Rat Race

  • Rat Race
  • Cuba Gooding Jr, Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese, Jon Lovitz, Whoopi Goldberg
  • Directed by Jerry Zucker

Rat Race is an overheated, underdone farce about a treasure hunt that slimes such top comics as John Cleese (with slipping dentures), Rowan Atkinson and Jon Lovitz, and three Oscar winners (Whoopi Goldberg, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates) in what is basically an uncredited rip-off of 1963's It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Race for the exit.
