Rat Race

Question: I remember a couple of scenes that were not in the version I just watched. One was when the girl had to poop out of the car window. I remember her screaming at her dad instead of speaking calmly. I also kind of remember the highway girl showing her full front instead of just side-boob. I'm not positive about the second, but I distinctly remember the first. Was this deleted or am I just imagining it?

Chosen answer: You're imagining the frontal boobs. I have the DVD and none show this as a deleted scene or otherwise cut out of the movie.

Answer: You were probably watching the movie on television. It's been formatted/edited to fit the usual two-hour time slot for the network. Kids might be watching it too.

Answer: The girl screaming at her father was in the version I saw, however.

Brian Katcher

Chosen answer: That would be "In the Hall of the Mountain King". It is the final movement of Edvard Grieg's classical work, Peer Gynt Suite No. 1.

Question: At the end, who are the band that play. I have a feeling it's Smash Mouth or Smashing Pumpkins. Someone care to tell?

Answer: It's Smash Mouth, as stated in the movie.

Question: What happened with the key that the brothers were trying to copy. How did they know that the guy made a copy for himself?

Answer: They only had blanks - the non-cut keys that are used to make keys. So when they saw those, they knew that the guy had their key.

Question: In the "Ricky Bus" deleted scene on the DVD, can anyone work out what the guys on the bus are saying?

Answer: They say, in turn: "Hello, Ladies!" "We saw you runnin' on the highway" "Without a chaperone" "Somebody has some s'plainin' to do".

Other mistake: When Rowan Atkinson is riding in the train, near the end of the film, he is looking out the window. He is looking forward, then quickly looks backwards. He does this several times in a row, as if trying to see things quickly as the train passes them. But, when the camera pulls back, Rowan's back is facing the direction the train is moving, thus he was looking the wrong way! You can tell by the way the scenery is moving as you look through the window. (01:28:05)
