The RT Review Revue: What Happens in Speed Racer, Stays in Speed Racer

Your RT editors weigh in on the weekend in movies.

by | May 8, 2008 | Comments

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! The RT Review Revue is here to talk about this week’s pair o’ flicks: What Happens in Vegas (AKA Cameron vs. Ashton) and Speed Racer (better known as The Wachowskis Blow Minds, Part II). Click here to watch.

We’ll start with the movie where a guy pees into a sink. Charmers Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz star in What Happens in Vegas as a mismatched couple who accidentally get married in Sin City and spend 90 minutes trying to trick each other into divorce. Date night, anyone? Nothing says “safe first date” like a movie about strangers getting hitched!

Then again, if you check out What Happens In Romantic Comedyland this weekend you might miss out on Speed Racer, the Wachowski brothers’ (…or is it siblings, we ask?) high energy live action-anime mashup based on the classic ‘toon about a race car driver named Speed (Emile Hirsch), his girlfriend Trixie (Christina Ricci), and his racing-obsessed family (Susan Sarandon, John Goodman, scene stealer Paulie Litt, and a chimpanzee). Critics look split on this one — but it does feature a buffed out, leatherclad Matthew Fox as the mysterious Racer X. To borrow a line from the trailer, “Hubba hubba.”


Buckled up this week (at the wheel, on the passenger side, and sitting in the middle of the empty backseat reminiscing on that one time Carrie Underwood touched his arm, respectively) are RT editor in chief Matt Atchity, Senior Editor Jen Yamato, and special guest Dave Chung.

Watch this week’s video right here. (You can also download in Quicktime.)

What do you think? Will you be watching What Happens in Vegas, Speed Racer, or queuing up again to see Iron Man??
