Synopsis

Star racecar Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) 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 (Michael Caine) and the stunning spy-in-training Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer). -- (C) Disney

Review

So when reviewing a children's movie you can only do so with your kid in tow.  My advise pull up your favorite blanket, bowl of popcorn, and sit down for a family night that everyone in the family can enjoy.  In the realm of sequel's most fall short, however this movie already has a loyal and indiscriminating following.  As a fan of the first movie I was looking forward to a quiet night with my old friend Mater and the gang of Radiator Springs.  The animation in this movie was well done.  It is comforting to have the returning voices while the new ones only add to the adult enjoyment. This movie was really entertaining.  The plot was fun and easy to follow.  You will laugh plenty and your kid(s) will too.  There are a few slow moments but remember this is a children's movie.  The fun is in the "detail" while its full of play on "wheels", I mean words.  All in all it's a good movie on its own while being better than average for a sequel. You may only watch it once or over and over, but this is a must see for every parent and a should see for everyone!
