Upon viewing the film again on DVD I still laughed and laughed and laughed. This is a true testament of how some films are still funny, and perhaps, even funnier with repeated viewings and that great comedy never dies. While the film did a pretty decent box office take, I seriously do hope "Rat Race" finds an even bigger audience on home video.
What are you waiting for? The shotgun firing to begin? Go out and get this! The film, as I mentioned, features a load of visual jokes, many fully encompassing the widescreen aspect ratio to it's absolute best. I'd hate to watch "Rat Race" in pan and scam I'm not sure if they'd ruin the visual jokes exactly, but I feel there's more to get out of the film where there's more space in the shots to get Zucker's vision across and how it was really meant to be seen A lot of "Rat Race" takes place in exterior locations, and these locations do vary.
Whether from the sunny desert to the open road, a lot of this transfer changes constantly and it keeps up with it quite nicely. The image is incredibly crisp and sharp, giving off a true and natural 3-D feel to it. Toward the start of the movie contrast is a bit high, but it adjusts perfectly after a few minutes, and film grain goes down a bit as well. Colors are perfectly saturated to their fullest and best.
The hard edged interior scenes look very nice and realistic, while the reds from the Lucys to the greens of the fields, there is a lot to experience here. Detail is some of the best I've seen in a very long time, while black levels are dead on too. I noticed some noise rarely, as well as some nicks and blemishes, but they were never distracting. Another fine and incredibly strong effort from Paramount. I was expecting quite an experience with the 5.
This track is extremely active and doesn't slow down John Powell's frenzied and well paced score is well mixed throughout all of the channels, while dialogue is crisp, clear and easy to understand as the other sounds there are a load of sound effects do not overpower the dialogue while other sounds don't overpower other surrounding sounds. There is seriously an incredible amount to take in here, not to mention some wonderful bass extension that can really shake your floor.
From the clangs of chains the motorcycle gang hails at the Hitler car, the monster truck scene, cars screeching and moving fast, a little something getting hit by a fast moving train, a wild helicopter ride, background crowd noises, cow noises and a load more of wild, wacky and fun noises that boom, crash and delight with glee The 5.
No complaints here Bearing Paramount's "Special Collector's Edition" label, "Rat Race" may not be as jammed pack say as Forest Gump or Beverly Hills Cop , but features some nice features that any big fan of the movie, such as myself, will enjoy. There's a load of quality and stuff to get out of that makes up for the quantity namely, the phone conversations.
Taking clips from the trailer, clips from the film and behind the scenes footage, this pretty promotional documentary of sorts has a nice, laid back approach to it. The actors talk about their parts and the plot a bit, while Zucker and Breckman talk about more production aspects. This feature is broken up into the characters, actors, locations, the comedy and a whole lot more.
It's a nice watch and despite it being promo-ish, there's a good deal to enjoy and get out of from here. They're pretty short, but the "Moving House" scene did make me chuckle, while the "Talking Cow" scene, which is really short and never even tested, doesn't quite fit with the film. The Gag Reel is a bit under four minutes, and is pretty funny, though I wish was longer I'm sure there was a load of more on-set zaniness.
It's played to the film's main song shown at the opening credits. Lasting a bit over eight minutes, we can see the two go way back and have a good working relationship and have a fun attitude toward things. These guys, of course, have a great sense of humor. It has clips from the films over their voices at points or just show in their entirety, but the two discuss the finer points of making the movie as we also see some stills of the script. The two discuss changing some little things around, accomplishing some stunts and more.
Worth a watch for sure Vince Vieluf, Cuba Gooding, Jr. The two pester, make jokes, ask the actors about making the film, reminisce sorta and just have fun Breckman and Zucker are somewhat giddy, and this is just a pretty cool feature and a whole lot of fun. Breckman and Zucker mention recording a commentary, and it may seem that these phone recordings were going to be edited somehow into the commentary These can be quite lengthy and a lot of fun Rounding the DVD out is The Giggles , a really fun outtake scene from the end of the movie that keeps going and going.
It lasts a bit over five minutes including Zucker's introduction. Finally, we have the non-anamorphic widescreen Theatrical Trailer. Thankfully it doesn't give away the movie's best bits. There is some nice stuff here, even if it's not as funny as one may hoped.
I'm glad Zucker took a pretty active part on doing supplementary material, but I was a bit disappointed to learn that there was no commentary included despite the fact that we learn that Breckman and Zucker were in the studio recording a commentary.
