Saturday morning I was able to take my daughter to see the new Cars 2 movie at Muvico in downtown West Palm Beach. Don’t forget to enter my Cars 2 Giveaway Prize Pack for some awesome goodies.We were super excited to be able to go. There was a large line, but since I was given passes, I was able to go right in. How exciting! Another surprise, was that we were going to see it in 3D! Savannah really didn’t know what that meant, but she liked getting the glasses.
The theater was filled with anxious children and media types. Thank goodness for all the other children. Savannah got up and down and moved and stood and had 2 or, was it 3, potty breaks. I was tired by the end of the movie.
I was a little dissapointed in the new Cars 2 movie. It wasn’t really for young children, which doesn’t mean it’s not a great movie. There was a lot of talk of “getting rid of” or “taking out” certain cars and even “killing” McQueen.There was fast action and lots of gun fire and loud noises. This doesn’t sit well with my 3 year old. Now my 10 year old son will love it, I’m sure!
If I had to choose between Cars and Cars 2 for the entire family, I would choose the original Cars. The older children will love Cars 2, though.
Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of 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 (voice of Michael Caine) and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell (voice of Emily Mortimer). 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.
