A couple minutes before the movie started...after torturing us with SIX movie previews and a 20 minute Toy Story short...the lights went dim, and Cars 2 was FINALLY going to start. I looked over at The Little Man, and he was rocking back and forth in his seat chanting..."can't wait, can't wait, can't wait..."
This was one excited little boy!
Here's the thing...I've been spoiled by you Pixar. I'm used to these animated movies having something for the grown up as well as the kiddo. (Think Wall E, and Up) This one...not so much:/ A little too much potty humor for my taste, although if you're a four year old boy...it doesn't get much funnier than that.
I did however enjoy Michael Caine's character British Agent Finn McMissile. Fwiw, I could have done with a lot more of him...and a lot less Mater. I think that was the biggest problem with this movie...WAY too much Mater:/
Don't get me wrong...My Little Man LOVED it...and I've no doubt it kicked some major bootay at the box office...I'm just giving you the head's up...if you're not a 4 year old boy...there's not a lot to love.
