I thought it would be fun to have a place to discuss the movie without ruining it for anyone who has not seen it yet. :woohoo:

We just saw it and LOVED it, but I missed Doc Hudson. :( I was waiting for him to make an appearance but he never did.

Good idea. I am seeing in tomorrow in Washington DC with some D23 folks. I think Doc Hudson wasn't in because he was voiced by Paul Newman who has since passed away.

You are probably right. They do mention him. Enjoy the movie! Lily LOVED it!!! Her favorite part was when Mater drove backwards. She now insists on walking backwards for the rest of the day so she can be "the World's Best Backwards Walker." I love this kid!!!

That is too cute! I also can't wait until the new Winnie the Pooh comes out!

My kids are not that excited about Winnie the Pooh. They are VERY excited about the Chipmunks and The Muppets though!

We just got home from seeing Cars 2. I thought it was cute and did enjoy it. The Chicago Trib panned it but for a Mom with 2 kids we felt it was a good movie. DS has been playing secret agent since we walked out of the theater. They were very smart about the spy element in the movie. I think it appeals to boys who have grown a few years since the original was released.

My favorite "Easter Egg" is a sponsor sign in London for LasseTyre! :thumbsup2

Loved it!
Was very different from Cars 1, which I also loved.

It moved very fast, and it was visually stunning.

Sorry to be a party pooper, but my 3 kids and I all hated it. Even my son who's 11 said "Dad, I guess Disney needed some movie stuff to fill up their store."

Kung Fu Panda 2 was a million times better. Pixar's first flop. Hopefully they will learn their lesson and either stop Monsters Inc 2 in its tracks or make a much better effort at it.

Total money grab on the characters of Cars, and very disappointing.
