Cars 2 takes us on another saga with Lightning McQueen and his best friend Tow Mater as they enter the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. In this James Bond-like film, Tow Mater gets to take the lead role as he gets caught up in an adventure of his own. Filled with nifty gadgets and spyware, Cars 2 takes us on an exciting journey in which “Mater” helps defeat a villain attempting to take over the world. Because of its espionage theme, the plot definitely went over the heads of my four-year old and two-year old. Cars 2 was more fun for my husband and me, though a large bucket of popcorn and box of junior mints made it an instant hit with my kids. Cars 2 gets four stars, and I recommend it to families with children ages 8 and up.
