563 miles. 9 people. $2 million. 1001 problems!

In an ensemble film about easy money, greed, manipulation and bad driving, a Las Vegas casino tycoon entertains his wealthiest high rollers -- a group that will bet on anything -- by pitting six ordinary people against each other in a wild dash for $2 million jammed into a locker hundreds of miles away. The tycoon and his wealthy friends monitor each racer's every move to keep track of their favorites. The only rule in this race is that there are no rules.

Rat Race - Der nackte Wahnsinn
  • a.k.a. Rat Race

Donald Sinclair ist exzentrischer Multimilliardär und Besitzer des größten und extravagantesten Spielkasinos in Las Vegas. Um einige seiner wohlhabendsten Gönner angemessen zu unterhalten, lässt er sich ein Spiel der etwas anderen Art einfallen: Sechs zufällig ausgewählte Personen werden auf den in einem Schließfach in New Mexico deponierten Gewinn in Höhe von Zwei Millionen Dollar angesetzt. Was die Teilnehmer des Spieles “ohne Regeln” aber nicht wissen, ist, dass der Tycoon und seine reichen Freunde eine Wette auf den Ausgang des Rennens abgeschlossen haben und jede ihrer Bewegungen verfolgen, gerade so, als seien sie Laborratten in einer Versuchsanordnung. Getrieben von Gier, Hast und einer Menge Böswilligkeiten, sind die Teilnehmer zu allem bereit, was sie dem verlockenden Cash-Gewinn näher bringen kann. Es ist jedoch nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis sie realisieren, dass sie lediglich Teil jener elitären Wette sind und den Spieß umdrehen.

Donald Sinclair, le propriétaire du plus gros, du plus distingué et du plus excentrique casino de Las Vegas, a élaboré un nouveau concept de jeu pour ses partenaires avides d'argent. L'idée est simple : six équipes de deux personnes concourent pour une cagnotte de deux millions de dollars. De quoi faire rêver les douze participants ! Ces derniers sont prêts à tout pour mettre la main sur les fameux billets verts. L'argent en question se trouve dans un coffre-fort situé à l'autre bout du pays. La première équipe à se rendre sur les lieux remportera le gros lot. Ce que les candidats ne savent pas toutefois, c'est que Donald et ses riches associés parient sur leurs moindres faits et gestes. Une course, c'est bien beau, mais ça manque de piquant. Alors Donald va leur en mettre plein la vue.
