Reviews with a Mug Brownie: Rat Race

Published February 5, 2013 by Britt

From Wikipedia

Plot: An all-star comedy cast brings laughs from start to finish when a casino tycoon gives six money-crazed contestants the chance to win $2 million in a race from Las Vegas to New Mexico. Who will win this dash for cash is anybody’s guess, but one thing is for sure- it’s going to be a hilarious ride.

From the back of the DVD.

My turn!!! My mom loves this movie. It’s one of her favorites of all time and she was upset I hadn’t seen it. So she forced me to watch it.

And it was really, really funny. Everyone raves about The Hangover, which I kind of thought was stupid (I prefer Pitch Perfect and 21 Jump Street), and this was funnier than that. The stuff they do is so out there but just so great that I seriously just couldn’t handle it. You have Whoopi Goldberg, who should have bought a squirrel, Cuba Gooding Jr. driving a bus full of I Love Lucy cosplayers, Breckin Meyer learning never to cheat on a helicopter pilot, then Seth Green bopping around and wrecking cars left and right, Jon Lovitz getting stuck with Nazis, and Rowan Atkinson being… Rowan Atkinson.

There’s one thing about movies like this is that a basic plot like a road trip movie can go many different strange places and can end up as stupid/cliche or hysterical.  This was one of those movies, and the things they did with it were so creative and ridiculous to the point where it really was a good movie. I never saw anything coming until it actually was happening then and there. Some of the jokes were in poor taste, but a lot of the funniest ones are.

Also, Smashmouth.

Overall, very good movie, these guys are great.

Five stars.

Short review tonight… I’m distracted. XD And last review from the string of reviews I’ve done the past few days… I have stories!!!
