Cars 2 was more than a little disappointing. While it was visually impressive, it lacked the charm of the original with a contrived and overly complex story line for this type of movie. Our youngest daughter got bored about midway through the film. To me that's a sign that a movie geared towards her age group is not working.
Pixar has made a lot of great films for families and children. They're allowed to have a dud every now and then. I guess the spy motif was designed to entertain us adults, but it just seemed a bit out of reach for some of its intended audience.
Our youngest daughter made the most telling remark when she said, "Well, I guess we won't want to get that one when it comes out on DVD."
