Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Rat Race
—one of the best comedies of its decade, WOW! Bravo! and Laugh-Out-Loud-Funny—uses the talents of Breckin Meyer, Cuba Gooding Jr., Seth Green, Gloria Allred, Jon Lovitz, and Rowan Atkinson to create an onscreen riot of hilarity. An absolute must for the home video library.
