63 miles. 9 people. $2 million. 1001 problems!
An all-star cast proves just how far people will go for the chance to win $2 million in Jerry Zucker's RAT RACE. In the tradition of Zucker's AIRPLANE and NAKED GUN 2–1/2: THE SMELL OF FEAR, this film features wild chase scenes, slapstick comedy, sight gags, impossible situations, and zany characters.
Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Lovitz, Rowan Atkinson, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Seth Green, and Breckin Meyer star as the lucky winners of special tokens in the slot machines at a Las Vegas casino. Casino owner John Cleese informs them that they are invited to participate in a race: the first of them to reach Silver City, New Mexico, will receive the $2 million cash prize.
- " You'll laugh. You'll laugh so hard you cry. You'll hold you're sides from laughter. And then, you'll laugh some more. And after you've seen it once, you'll “race” back to the theater and see it twice just to make sure you get all of the jokes. " – Debbie Lynn Elias
- " It made me laugh, and that's my definition of funny. " – Margaret A. McGurk
- " …the film stands as a frequently gut-busting comedy that falls just short of greatness (or, at the very least, consistency). " – David Nusair
