Suzanne and I just caught SPEED RACER with our buddy Paul. I honestly have no idea why the critics are being so hard on it. That's the most fun I've had watching a movie in the theater in a long time. It ain't Shakespeare, but it's not trying to be. It's just trying to be a good time and that it was. The little boy and the chimp are laugh-out-load hilarious and steal the movie. And Matthew Fox makes a great, cool Racer X, despite his inexplicably bad reviews.
The critics have pretty much killed the box office for this movie, the #$%*ers, so if you want to see it in the theater, you'd better do it soon. I guarantee you'll like it.
If you don't like SPEED RACER, you don't like fun.
And you should suck it.