It was originally announced when the DVD was announced, and is even referred to on the DVD, so it makes you wonder a little. I would have really liked to hear what he and Breckman would have to say about all the specific parts of the film. It kind of bugs me why Paramount failed to include the commentary It seems from the phone conversations Breckman and Zucker hit a slump while recording, and maybe they weren't happy with the commentary and how things were going.
Who knows. I think getting those two and the whole cast in a room together would have been a blast. And I absolutely adored John Cleese in this movie. He was perfect as a crazy old millionaire and every time we got to see what he and his millionaire friends were placing bets on, I about lost it. That was pretty funny stuff. So overall, I was disappointed in Rat Race. But I digress. Rat Race. Eh, if you feel the spirit move you, check it out.
I identified as a rental from the start but now having seen it I would have loved to see some of the visual payoffs on the big screen. But I really do! So as a lone positive voice, let me plead with you to give Rat Race a chance. Randy: Yeah, well, Hitler had it coming. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Rates on the Strip were higher than usual, so we made a decision to go off the Strip and try the Cannery. Rates were higher than usual, but since there were no extra resort or parking fees, we though we would give it a go. Check-in was quick and easy. The room was clean, quite and overlooked the pool. Several issues had us a bit disappointed. First, our room was a good 2 minute walk away from the casino.
We walked down one corridor only to find we had to walk down another. It's design of the hotel, but it was poorly thought out. Being handicapped, this was not easily completed. Another issue was the lack of water pressure, this is also probably due to the hotel being nearly sold out and again the poor design of the layout. My personal favorite service was the complementary valet service for guests. While this is available at many of the casinos, the valets were very attentive and were willing to assist with baggage.
Being complimentary, I still provided a tip for our valet. While we will dine here in the future because the restaurants are very good , I'm not too sure I would stay here again in the future for the fact that it's just too far from the strip to make it worthwhile. We just refer the strip over this location. My husband and I read that the One Six Lounge is one of the best spots to watch 4th of July fireworks so we called about getting tickets.
They were obviously misinformed. This place is an old school dump that reeks so badly of cigarettes I had to wait outside for our Lyft driver. Never going back here again. Skip to main content. Log in to get trip updates and message other travelers. Great oasis out othe rat race of Vegas.

He then goes about betting with other nutjob rich men on who will win the race. So we have a solid bunch of comedic actors, a solid, if carefree, premise, and a couple of hours of running time. Surely this equals mad success, right? Eh, not really. The movie gets quickly bogged down with a whole bunch of tasteless and often confusing scenes.
The individual performances are pretty fun the Italian version of Mr Bean was neat to watch , but the whole package is not really all that great; it should have been better than it was. Canuck Alert! The whole thing with the cow? Double yuck. Bean is the funniest person alive, but I do not find him amusing at all. I think it needed to be more like Mad World and less like Pootie Tang or Osmosis Jones or any of the countless horrible movies that are out on video right now.
That being said, Rat Race did have its moments. I think Jon Lovitz is a very funny man and pretty much every scene with him and his family cracked me up. Cuba Gooding Jr was funny, but all the Lucys were really obnoxious. Gotta love those crazy backwoods loonies! I liked Breckin Meyer and Amy Smart together, especially when she decides to pay her boyfriend a visit and finds him in flagrante delicto with Charlene and goes completely ballistic on his truck.
That was a great scene. And I absolutely adored John Cleese in this movie. He was perfect as a crazy old millionaire and every time we got to see what he and his millionaire friends were placing bets on, I about lost it. That was pretty funny stuff. So overall, I was disappointed in Rat Race.
But I digress. Rat Race. Eh, if you feel the spirit move you, check it out. I identified as a rental from the start but now having seen it I would have loved to see some of the visual payoffs on the big screen. Rat Race does come up short, however, on star power, at least compared to its distinguished predecessor. Rat Race feels less like an early aughts movie than a very late s movie. Yes, Smash Mouth. If there is a moment in American cinema, or cinema as a whole, that is more sublime and artful than Cuba Gooding Jr.
Also, I am certain that it does not exist. What better way to forget recent events than by watching a solid, at times explosively funny, sneakily satirical popular favorite about an eccentric, sadistic billionaire hotel mogul named Donald who pits a bunch of desperate Americans against each other, all for the benefit of his own bottom line and his greedy, debauched billionaire cronies?
