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.

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)

Trivia: In the very beginning of the movie, the two brothers are gambling together. They pull the lever on one of the slot machines and two cows come up. Significant because they have an encounter with cows later in the movie.
