Blue Monday - Review Cars 2 - Thumbs Down!

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

Isn't technology wonderful? It's a convenience to watch a movie in our home, played on our television--especially a movie that I planned to see but missed as I was in a coma when it was released this summer.

So, I was excited to watch Cars 2 recently. I admit it; I'm child-like, and I do love cartoons! We simply push a button or two on our remote, and pay the fee when our cable bill arrives. Then, we watch.

And that's about all the nice things I can say about this film. I suggest you save your rental fee on this one. There's no plot, and no true moral theme (which is a surprise for a Pixar movie). Many of the voices have accents, which make the dialog difficult to understand. I felt sorry for the children watching when adults have troubles comprehending a film. (sigh) What a bomb!

However, I do like the name of the character of this Blue car.
It's Sally--lovely name, and it's the perfect color for Blue Monday!

Happy Blue Monday!

Really?! We were able to get a copy of this a few months back but I have not had time to watch it yet. Now I know why my little tot never requested to watch this flick again. Unlike the Cars 1. thanks for the review Sally!

Hope you will be able to find a little blue on my post :)
have a great week!

☆♥Shydub♥☆ said...

I never seen the cars 1 and I sure won't watch the cars 2, thanks for the review Ms. Sally. Hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks for hosting


Lina Gustina said...

I haven't seen yet Cars 2; but I like Cars 1. Thanks for the useful review. It's a pity...

JennyHansson said...

Really? I was waiting for that Cars 2. I saw that Car 1 and i'm looking forward for the Cars2. I hope i can watch that soon.

Happy MOnday Sally...

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, Yes, the wonder of watching movies we missed at the theater on our TV is awesome. It is a good thing we didn't pay movie theater prices at times. Sally, the blue car in the movie is cute. I can see why you like that part of the movie. BIG Smile!

I still pray for your return to health and that you will be stronger than ever.

Blessing and concern always,

J Bar said...

We don't have much trouble with accents. Probably because we're used to hearing many different ones on our screens besides Australian. :)

Cafe au lait said...

I've never seen this movie but I was meaning to. Maybe I should just pass. :)

My Blue Monday.

Oh! Sorry to hear about you being in a coma this week! Hope you have recovered completely and are OK now.
Thanks for the review of that film! As for me, I rarely watch TV, and I don't go to the cinema very often! My other hobbies take too much time! He he he!

Have a nice and happy week, Sally****

Eden said...

I have seen Cars 2 and I love it.

Happy Blue Monday!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Haven't seen Cars 2 but loved Cars! Sally is a cute car and a very nice name for a very nice person!
Enjoy your Blue Monday!

Dorincard said...

Hey, Sally! It's good to be able to express your opinions, when you really want.
How many nuances of blue are out there?
Did you know that the giraffe has blue tongue?

Becky K. said...

Love the car named Sally but am sorry the movie was a bust. I haven't seen it but do find that to be the case so often with follow up movies. Although, like you, I usually think Pixar does a good job with a message and the quality of the films.

MC said...

Oh.. I love the first part of this movie and it makes me excited to watch Cars 2! ;) Joining Blue Monday for the first time! ♥

Helen's Decor said...

Hi Sally! My husband and I took our grandchildren ages 8 and 6 to see Cars 2 on the big screen and we all loved it. We have watched the first one anytime they have visited us for the holidays and they are spellbound as they were in the theater. It was a terrific day and a great memory as they live several states away. Our granddaughter will say she doesn't like "Cars" but ends up giggling and loving either movie as much as her brother.

Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving, Helen

Lesa said...

What a shame you didn't like it. We love Cars 2 as much as the first one. Such a cute film and fun tip of the hat to retro spy movies.

Marianne said...

Thanks for hosting Blue Monday, Sally!

Marianne said...

Ruh roh! My first entry (No. 51) has the wrong link, Sally. Can you delete it, please? No. 52 is correct. Thanks!

Watching cartoons usually makes me happy but not always. Sounds like Cars II is something I can miss. I did enjoy Finding Nemo though. Hope you have a wonderful and stress free week.
♥, Susan

Treasia said...

We just loved the movie. We went and seen it at the drive in and took the grand kids.

Sarah said...

Hi Sally! My kids were saying just the other day that they wanted to see that one. Have you seen the first Cars? Have a great week!

HaPpY bLuE mOnDaY!

Loui♥ said...

hello all!!!!
heading back to Denver tomorrow..
love to all

LV said...

This movie has never been my thing. Children, especially boys, love it no matter what. In fact, I am getting a young fellow one for his Christmas.

Dixie said...

sorry to hear the movie was disappointing... I wouldn't go to see it anyway... but I have a feeling my grands will go... and they'll probably like it whether they understand it or not... Kiddos!

Anonymous said...

Aw, that's too bad. But how neat to have a blue car with your name? :-)

Rovie said...

Never seen that movie but my husband like it and keep on watching it again on the DVD.

Joining you Meme this week Sally.

I have not seen either movie but I like this blue color better than the red...Christine

Goodness, bit by bit hearing more of what you went through, I'm ever so much more thankful you're doing better and better. What a trek.
We almost rented that movie the other night. Glad we didn't. I wondered about being able to hear the dialogue. Seems so many people mutter their words or run them together enough to be unintelligible. We often turn on the subtitles but that's so distracting!
Yes, what a wonderful Blue Sally car! Doesn't it just make you Smile? (Unintended pun)
Great to visit and participate today.
Thanks! Love & Hugs, Jenn

Leovi said...

Beautiful color on Sally. I wish you a happy week.

Joy said...

Sorry you didn't like the movie, that is always a big let down. Happy Blue Monday! Hope you like the next movie you see a lot better. ;)

Wind said...

My best regards from Romania , Sally!

Mel Cole said...

The first movies usually are the good ones worth watching again and again. I haven't watched car 2 and we heard rumors bad about it. Now I know why from your review. Thanks Sally!

Annesphamily said...

Hi Sally! I love "Cars" so am loving the blue! Great post. Have a terrific week! Anne

pat said...

Thanks for the heads up on the movie.

Sally! I'm so glad you're back and better.......I missed you.


Judi said...

Hi Sally *hugs*
Well thank you for the great review. Isn't that something that they wouldn't think that it might be difficult for everyone and yes especially children to understand. Thats unfortunate.
I have not watched any of the Cars movies and perhaps that will be one I won't start with.

I hope you are feeling REALLY good these days..and continue feeling better and better.

Hope you have a great weekend. We have some really nice weather today in the upper 50s.yay!

I will admit that Cars 2 isn't as good as Cars 1 but we still enjoyed it quite a bit. I didn't find the accents difficult at all but I watch a lot of BBC and have traveled a lot. I find my ear switches fairly easily.
