I hope filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has thick skin. His new film The Adventures of Shark Boy & Lava Girl in 3D is being savaged by the critics. ( has a full slate of critiques here.) One odd think I've noticed about the film is that Shark Boy and Lava Girl are both played by actors whose first names are Taylor. Was this happenstance, or some weird desire on the part of Rodriguez? Of course this is a film based on ideas from his son Racer, so it wouldn't surprise me if the latter is the case. What kind of person in their right mind would name their kid Racer? His other children have the equally odd names of Rocket and Rebel.
