"Scavenger Hunt" is a good, if a bit exaggerate
In the movie, a rich man dies, and in his will, he leaves everything
to the winner(s) of a scavenger hunt for all sorts of crazy items, with
the stipulation that the items for the hunt can be acquired in any means
except buying them.
It features such goofball plots as one team trying to steal a suit of armor
from a museum by having one of their members wear it, but he stops and
stands still when somebody else comes, to avoid detection;
"somebody else" turns out to be one of the other teams, which tries to steal
the suit of armor, complete with the man inside it.
Scavenger hunts are sometimes called treasure hunts, though that also
refers to a different type of contest which is described on that node.
The Everything Treasure Hunt appears to have been an attempt to run a
scavenger hunt on Everything, but judging from the lack of responses,
it was unsuccessful.
