Eccentric casino millionaire Donald Sinclair invites a collection
of random characters to race from Las Vegas to New Mexico
for a prize of two million dollars. The contestants think
it's far too easy to be true - and they're right - everything
that could possibly go wrong does, and soon even the most
strait-laced among them are lying, cheating and back-stabbing
to get their paws on the cash. Meanwhile, Sinclair is organising
another giant gambling game in which he lures his wealthy
patrons to bet on the contestants and anything and everything
else they can think of...
Race is loosely, and I do mean loosely, based on the Hollywood
classic It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. The basic
premise stays the same - a group of misfits all racing to
get their hands on the money - but the rest of the movie is
are plenty of laugh out load moments and excellent cameo roles
including Kathy Bates as a squirrel loving nutter. There is
a bus full of I Love Lucy lookie-likies on their way
to a convention and a trip to a doll museum doesn't quiet
turn out as planned.
Atkinson play an Italian Mr Bean and John Cleese plays...
John Cleese as usual. But the rest of the cast pull in above
this ain't exactly Academy Award winning stuff. The jokes
are very un-PC and most of them can be spotted a mile away,
but Rat Race has a certain charm. But be warned - the
ending is so sickly sweat that sick bags should be given away
with the video.
you want a no nonsense, slapstick comedy with a laugh a minute,
then you will love this.
