    Overheated, underdone farce. Race for the exit. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The funniest film to come along since "South Park," and one that succeeds in a more difficult and satisfying way. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    Hits its silly stride early and never shifts into a higher gear. show more

    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. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Somnambulistic pacing, kerplunkingly unfunny jokes, and mugging thespians making fools of themselves. Truly torturous spectacle. show more

    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. show more

    Zucker gives the movie an ebullient spirit, but he also keeps everything at the same loud pitch throughout. show more
