I swear, I can't get this tune out of my head...


And the saddest thing is that I've never even seen an original ep. My hubby is dying to go to this movie and now I am too...

(warning: may cause seizures. Seriously. And a wish to go out and run around the street making car noises. Yep. The neighbors are now really scared of me.)

My eyeball test on the trailer and other collateral makes me believe this will be a bad movie. John Goodman mixed with too much green screen.

No. Wait. Not "bad."

Just out of my demographic.

OK. Now I feel better.

Somehow I predict seizures in my future. My daughters are very excited to see this movie.

Wait...unless YOU want to take them, Sheryl. Please? I'll throw in the popcorn for free.

Then, try this one... Race Car Driver (lyrics are suggestive)

CGI overload. It can either be super super cool and a video gamers' wet dream, or bad. I was never really a fan of Speed Racer when I was a kid so this one is an iffy to begin.

oh, we are SO buying the video game... used, of course!


the movie tickets should come with a free shot of anti-nausea medication, I figure...

My son wants to see it, but no way am I going with him.

One, the actor looks like Jack Black when he wears the helmet.

Why does he have the McD's logo on his helmet?

I wouldn't watch the cartoon when I was a kid because they sucked.

The movie looks worse than the cartoons.

My kids want to see it too. (and the older one is desperate to see Indiana Jones movie and Iron Man).

I think I will be seeing a lot of movies this summer.
