Rat Race is the wacky Paramount comedy of people racing each other for a two-million-dollar prize. The studio's Rat Race DVD follows along in the rollicking spirit of the film by including a bunch of humorous special features that keeps the humor rolling -- or racing -- along well after the movie is over. Among the comedic talent in Rat Race are Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Lovitz, John Cleese, and Rowan Atkinson. Cuba Gooding, Jr., Seth Green, and Amy Smart also star in this story of what folks will do for money. The film is presented in a widescreen format especially enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs, and in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround sound. Among the special features are a commentary track by director Jerry Zucker and writer Andy Breckman, a "making of" documentary, and outtake section. The zany extras include a gag reel, a sequence called "The Giggles" that shows Seth Green and others continually breaking up while trying to get one particular scene done, and a unique feature called "Jerry and Andy Call the Actors." This is a series of humorous phone calls from Zucker and Breckman to many of the film's participants.
