This is a comedy spoof of Van Damme's 'Hard Target' and Ice-T's 'Surviving The Game'. It takes an ethnic con-artist and gives him a chance to win $50,000 if he makes it to the end of the race. The twist the plot follows is someone is hunting him for sport. Once this is realized by our main character, he's got to find a way to stop this and save his own life at the same time.
Using John Leguizamo as the main character offers a bit of crude slapstick comedy that does present very funny episodes during the movie. For some the plot slows down and the rugged humor is a little too childish. What would you expect from a spoof? We're not trying to recreate a cinematic masterpiece in all seriousness, but the point is well argued that there could have been more development in the script and screenplay.
The cast was well chosen for the picture and this is definitely something for the college cult classic movie watchers to incorporate in to their stash as the years go by for good laughs and an occasional throw pillow moment. The picture is truly not for those who don't enjoy simple humor antics that parody childish home behavior.
This movie is definitely worth renting once or twice for viewing with a good crowd of friends.
