RAT RACE (2000)

Song: ‘All Star’ by Smash Mouth
Dance: Breakdancing, exaggerated hand clapping and jumping up and down on the spot.

After a 100 minutes of all-star silliness – Rowan Atkinson as a narcoleptic wannaBean, John Cleese as a power mad billionaire with super shiny teeth – Jerry Zucker’s take on It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World descends into unfitting sentimentality with a rendition ‘All Star’ by early noughties pop rockers Smash Mouth. It’s for a Live Aid-alike charity concert, and as the cast goof off for the crowd, the donated cash tally goes higher and higher and higher. Worth a watch if only to see on-form Cuba Gooding Jr. showing off his badass breakdancing moves and Jon Lovitz doing the worst harmonica solo of all time.
