Rat Race


ratraceA bored billionaire (John Cleese) hides a $2 million treasure and sends off eight people; who will be the first to find it? This is the budget version of Itā€™s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963) ā€“ instead of Spencer Tracy we get Breckin Meyer. The film suffers from weak writing and the elaborate gags tend to repeat themselves. The actors are more interesting; Jon Lovitz scores high points as a slightly psychotic family man and gambling addict who first finds himself in the wrong kind of Barbie museum and then behind the wheel of Adolf Hitlerā€™s car (!).

2001-U.S. 112 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Jerry Zucker. Cast: Whoopi Goldberg (Vera Baker), Jon Lovitz (Randall Pear), Rowan Atkinson (Enrico Pollini), Cuba Gooding, Jr., John Cleese, Kathy Najimy… Seth Green, Kathy Bates, Dean Cain.
