Don't tell the kids, but Santa Claus isn't real and Pixar is fallible.
July 22, 2011
It is all quite jolly and fast-paced, a feast for the eyes, but there's not much for the mind or the heart.
July 21, 2011
Not much engine-power here.

Sweet turbo mother of fuel injections, what is this?
July 19, 2011
Time, perhaps, for the franchise to be towed off to the scrapyard. Sorry, Pixar.
June 24, 2011
It's an example of what a sequel should, or at least can, be.

Cars 2 is marginally better than its predecessor, but the same problem still remains: Cars just aren't very interesting as anthropomorphic animation vehicles (pun intended).
June 24, 2011
This is one Pixar film where you really do feel the length as keenly as the merchandising push.
June 24, 2011
...by Pixar's outrageous standards of Oscar shoo-in virtuosity, this sequel is a disappointment at best.
June 24, 2011
Larry the Cable Guy has helped make Mater one of Pixar's sweetest creations. He just happens to reside in the studio's least-magical franchise.
June 24, 2011
Not that Cars 2 is an actively bad animated film. It's just sort of an average animated film.
June 24, 2011
Unlike most Pixar fare, this isn't a movie you can imagine many adults wanting to see without their children in tow.
June 24, 2011
Although it would be unfair to label Cars 2 as unwatchable, it is surprisingly tedious in parts and not as satisfying as one might expect.
June 24, 2011
Someone must like Mater, who's already had his own spinoff TV show. Just as someone must like Larry the Cable Guy, who voices him. But that someone isn't me, and if it isn't you, you're in for one very long matinee.
June 24, 2011
As lovable as Mater is, let's face it: A little bit of Larry the Cable Guy goes a long way.
June 24, 2011
They said it couldn't be done. But Pixar proved the yaysayers wrong when it made its first bad movie, "Cars." Now it has worsted itself with the even more awful "Cars 2."
June 24, 2011
Lasseter and his team's pitch-perfect way with genre cliches revs up the espionage subplot.
June 24, 2011
It's a worthwhile diversion... but let's hope that Lasseter and friends soon return to the emotional ambition that has made Pixar such a reliable brand to date.
June 23, 2011
Cars 2 demonstrates that not every hit movie merits a sequel.
June 23, 2011
"Cars 2" teaches gentle kid-friendly lessons about the importance of friendship and being yourself and introduces some great new characters in its parallel spy drama and auto racing plots.
