On June 24th CARS 2 raced into the theaters. I haven’t been able to make it to a theater with the kids to see it yet, we’ve been so busy lately, but I have heard that is a really fun movie for both kids and adults.
Here is a brief synopsis of the film.
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.
Going through and watching some of the clips available online has only made my kids even more excited to see the movie. I might have to convince the hubs that we need to take the littles to see this while we are on our trip this weekend. What better way to spend a mini family vacation then with some excitement, laughter and general good times that movies bring.
Also, check to see if your local theater has a movie club online. You can sign up and receive weekly coupons. We all know the cost of everything involved in going to see a movie can be expensive so every little bit helps.
