Let's play a Game.  Read through the following paragraphs and count the reasons why this movie will be terrible.


LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Speedy Gonzales is taking his folk-hero status, incredible speed and signature red kerchief to the big screen, with help from George Lopez.

The comedian is attached to provide the voice of the fastest mouse in all Mexico for a politically correct live-action/CG hybrid feature set up at New Line Cinema.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

I can't imagine George Lopez as the voice of Speedy Gonzales. Let alone the fact their making a movie version of that. What'll they base their next movie off of Quick Draw Mcgraw?

I don't have anything against George Lopez, but that has gotta be the one of the dumber ideas for a movie yet (at least they got their idea from a cartoon, and not a board game though!)

They're also updating the character to make him "Not racist".  I've still never understood what was so racist about Speedy - yeah, he's a stereotype, but it's not really a negative one and he was always the hero.  Maybe the side characters (who don't even appear in all the cartoons anyway) I could understand. 

Whatever.  The character is really popular in Mexico and South America, from my understanding, so it appears to be basically something that bothers Americans, not hispanic people in general.

Oh yes, and George Lopez is a terrible choice for Speedy.  Sorry, I think he can be funny, but his voice will never fit any incarnation of the character.

How about a Slowpoke Rodriguez film!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
