About the Movie
A very loose remake of the classic multi-star comedy It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963), this madcap comedy is directed by Jerry Zucker, one third of the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker comedy team and director of Ghost (1990). John Cleese stars as an eccentric casino owner who devises a contest pitting six teams against each other in a race to claim two million dollars from a locker in New Mexico. The competitors are Owen (Cuba Gooding Jr., who ends up driving a bus full of Lucille Ball imitators, a foreigner (Rowan Atkinson) who hitches a ride in an organ donor vehicle, and a recently reunited mother and daughter (Whoopi Goldberg and Lanei Chapman) who anger a "squirrel lady" (Kathy Bates) — much to their regret. There are also two con artist brothers (Seth Green and Vince Vieluf), the upright Nick (Breckin Meyer), who gets a lift from cute but psychotic pilot Tracy (Amy Smart), and the eccentric Pear family, headed up by Jon Lovitz. Rat Race also stars Dave Thomas, Kathy Najimy, Wayne Knight, Dean Cain, and Paul Rodriguez.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An overheated, underdone farce.
Rotten: Race, which delights in bashing all manner of transportation, hits its silly stride early and never shifts into a higher gear.
Fresh: Expert comic performers and a broad script that avoids mean-spiritedness create surprising laughs.
Fresh: The funniest film to come along since South Park.
Rat Race is the funniest movie of all time! A lot of good actors in it also. I realy enjoyed it.

I know its a knock off of Its a mad mad mad world but its hilarious you won't stop laughing
The Best Movie Ever!!! I've Seen it 18 times in counting!!!!!
This is my top favorite movie. There isn't one scene where you won't laugh. Scary enough, I have seen this movie 18 times. (Yes, I have kept count.) The best scene in the movie is when Jon Lovits's family is driving in the WWII vehicle. I was laughing so hard that I had to play the scene again jsut to hear what they were saying. This isn't just a movie where the theme is funny. This is a movie that will always keep you laughing. I highly reccomend this movie and give it 500 stars and 200 thumbs up!
