A silly remake of an old classic, a bunch of eccentrics race across the country towards two million dollars. Hijinks ensue. The great cast is what sells RAT RACE and I'll always hold it dear in my heart. For some laughs, I recommend it.

Pretty standard slapstick, although the bet scenes, with John Cleese and Dave Thomas, are occasionally amusing.

Movie Review Rat Race

Within the lime light of Las Vegas several groups of tourists find themselves being brought together despite the many differences everyone of them have from each other. What brought them together was the head honcho of a very successful casino, the boss. Each one receives a strange coin inviting them for a once in a life time opportunity created by the owner himself, though none of them are quite aware of this as of yet. Left with time to get acquainted with each other the mysterious owner makes his appearance, informing them all of a locker at a train station in Silver city New Mexico, and in such locker lies 2 million dollars; the first person to get the money wins it all for themself to do with whatever the please. With the race commenced join the gang of cut-throat misfits willing to do anything and risk their very lives to win this race and get the 2 million dollars. With the airports radar dish damaged by two of the contestants everyone is forced to find a new way to reach the city before the others, some methods crazier and more wacky then you could imagine. Each person's adventure brings on it's own source of pain, torment and torture in the most comedic of ways.

Feel absolutely free to join in on this hysterical comedy movie, with a cast of legendary comedians and comedy actors you are guaranteed to laugh out loud until your sides hurt, and find out just which one of the wacky contestants will win the 2 million dollars.
