Rat Race
2001
Loosely based on It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, this comedic adventure starts with six couples assembled at the Las Vegas casino of Donald Sinclair and ends at a train station in New Meixco, where a satchel stuffed with $2 million awaits.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

It's amiable enough for Comedy Central on a Sunday morning, but not much creativity went into this second-rate Mad Mad Mad Mad World wannabe. Unless you count Jon Lovitz driving Hitler's antique car as a spark of inspiration, more thought seems to have gone into this review than the script.

Steve West: I was actually very amused by Lovitz doing an unintentional Hitler imitation, Cuba Gooding's adventures with a busload of Lucy impersonators, and Whoopi Goldberg's Thelma and Squirrel cliff dive. Those isolated moments are surrounded by more mind numbing nonsense than a Marx Brothers marathon. − January 26, 2009 • more by Steve

Scott Hardie: Yep. And by the 700 commercials for Mind of Mencia that I saw during the broadcast. − January 26, 2009 • more by Scott

Amy Austin: Well, no wonder... that would have pushed me to "it sucked"! − January 26, 2009 • more by Amy
