I heard they were going to do this...hope it's good.

I wouldn't mind at all if they make a movie from this property. I used to love me some Carmen Sandiego.

That being said, I don't care for Jennifer Lopez doing it. I mean she'd look the part well, but as far as acting goes, she's not that great and I don't see her pulling off that role really. Then again, if it stays true to form, you rarely really see Carmen Sandiego herself.

Glad to know there's a man that sees that about her. I really don't go see her movies at all. If she produces it...then that's okay but if she's in it..I would be tempted to stay away from it.

Yeah, I don't much care for her. I won't totally avoid her movies, but if she's a lead, I don't have high hopes for the movie. Hell, she's not even that hot, so I'm not sure why she gets by with continuing to do movies.
