CARS!!

okay- we saw cars last night!! now i'm not going to give this a glowing review just because i have a super fond place in my heart for my old workplace (i love you disney.. love you, love you, love you!!).. but this movie was freaking ADORABLE!!!! i thought it was so cute, so fun and i just loved it! i think i liked it more than blake did! the music was awesome and well, any movie that wants to put brad paisley in their soundtrack is alright with me! total country music, nascar feel. it was really adorable. it wasn't super funny.. like i didn't find myself completely cracking up like i have in some of their past movies, but i think it was consistantly good.

i totally want to road trip now! like i would love to cruise on route 66 with blake and boyfriend! so fun!!! i bet that blake doesn't even realize that route 66 is a real road. i'm going to have to inform him tonight! as soon as i go to target (i love you target! i want to have 10 thousand of your little target babies!!) and buy the cars soundtrack. yes, i liked it that much. my favorite character was mater.. "like tah-mater.. without the tah." omg, he was so funny and dorky! one of the best parts was at the end when they showed a bunch of older pixar movies, but done as cars.. car toy story, car monsters inc.. etc.. it was so fucking creative. they truly are brilliant! love them!!!!

yay! now the next movie i'm really excited about is pirate's 2... have you seen the trailer?!? watch it now!!!! :) i don't mean to be a walking billboard for my old job, but i can't help it! when they kick ass, i'm excited about it!

Well, now that you mention it, I may just have to end up watching it!

That sounds really cute! Is a two year old too young to appreciate it? How about a 30 year old?

Jenn, I took Tacy to see it last Sunday - very cute! Did you see the movie short at the beginning, with the two street entertainers and the little girl? The theater was dead silent except for me cracking up.

And how about at the end, with all the Cliff Claven characters? I cracked up at that too, because Kyle and I always joke about which character he'll play in each new Pixar film.

DD said...

I really enjoyed it as well. My favorite characters were the Italian tire-store owners. I'm bummed that that McD's and Target did not do toys for them as I think they stole the show.

By the way, it has a good moral to the story as well.

Jennifer said...

I agree with you, Jennster; although I myself didn't see it but Jordan and Daddy went on Saturday. Since then Jordan walks around saying, "See ya later, Mater-gater-tater!" Too cute! I bought a few of them @ Target earlier last week and Heaven help us if they ALL don't go to bed with him at night!!!!

Melissa said...

We are going to see it on Saturday. I am almost as excited if not more, that the girls.

I am really excited about Pirates too.

Kel said...

We are taking Little Man this weekend. He can't wait!

Pirates....SQUEEEEE!!! Who doesn't love a pirate that wears eyeliner?

I'm really excited about it. Can't you tell?

Stephanie said...

Thanks for the recommendation - I was thinking about taking Leah to see Cars - now I will have to take her! I too cannot wait for Pirate's 2. I only hope it is as good as the first one!

Alison said...

Hmmmm....it was my turn to take Nick to see a movie, but I passed to Chris because it's about CARS. Maybe I should rethink this. If anything, I'll enjoy the heavily buttered and salted popcorn and the music. :)

meesh said...

Hi! very cool blog you've got here. :)

Is it silly that I am also excited about seeing this movie (and Pirates 2) even though I'm a single, childless gal? I just can't help myself. Who can resist Pixar and talking cars?

penguininthesun said...

hmm.. must be something in the air because I was just doing some reasearch on road tripping. Let us know how yours goes if you do.

Lisa said...

We saw it last night too for my little man's birthday on a mega screen. He loved it. He can't wait for his daddy to take him now too!

Dustin said...

buy some disney stock now.
come december it should be up at least 20% just cuz of this movie.

thats my advice

Kristin said...

I live for animated movies as they are the only things I ever get to see anymore!

J's Mommy said...

sounds like fun. do you think a 3 year-old would enjoy it??

Mega Mom said...

I took the boys the day it opened. Very cute!

Elizabeth said...

I really want to take the boys to see Cars! Have you seen the toys at McDonald's? They're a pretty good size. Nathan got Mater and he really likes him.

SO you're old job was what, working for a movie studio? Or a company that makes the trailers? More info, please!

Please visit me at my new blog site, http://table4five.wordpress.com. Same blog, no more Connection or Comment failures!

Waya said...

That's great! I can't wait to take my son to see it! Loved everything Pixar did.

Mommy off the Record said...

Sorry, I couldn't get past the line where you said you worked for Disney. How cool is that?! What did you do there? And can you clue me in as to where the weird sexual images are in the Disney cartoons? I always found that weird and perverted, but funny and fascinating at the same time.

Domestic Chicky said...

I can't wait to see it this weekend! It's going to be Connor's first movie in the theater. Woohoo!

kat said...

if you go down route 66, may i recomend seeing the mermaid place...with mermaids...i forget what it's called.

i apparently like "mater" too, even though i haven't seen the movie, becasue i dreamed about larry the cable guy the other night. i don't understand it either.

carrie said...

Thanks for the non-review! Hope that helps entertain the boys during the first week of no school, eeek!

russ said...

denise said...

OMFG!!! all hail the Depp. I love him, love love love him. Even if he wasnt in it though Id watch it that movie looks fabulous.

Izzy said...

Thanks for the Cars review. My daughter is DYING to see it! And I didn't know you used to work for the Mouse!

Kevin Charnas said...

we are SO DAMN EXCITED FOR PIRATES 2!!! and now, I think we're going to have to go see CARS. How can we not after that?

mollymcmommy said...

Angry Dad said...

Cars really was cool. I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did! It is a cool soundtrack too.

Amy said...

I really liked Cars too and can't wait for Pirates 2. And while Disney can have a little of the credit for that I would pay to watch Johnny Depp sleeping ;-)

creative-Type Dad (Tony) said...

I might be bias because I still work for the mouse....but I agree!

Can't wait until my daughter is old enough to sit through it..
