Donald P. Sinclair (John Cleese) is a billionaire with too much time on his hands.  For fun, he invites other tycoons to his casino, where they play Monopoly with real money.  They are looking for a new high stakes challenge and Sinclair has an elaborate plan. 

 

A number of gold coins are placed in slot machines at the billionaire's casino.  Those (un)lucky players who find them are invited to an interstate heat from Nevada to New Mexico.  Together the men place bets on which contestant will reach their goal first, and more is at stake than a measly $2 million.

 

Rat Race was an overwhelming commercial success, garnering $85.4 million in ticket sales -- nearly twice its production cost.
