While it was not expected to be a very popular movie, Cars has become one of the most financially successful Disney/Pixar movies, prompting the company to produce a sequel that feels a lot like A Man Called Flintstone.

Star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.

    I went last night to see Cars 2 with my 3 year old and he really liked it. He started squirming partway through and wanted to get up a bit, but it wasn’t really because it was boring. I really wish that Lightning McQueen had factored more in the overall movie though. Mater is funny and all, but I think he works best as the funny sidekick, not the main focus of the movie. But the thing that Disney/Pixar knows how to do well and what I think they’re counting on, we stopped after the movie at Wal-Mart and I bought the kid two cars to play with, Finn McMissile and Holly Shiftwell.

    I first saw Cars (the first one) at the theaters before I ever had kids and I only thought it was okay but after having kids and having to watch it a lot more, it started getting funnier the more I watched it, and the music got to me and I started really liking it. I hope that happens with this movie.

    Watched it with the family. Was pretty happy with it myself but that may be because I was distracted with what they were going to ‘cars-ize’ next. It was a very simple and over done story but after living with 4 younger siblings and watching some movies until the dvd melted… I have certainly seen worse versions of the hurting your friend for acting like themselves and embarrassing you story.
    I would also have liked to see Lightning more in the movie, but if I wanted to see Owen Wilson play a spy I suppose I could watch I-Spy.
