On November 1, 2011, Disney•Pixar’s fast-action summer hit “Cars 2” became available on Blu-ray.  My family received a copy for review, which the kids were very excited about since they both enjoyed the theater release last summer.  Can you really go wrong with talking cars?  I think not.

A quick movie synopsis:

Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car.  But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.  Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell.  Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world.  The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.

Cars 2 is a great movie for boys who are 2 and up, which is great for this mama of boys.  The movie is action-packed and exciting the entire way through and makes a nice addition to the family Disney Blu-Ray library. (yes, we have a Disney Blu-Ray library!)
