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. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell. 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. The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.
Sequels often tend to not be near as good as the originial, but that is not the case for Cars 2. I think this movie was just as good(if not better) than the first. Cars 2 kept our whole family entertained and Mater had us rolling on the floor. My kids have watched the movie many times since it arrived last week and I enjoy watching it just as much as they do!
It is hard to pick a favorite part with this movie. There are so many great clips. I personally like when Mater first gets to Japan - he is hilarious. Evan likes when Mater and Lightening McQueen hang out. I wish I would have known about these recipes when we watched Cars 2 at home for the first time.
Evan also likes Toy Story and was excited to see the bonus feature short - Toy Story "Hawaiian Vacation". There is also another short Cars Toon - "Air Mater" that had us laughing.
