Long DescriptionUK Released DVD/Blu-Ray item. It MAY NOT play on regular US DVD/Blu-Ray player. You may need a multi-region US DVD/Blu-Ray player to play this item. Rat Race ought to be far less enjoyable than, in the end, it is. Studded with C-list stars, it has a heartless and derivative premise: a group of no-hopers racing across country for a stash of money for the amusement of a casino owner (John Cleese) and a group of high rollers who will bet on anything. Yet their adventures along the way are inventive: for example, lost in the desert Cuba Gooding Jr ends up stealing a coach only to find it full of Lucille Ball impersonators who go "Waaah!" in chorus whenever anything goes wrong. Even the slapstick is inventive: director Jerry Airplane Zucker and writer Andy Breckman do interesting things with hot-air balloons, a narcoleptic Rowan Atkinson, emergency organ transporters and Hitler's Mercedes Benz. All of the characters, from Breckin Meyer's smugly careful lawyer to Seth Green's shabby little con man, discover in the end that they have hearts, that some things are more important than money and that sometimes it is the journey that matters. Of course, these are all colossal sentimental clichés and yet the film has a sweet-natured quality that sells them to us. On the DVD: Rat Race is presented with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and Dolby 5:1 sound that delivers all of the snappy dialogue clearly. It comes with generous extras, including a gag reel, the theatrical trailer, an outtake where Seth Green completely fails to keep a straight face, a good-humoured interview with writer and director, a disappointing making-of documentary and some deleted scenes (with a couple that should not be missed). --Roz Kaveney

UPDATE: The upgrade completed at 7:30am. This was a little later than we had hoped but the upgrade went without any mojor issues and everything is back up and running.


We will be offline from about 8pm Pacific time on 10/5/2012 and expect to be back online by 6am on 10/6/2012.

There has been a lot of back end work done to make the database more robust and easier for company owners to use. These changes are substantial to both the database layout and the web interface.

To get all the changes in place we need to start by upgrading the database. This process alone takes several hours. While the database is being upgraded, we will move all of the web page files into place. This only takes a short time.

The site will come back online automatically as soon as the database finishes the automated upgrade sequence. Much of the data will be reformatted and that is what takes the builk of the time for this process.

Most users won't see any major change. The company block under each product will look a little different. Company owners and people using our site for automation will see drastic changes.

Things will load faster. Updating company information will be easier. Linking from a company to their products will be easier. Validating changes to company entries will be easier. In short, managing and accessing the data will be a lot easier.

It would be nice if this process could happen without taking the site down but that just wouldn't work. So we are doing it during the slowest usage time.

We put an alert link in the menu bar. Did you see this alert? Was it helpful? We will probably improve that alert process in the future as well.
