    Like all car movies. This has the potential to be a good movie to watch, or an absolute suckfest.

    But a real Carrera GT?

    Just throw some body panels on a Fiero and call it a day. To wreck that much engineering is just dumb.

    Movie people will destroy anything. I understand the Cobra used in Bad Boys was a real cobra. And that's easily available as a kit.

    Retarded. Oh well- if he has the money to spend, let him. Let's just hope it doesn't come out as just a high dollar F&F.

    who knows, that guy orlando something (black guy from mad tv days ago) made an action film. some of you may remember. he plays the rich guy? or something i think eddie griffin is in it too..

    anyway, wtf is he doing destroying something like that? hopefully one day that car will be worth more than the movies total gross.. then he'll want to kick himself in the face.

    You are thinking of Orlando Jones but the only "action" movie I remember him being in was Biker Boyz.

    Biker boys was the best and most accurate movie ever.

    I liked the part when Ice Cube locked up the rear wheel, and swung it around to the right (He's obviously so good that he can lock the wheel up without even using the rear brake)

    It had a T-Rex and a Y2K in it, which is it's only redemption.

    Oh ok.. then it's Torque I'm talking about. Maybe they have been combined into one "Ultrashitmovie" in my mind to save space. A sort of mental mental-defrag if you will.
