I'm really not sure why the Wachowski brothers didn't just make Speed Racer an animated feature -- there's so much CGI already that the real people look rather lost. And, seriously, what's up with the increasingly Palin-esque names the Racer family gave their kids: Rex, Speed, and then Spritle. (Pops seems to be Pops' legal name -- it's how the process server addresses him.) I imagine kids would like this film, or at least be hypnotized into submission by the colors and motion.
