I just watched the movie Cars ~ Cars2 Giveaway

5 Flares 5 Flares ×

I know. Just now? Am I behind the times? I figured since my baby’s first (and most favorite) word was “Car,” I should at least check out this animated flick! So hubby and I rented it from Netflix and had a Parent’s Movie Night (baby still does not watch TV).

I admit – it was a cute movie with a moral about friendship and loyalty. I wish they hadn’t used some of the slightly suggestive and/or potty humor though. But overall, enjoyable to watch!

Now, Cars 2 is racing into theatres everywhere on June 24th! Here’s a synopsis:

When star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix, Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage!

If your kids can’t get enough of the Cars characters, Disney/Pixar has created an awesome activity pack for kids! Mazes, Soap Box Dragster Activities, T-shirt Designs, a Radiator Springs Play Set and much, much more! All of these family activities can be found here. You can even “Like” CARS 2 on Facebook.

PLUUUUUUSSSSS: I’m hosting a reader giveaway of some Cars 2 Swag!

- CARS 2 t-shirt in youth sizes of S, M, L, XL

- CARS 2 set of 3 bumper tickets

- CARS 2 temporary tattoo sheet (2 per winner)

- CARS 2 puzzle

I’ve watched Cars probably 20 times with my two little grandsons. I loved it the first few times, but honestly I’m ready to move on to a new movie. Unfortunately the boys don’t agree.
I do love the characters though. Our favorite is Mater.

Over all I really like Cars and the message – kind of redemption. But the innuendos have been more noticeable to me lately. My son does LOVE the characters and plays with his Cars all the time.

Leah WalkerJune 16, 2011 - 10:27 pm

We’ve seen Cars, they’ve been playing it on Disney channel quite a bit lately too, and we love it. My daughter is even way into cars, period, so she likes it too. It’s super cute and I can’t wait to see number two.

It’s nice to have a wholesome movie for my son to watch-and it’s funny and entertaining enough for us parents to watch it as well. It’s the best of both worlds and we can wait to see Cars 2 when it comes out!

I haven’t seen Cars – I actually read a review that said it had a surprising amount of innuendo for a Pixar film, which was disappointing since I love most of the other ones. Maybe soon I’ll check it out myself – my nephew is obsessed with it, and he’s coming to visit this summer. I know if I win this giveaway, he will be one happy little boy! ;)

My two year old daughter LOVES Cars. Cars is to her what Finding Nemo was to my 7 year old daughter at that age. We all love the movie. I think the characters are great, funny, charming and down to earth (well most of them : ) As an adult I really did laugh out loud quite often during Cars I think it is equally as enjoyable for adults as it is for kids.

VanessaJune 14, 2011 - 6:33 pm

My boys (now 5 and 2) watch Cars at least once a week. It’s been a staple in our home for the last 3 years. They have Cars toys and play out the movie all the time!
