Those of you who were waiting to see Mike Myers' latest on DVD, your wait is over... unfortunately. You may want to wait a little bit longer, perhaps until it can be taken in pill form. Because while there are a few truly funny bits in the movie, and the cast of Daily Show, Colbert Report and Conan O'Brien veterans is impressive, most of the movie is Mike Myers making anatomical or scatological puns, explaining them to the audience, and then giggling like a schoolgirl. However, if that kind of thing is your bag, baby, then this two-disc DVD set should be a treat for you, because it's chock-full of extras, including some interesting featurettes and a ton of deleted scenes and outtakes, most of which make the jokes that made the cut look like comedy gold.
I have a confession. I actually start to really like Speed Racer towards the end. It's tough to get into it at first, because the opening race is broken up by like 20 flashbacks to Speed as a little boy, and the next half-hour after the race is about contract negotiations. Also, the bright colors and the fake backgrounds and all the little kids running around make you feel like you're watching a cross between Spy Kids 3-D and Lazytown. But by the time you get to the end, everybody starts swearing a lot more, and everyone's motivations are a lot clearer, and you're a lot more emotionally invested in the action. (I also realized that the cartoon-y filmmaking style was actually pretty darn faithful to the original series' animation.) So I was pretty happy going into the extras for this DVD, but once I realized that there was no commentary track and only two features, I was kinda disappointed again.
