  1. The funniest film to come along since "South Park," and one that succeeds in a more difficult and satisfying way.
  2. The easygoing silliness with which this late-summer movie surprise scuttles from mayhem to mayhem and the verve with which the cast throws itself into the fray are so cheering and liberating.
  3. Even though this will not go down as a great Zucker comedy, he has made Rat Race funnier than it could reasonably hope to be.

    Zucker gives the movie an ebullient spirit, but he also keeps everything at the same loud pitch throughout.
  5. 38
    Despite these flaws, people sick of gross-out films and teen-sex comedy may be so hungry for farce that they laugh.
  6. There's nothing more enervating than a stupid film with only random, and perhaps accidental, flashes of smarts; the rare prescient moments only serve to highlight how banal and vacant the rest of the movie is, especially when it stoops to conquer the gross-out market bled dry by the Farrelly Brothers and their myriad acolytes.

    Best comedy ever. One single cast member would have been a funny movie, but there's a lot of talent and great situational comedy. Still laughing after watching 10+ times. Expand

    "Rat Race" is one of the best comedies ever! It has a lot action,fun and quest! The characters are unique and amazing! The roads to the 2 million dollars are hilarious! And the ending was superb! It's just a MUST WATCH for everybody! I believe it couldn't be better so that's why my final score is 9/10 Expand

    A pretty clever movie with lots of big names. Everybody has their moments and there is laughs throughout the movie. The really good thing about the film is that it is a teenage sex comedy which is a relief. Expand

    Rat Race had potential to be a funny movie with a hilarious cast, but it's mostly lost in the script and sight gags that don't pan out as much as they should. Expand

    Basic plot is a Rich Casino owner setups up a competition with Random people in the Casino to race to a destination where $1 million is up for grabs.
    Now the main issue. Every single person involved in this has issues or is completely insane. There is not a single sane moment. The film explodes in Slapstick style with idiotic moments throughout. Its almost as if they had an stupidity play book and were marking things off as they go. A lot of the jokes are pretty tasteless.
    The characters get a bit of development throughout but its not enough for you to side with anyone. This may be the point of the film. The film closes in a friendly manner but the film just doesn't have any redeeming features. I really would not recommend this to anyone.

    How do people think this movie is good? Rat Race is a horrible, annoying, and unfunny movie that should've never been made.
