Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and we all know what that means around here! It's Theater Thursday!
This week's featured movie is Rat Race

Rat Race features a star studded cast including everyone from Whoppi Goldberg, Cuba Gooding Jr., to Seth Green and Jon Lovitz. And of course, who could forget... it includes Mr. Bean! 

Rat Race takes us from the the strip in Las Vegas to Silver City, New Mexico. When a group of high rolling billionaires get bored with the regular gambling techniques, Donald Sinclair (John Cleese) gets six lucky and random people together and tells them that there's 2 million dollars sitting in a locker in Silver City. The first person to get there wins it. No strings attached. 

At first the contestants don't believe it but when they realize it's on the up and up they begin to go for it in full gear. In the meantime the high rollers are hanging out in Vegas watching their every move by tracking them on a map and with first hand accounts of people on the ground watching. What they don't take into account is the human factor that anything can happen! 

So who will make it to the locker in Silver City first? And what will happen to the money and everyone who's been chasing after it? Well, go watch it and find out!

Rat Race is such a fun movie! The cast is awesome. I'm not even sure who my favorite actor is in that movie because they all do such a fantastic job and their characters are SO funny!

I thought it was funny; I LOVE pretty much anything that Rowan Atkinson is in! Have you ever seen his stand-up video? I almost peed myself.

Love me some Mr. Bean! I know he doesn't play Mr. Bean in this movie, but that guy still cracks me up. Love this movie!

Although I used to have a major crush on Seth Green.
