[Talking about Sinclair and his idea for them competing in the "race"]
It's some sort of joke. It has to be.
What kind of jackass just gives away $2 million?
Maybe it's a publicity stunt.
What kind of publicity? He swore us all to secrecy.
Maybe it's a secret publicity stunt.
A *secret* publicity stunt?

I have seen Rat Race about 50 times, and it still packs the same punch for me that it did on view number 1. I absolutely love the stellar cast, which is highlighted by the performances of Rowan Atkinson, John Lovitz, and Whoopi Goldberg. Bringing many comedy stars together under one roof hasn't been done often enough. It did happen in Mars Attacks, which turned out to be a total waste of time and was and absolutely horrible movie. In this case however, the actors/actresses aren't awkwardly stuck into their roles, they all sink into very unique characters who each have a story to tell. Rat Race is a hilarious comedy that everyone should see, I have never met anyone who didn't like it. If you have nothing to do on a Saturday Night, you will enjoy this one for sure!
