Goofs

At Thunder Hollow, Cruz (under the name Frances Beltline) has the number #20 sprayed on her right side. When we see her during the talk with Smokey and the other veterans, it is now on her right side. Later she has it spray-painted on both sides when practicing with McQueen (in order to substitute for Jackson Storm, who's racing number is also #20) but this is after McQueen talks to Smokey.

Stalled in pit lane....
19 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a huge supporter and fan of the first CARS film, and not caring at all for the 2nd, this one was phoned in, lacked the "SOUL" and interest of the original. The parts are there, the deep drama and personal problems but it failed to flow. Just plodded along from thing to thing until the big climax ending. The ending was fine, but I have zero desire to ever watch this again, and won't be buying the disc, and WILL be watching the original again to re-feel everything that was missing here.

And it is almost too deep for kids. Lots of talk about life and retiring from it, and not lots of kid style hijinks.

It looked great and had a story, but felt like a cash grab --- or that all the original PIXAR writers were not involved.
