO: Forrest Gump
TOUCHDOWN: On the same football field
where Tom Hanks used to "run, Forrest, run!", your team must catch five
footballs and run them down field for five touchdowns. But it won't be
easy, because you will have to negotiate through six obstacles: the tire
run, the risers, tackling dummies, step-over dummies, pylons, and
blocking sleds. After you complete the challenge, check your phones for
text messages to the next one.
The curveball, you will be running like
Forrest did... in a leg brace.
The Blues are the first to get dressed
and move to the obstacles, while the others have issues with getting
their braces on. They're the first to score a touchdown, while the Reds
are the second. Dolph really likes to talk about his mother in Sweden.
Good for him.
Blue team is the first with Blue Balls...
two of them. Reds catch up and ultimately they're on a tie with three.
The Greens... still behind with one. The BLUES WIN the challenge, and
they're going to the next...
... as are the Reds. They are 30 seconds
Let's do some more running.
RUN FORREST!: In the movie, Forrest ran
across the country to look for answers. Here, you'll be running all the
way around campus in a beard and very short shorts looking for a box
"sitting on a nearby bench" with your next challenge.
And the Blues are first again! And in the
A BOX OF CHOCOLATES: Each team has a box
of chocolates. Each chocolate is the same save for one. You'll have to
eat through the chocolates in order to find the one with the WHITE
... and the BLUES are the first to find
them just as the Greens are getting started on their box. They are
allowed to race to the next scene... Followed quickly by the Reds AND
RACE TO: Independence Day
The teams must now race across LA to the 2nd Street Tunnel, where Dolph
is awaiting with the next set of challenges based on the movie where
Will Smith whooped ET's ass. Meanwhile, the Blues... miss their exit,
allowing the Reds and Greens to catch up.
... and the first team there is the Blue
EXIT STRATEGY: Hidden in a cavalcade of
abandoned cars are six team-colored puzzle pieces and one stuffed golden
retriever. Find them and put the puzzle together. Be warned, your team's
door is located in a blast zone where you will be attacked by fire. Once
you've solved your puzzle, take your dog and proceed to the next
We did mention fire, right?
The Reds are second, followed by the
The Blues can't find their sixth piece,
allowing the Reds to catch up... but the Blues find their piece... as
does the Reds. This is a tight race. Now to put it all together and get
the door open.
The Blues are complete, and they can race
on. The Reds are still struggling. The Greens... are still looking for
their final pieces. The Reds... are finally out.
WHUP ET'S ASS: Using a GPS, the teams
have to enter coordinates to find a suitcase detonator and a ball of
wires somewhere in downtown Los Angeles. Once you find the items, return
to the 2nd Street Tunnel.
And once again, Red and Blue are neck and
neck, while the Greens are still on the first stage. Wait, not anymore.
The Reds... TAKE THE LEAD! Now to find the balls of wires. But first,
the Blues catch up. It is a race! The Reds find the ball of wires first
AND get back to the tunnel!
THE FINAL CUT: Untangle your wires and
connect them from the detonator to the ignition box. They must put the
ignition wires in the correct order from left to right in order to win
Meanwhile, the Greens need to find their
bomb and their wires. Once they do, they make a startling realization.
"We're running with a detonator and a
ball of wires in the middle of the night in downtown LA.... "
"I'm dressed up as a Muslim with a detonator in my hand."
"This is gonna go over well in LA."
The Blues arrive to untangle their wires,
in time for the Reds to retangle their wires. The Greens arrive at the
tunnel, but can they untangle their wires in time? The Reds have made
strides, but most of their lead is now gone. And the Reds are now
fighting. This is still VERY CLOSE.
And the Blues... .. need to reset their
wires. Second try...BOOM! GAME OVER! BLUES WIN!
Their prize: $10,000 and a new Camping
World luxury RV!
Going from scoring touchdowns to saving
the earth from the scum of the universe. Just another day in the movies.
