Cars 2 (U)

The Return of The Incredibles; Finding Nemo Again; Wall-E Strikes Back... All sequels to Pixar films that make more sense then a second spin for John Lasseter's automotive pet project.

But Cars has sold a ton of toys. This time, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) travels to the World Grand Prix, only for pick-up truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) – in an unusually bolted-on conceit for Pixar – to get dragged into vehicular espionage by spy-car Finn McMissile (Michael Caine). While it looks glorious, there's something forced about this all-car world. It's fun but repetitive: Puss in Boots and Kung Fu Panda 2 are better, when you'd expect Pixar to be in pole position.
