Rat Race 2001
A criminally underused John Cleese plays Donald Sinclair, an eccentric billionaire who's devised a new way to entertain highrollers at his Las Vegas hotel. Instead of decks of cards or spinning wheels, the game involves setting a group of randomly selected visitors to the hotel on a race to find $2 million that is stowed away in a train station locker in New Mexico. There aren't any rules, and the participants -- which include a guileless foreigner (Rowan Atkinson), a straightlaced attorney (Breckin Meyer), a disgraced football referee (Cuba Gooding Jr.), a scam artist team of brothers (Seth Green and Vince Vieluf), a mother and daughter meeting for the first time after 27 years (Whoopi Goldberg and Lanei Chapman), and a vacationing family (led by Jon Lovitz) -- have no idea that every step they take is being monitored remotely. Of course, all sorts of wacky hijinks ensue, ranging from a bus of crazed Lucille Ball fans to a talking cow dragged about by a hot air balloon.
