From the creators of CARS and TOY STORY 3 comes a new, laugh-out-loud, heartwarming adventure geared for the entire family. Star race car Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship on the road from Radiator Springs to exciting new places when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world's fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage! Experience all the fast-paced fun with an "all-car" cast -- plus enjoy two hilarious short films, "Air Mater" and "Hawaiian Vacation." It's turbocharged action and thrills and "even better than before," raves Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.

I had a very unusual experience seeing this movie in theaters.
I watched it, I had a great time, I laughed, cheered, was thrilled, and the moment the credits started to roll the people in the row behind me IMMEDIATELY started spouting off how much they HATED it. I was flabbergasted. I was sorely tempted to turn around and ask them if we even just saw the same movie? How could anyone hate something that's so much FUN?!
But after thinking about it, I could see actually why they didn't get into it. Cars 2 is the first Pixar movie where you really have to 'get the joke' of the premise, or the whole thing falls apart like a house of cards. What this movie is, is the best James Bond movie of the last 15 years (not counting Casino Royale which transcends Bond movies to be just a great spy movie), with a bit of The Accidental Spy thrown in.
I LOVE Bond movies. The crazy opening sequences, the insane gadgets, the quippy lines. And Cars 2 hit pitch perfect...
I'll stay out of the argument about what it's appropriate to show your kids, as I only allowed to watch the Disney Channel as a kid and eagerly looked forward to staying with a babysitter so I could watch the "cool" cartoons the other kids watched like. I also happen to think that no one should show something to their kids just because it's by Disney/Pixar and rated G, but I digress.
I watched this film right after the first a few days ago, and I'm again impressed by it in absolutely every way. Pixar managed to keep the world and characters from the first film, and create a film with a COMPLETELY different theme and feel. For anyone who thought the first Cars film was too slow, there's more action in the first half hour of this film than the whole of the first Cars combined. The jokes, the camera-work, the visual fidelity (WAAAAY more color this time around), and the variety of characters and settings have all been cranked way up to 11. There isn't really much of a...
This is a good movie but not what I expected as the follow up to the original Cars. I watched both with my 4 year old (first time seeing them for both of us). My daughter loved Cars and I did too. Really entertaining movie with fun and funny characters with some positive messages in it. The "darkest" character being Chic Hicks who is simply a self centered schmuck. I had no qualms about letting her watch this.
Although Cars 2 is also rated "G" it is in stark contrast to it's predecessor. It has a dark feel to it and clearly inspired by "James Bond" movies. It includes a lot of gun violence and the bad guys are instructed to "kill him! And some characters are even killed off. There is also some mild name calling. Don't get me wrong, as an adult, I thought it was entertaining and I've even watched it more than once. Just know going in that it is definitely more "mature" than the first. Had I know beforehand, I likely would have put...
