After a year of working on Mater, Francesco, Finn and the gang - Cars 2 opens in theatres today.
I'd be lying if I say I didn't follow what the critics are saying about the film. To be honest, 5 years ago when I watched the original Cars I was saying alot of the similar comments the critics are saying today. The thing is, 4 years ago I had my boy Jackson. It wasn't until I pressed play on the dvd player and watched my son smile ear to ear as he watched Lightning and Mater do tractor tipping, that I finally 'got it!'
The Cars franchise is not for me or the film critics - it's just good clean popcorn movie fun for the kids. And for that, I feel extremely proud to be part of it.
I'm going to love watching my son's smiling face as he watches Finn McMissle drive across the big screen this weekend.
