A.O. Scott
The New York Times
It lumbers from one scene to the next with the stop-and-start mistiming generally seen in the outtakes shown at the end of the "Cannonball Run" movies, which this picture resembles in spirit. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
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. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
A strong ending might have obscured the mediocrity in the writing, or at least diverted us, but the ending is sentimental where it needed to be hard-edged and comically merciless. For a film about people hurtling forward, Rat Race is pretty pedestrian. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
This ripoff, directed by Jerry Zucker, has a few funny moments, but it's a sad sad sad sad example of what Hollywood is currently serving up -- and what audiences are swallowing -- as summer entertainment. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Atkinson, somehow managing to be simultaneously delicate and broad, can do things with his face that shouldn't be legal. His delighted and delightful Mr. Pollini is a little taste of comic genius. Full Review
