Illustration for article titled Speed Racer Sucked, Took In Less Than $20 Million On Opening Weekend

So we hear Speed Racer kind of sucked, which despite our fervent wishes otherwise, we kind of guessed after watching those damned trailers. In fact, depending on which studio numbers you used, came in either in 2nd place or 3rd place this past weekend, behind the juggernaut that is Iron Man and the silly romantic comedy What Happens In Vegas. Anyone care to guess exactly why the movie sucked? Was it the cartoon-ish graphics? Was it Chim-Chim? Was it — gasp — Christina Ricci? Was it the over-priced cost of $160 million to develop the movie — an amount that allowed the Wachowski brothers to spend more time playing and less time directing? [Deadline Hollywood Daily]
