Mommisaurus Movie Review: B+
We all enjoyed the movie very much but it was NOT a true continuation of Cars 1. The nostalgic, wistful feeling of the first movie is not present in this one and I have to say I think it was smart not to try and bring it back. I don't think it really could have been done with equal success so I was relieved to see this episode go in an entirely different direction. The best friend sappiness between McQueen and Mater is the only part that I thought was grossly overdone. There is no memorable soundtrack, which I think is disappointing because of how AWESOME it was in the last movie. The action was good and there was enough witty humor to make it enjoyable for adults. We will be purchasing the DVD when it comes out and I am sure it will be watched over and over and over again much like Finding Nemo, Bolt and Megamind.
About halfway through the film, Lil' Bit was fed up with sitting still. He stood up and was peering between 2 seats of the next row completely fixated on the screen. It was only a few moments before he started screeching and kicking his feet while hitting the back of the seats. He had managed to smash his head through the opening and couldn't pull it back out. I had to pick him up, sliding his head free over the top of the chairs and then console him as he cried holding his ears. It was pitiful and thankfully short lived. He was quickly focused again on the movie and forgot all about his ears and the trauma of being trapped in between the seats.
Sometimes, I think we are more entertaining than the movies we go to see.
