Neil Dunsmoresaid on Saturday, July 16, 2011 5:53:38 PMIf this was a Dreamworks film, I would have liked this to some degree, but no, this is Pixar and my expectations for them are higher, and yes, I do admit I feel shallow for thinking this way. The humor even felt Dreamworks-ish. They had a "Your Mom" joke in it for god's sake! I thought Pixar was above that!
Daddy Guysaid on Wednesday, June 29, 2011 11:30:37 PMI do not agree. I enjoyed this movie as fun, light entertainment worthy of the Pixar name. It seems Mr. Roeper cannot fairly evaluate this movie since he simply does not like the idea of talking animated cars. I also thought Mater was a great choice as the main protagonist as he is the most likable character in both movies.
Jasonsaid on Monday, June 27, 2011 11:19:46 PMActually, I thought C+ was very generous. I really did not like this movie. The story is really two stories that were not really told well. The first movie was at least about cars... and what cars do best which is to drive/race. Seems like this movie touched on racing and then went off on tangents for the Spy Game story. This movie is probably the worse Pixar Movie yet. You know it is bad when the Toy Story Short is actually better than the entire feature film. J
Chrissaid on Sunday, June 26, 2011 10:32:47 PMI found the lines to be much more childish, especially in the beginning. There did seem to be an agenda against big oil and the need for alternative energy. I understand children are the future, but this is something that needs to be handled now and handled by adults. Keep adult topics out of kid movies
