Cars 2 (Pixar, Summer 2011)

oooh! Michael Caine! as a British Spy Car! A very recognizable spy car...Michael Caine!!!!

Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” 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.
Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors

So they dropped the rest of the cast? I'd think the girl car would be in as well.

I'm sure she'll be in it, at least briefly. I gotta imagine Luigi and Guido will be there too.

Not sure if I'm there. Craps IMO is the 2nd worst Pixar film, right behind Crapatouille which are the only 2 I didn't watch in theaters and haven't owned in any home video format.

Re: Cars 2 (Pixar, Summer 2011)

... I do agree with Kal-El's direction, though (although Ratatoille is awesome).

Of all of the Pixar movies to give a sequel to, this one seems least likely to me. Cars is my second least favorite Pixar after A Bug's Life. There are some good moments, but the characters are weak and non descript, there's very little in the movie for adults and the plot is obvious Tom Cruise "brash young man makes good" quest material. The Incredibles would have been a much better choice for a sequel.

On the other hand, I didnt see any way they were going to make a good Toy Story 3, but that may be my favorite of the Toy Story movies.

For whatever reason, Cars is the one Pixar movie I watch if I happen to see it while channel surfing. I really liked it and am looking forward to the Euro version with some nice new cars. I thought the Doc Hollywood plot worked great and old Paul was pretty good.

Paul Newman left some big shoes to fill from the first film, but I think Michael Caine is a great choice, and "Finn McMissile" looks to be a great character.

I like the old school spy theme they've added to it... probably won't see it in theaters but looking forward to it.

Cars is also my least favorite Pixar film along with Nemo but the sequel looks pretty good.

Re: Cars 2 (Pixar, Summer 2011)

The original has grown on me over the years, and when I first heard the sequel would have them going around the world for different races, I was a little excited, but this idea of the "international espionage" thing looks like overkill.

Re: Cars 2 (Pixar, Summer 2011)

Wall-E is the worst Pixar film I've seen (awful), followed by The Incredibles (boring).
Monsters Inc., A Bug's Life, and Cars are some of the best.

Mater-centric? No thanks. I'll rent it, but I think this might be the first Pixar movie I didn't see in the theater.

Re: Cars 2 (Pixar, Summer 2011)

Same here - Cars is my least Fave Pixar film, but from friends who work there, this one is way better than the 1st. Obviously they work there, but they are honest about preferences in the films.

Geez, those are probably my two favorite, although Up, TS2 and TS3 are up there.

I like Cars quite a bit, but I'm not really a fan of the spy motiff they're going for here. Just seems way out there from what I enjoyed about the first movie.

I never seen the first Cars movie, but this trailer had me laughing. Pretty cool.

To each their own, though I am mystified as to how anyone could like Wall-E.

I did like Up though so I was glad to see they hadn't totally lost it.

Pretty sure I've read that too. Not hard to figure out. Toy cars always sell well to boys, put faces on them and it's like printing gold.
