"I wish I had seen Showgirls."
1 stars

Race the Sun, lordy, lordy. What am I gonna say? I mean without reverting to scathing sarcasm?

Hmm... it sucks when you can't get into a big-assed movie like "Showgirls", eh? Then you're stuck with a movie like "Race The Sun". I mean it.

Well, for one thing, I had no idea who would want to watch this movie. I mean, obviously them college frat kids and those horny adults and teens wouldn't watch this movie (granted they have Halle Berry, but it's not a role for the common fanboy). And obviously it ain't for them lil kids. There's no fluffy bunnies n' shit like that (granted they have a very fat kid which looks like a cute hippo, but I mean... it's a kid -- that's FAT). The closest demographic it'd reach are those crazy fangirls, who would love seeing young Casey Affleck strut his stuff in that stupid little solar powered car o' his.

I heard this was a true story or something. Well, whoop-de-doo. Cinema is not the place for a story like this. A movie like that belongs on like, Hawaiian TV or something like that. "Honolulu Channel 13 presents the primetime special: 'Race the Sun: The Story of a Solar Powered car, and the fucked up class who drived it"

And hey, I wouldn't be a proper reviewer if I didn't point out it's advantages... uh... hmm... uhm.... advantage... hmmm... see it for... the popcorn? No, that's not good... uh... Well, to you'll get to see... Lots of chinese folk parading about as Hawaiians.

SUCK THE SUN RACED!!! er... ah nevermind.
