So you need a sequel to your exciting car racing movie, but your Disney overlords want you to sell tons of toys and give them more Larry the Cable Guy... Do you blow them off or go all in?
Well, Pixar went all in. Cars 2 is one of the most critically panned movies Pixar ever created. In some ways, it's terrible. In some ways, it's positively brilliant. Pixar doesn't half-ass anything and Cars 2 is a fun spy thriller with plenty of shiny toys for the kids and lots of in-jokes for adults.
Joining us to talk Cars 2 is one of our favorite repeat guests, comedian Derek Williams! Derek and James defend the movie to Sid, who kind of sees their point. Yeah, it's a little ridiculous, but for us car guys it's not a bad thing - it's actually a good way to expose our kids to different forms of racing outside of NASCAR thanks to the variety of race cars in the movie.
Which is the best race car? Does the movie treat lemons fairly? What's Sig from Deadliest Catch doing in there anyway?!
