Movie Summary

John Lasseter

From the creators of Cars comes a new, laugh-out-loud, heart-warming adventure geared for the entire family. Star racecar Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship on the road from Radiator Springs to exciting new places 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! It's turbo-charged action and thrills and "even better than before," raves Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.

    These creations have become like family to Lasseter as well as to each other, and they never fail to make us smile.

    It is not entirely without charm or wit. Directed by John Lasseter (with Brad Lewis credited as co-director) from a script by Ben Queen, Cars 2 lavishes scrupulous imaginative atte...

  • Because Pixar was ignorant to the wishes of Incredibles 2.

    It's bad. Bye.
  • Television needs a PG rating

    I will admit, the movie, in my opinion is okay, actually. It is heartwarming, with great effects, and funny. BUT, there are some negative things about the movie. Like it being rated G for tons of fighting, crashing cars, and explosions, alcoholic drinking ( at least that's what it looks like), etc. I've heard a lot of people saying that they didn't like the fact that Mater the tow truck was the main character in the sequel. But at least give him a chance. And also the fact that, it has spy cars and fighting, yeah I think it should get a PG rating instead. I also think it's kind of embarrassing that cars can do all sorts of things. It's cool, but they can eat, drink, and pee?? What? Oh, well at least they're anthropomorphic...moreless
  • LAME!

    The first one was pretty funny but this one was a train wreck! They focused WAY too much on Mater (the tow truck)
  • This movie was WORSE than the Original!

    Cars made a comeback with its sequel "Cars 2". I have to say after watched it, I was quite disappointed. It was probably Pixar's worst movie. Some of the parts of the film were entertaining, but overall it wasn't a favorite.
