Milka Duno's tremendous bust

My inner Mike Gundy told me this movie featuring a character played by Milkalicious was going to be "Garbage!" Evidently, so did yours.

The summer of 2008 is only two weeks old, and it already has its first flop. Speed Racer, the Wachowski Brothers' kaleidoscopic retelling of the classic cartoon series, got stuck in neutral this weekend, grossing a mere $20.2 million, according to Sunday's estimates — a disastrous sum for a movie that cost well in excess of $100 mil and that Warner Bros. had considered one of its major summer tentpoles.

Looks like IndyCars aren't the only thing she gets into that underperforms. *rimshot* Meanwhile, ESPN The Magazine sent a couple of Rahals to review the flick. Their summaries?

Graham: And when they weren't racing, the dialogue was dull and cheesy. I was drawn into the racing scenes, but they got repetitive. I could hardly sit through the movie. I felt every minute of the two hours.

Bobby: Only highlight for me was that there was nothing about (N-Word) in it.

    The Wachowski Brothers really need to think about trying something different. They're never gonna top the Matrix anyways.

    Well, there goes Graham, throwing the movie under the bus.

    From Cavin's blog :

    Question: Of all the rookie drivers, who best understands and respects the significance and historical value of the Indianapolis 500?

    Answer : EJ Viso acts like it's just another racetrack

    this is the same EJ that pitted in Carpenter's blog.

    As much as Bobby Rahal can grate on me, that quote was classic! :-)
