Rat Race (2001) - Synopsis
The only rule in this race is that there are no rules
In an effort to satisfy the gambling whims of his wealthiest high rollers -- a group that will bet on anything -- eccentric Las Vegas casino tycoon Donald Sinclair has created a new wagering experience.
He randomly places six special gold coins in slot machines in his casino. The winners of these coins, six ordinary Vegas "low rollers," soon discover that there could be an even bigger payoff at stake.
Sinclair has placed $2 million in a duffel bag in a train station locker hundreds of miles away in Silver City, New Mexico. The game is simple. He gives them all keys to the locker - replete with hidden transmitters -- and the first one to open it gets to keeps the money. What they don't know is that Sinclair and his wealthy patrons are tracking their every move -- like a pack of lab rats -- and betting on the outcome.
As the racers embark on their easy money road race adventure, they follow one simple rule: There are no rules.
