Cars 2 (2011)

Racecar Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and his tow-truck buddy, Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), have had their share of adventures together but nothing like what they experience when they head overseas for the first-ever World Grand Prix. While Lightning has his eye on the road to the championship, Mater takes a detour to international espionage when he meets British master spy Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and stunning spy-in-training Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer).

I think I've said this before, in a comment on the blue, but...I think the film is fine as far as it goes, just mistitled, which set the expectations too high. It's not Cars 2. It's Mater: The Spy Who Lubed Me.

gorgeous scenery, but everyone is so stereotypical and without much diversity. Where are the "half english / half french" cars (Dad was a Range Rover, Mom was a Peugeot type of thing)? everyone seems to be 100% from whatever country (car type) they are from...
