Last night the kids and I sat together and watched the live-action version of Speed Racer. I know it is cheesey, but I really enjoy these movies that are just like the cartoons that inspired them. I'm not looking for world changing...I'm just looking to have fun with my kids.
Anyway, I pointed out that Trixie is played by the same girl who plays Wednesday in The Addams Family: Christina Ricci. After ooh-ing and aah-ing that they'd known she looked familiar, Buttercup asked how old the actress was when she filmed this movie. I responded that I thought Christina Ricci was about 30 or so. She paused and responded with, "Wow, those make-up artists did a good job." Really? "Yeah, you can't even tell she's so old...she looks young!" Um, okay.
