TWO FOR THE ROAD.

In the first Cars film, the biggest rube
in Radiator Springs hitched himself to famous race car Lightning McQueen
and never let go. The rusty tow truck Mater (voiced by professional rube
Larry the Cable Guy) was desperate to be friends in a sexmistalkery way. I
always assumed that, on his return to civilization, McQueen (Owen Wilson) would
gently detach from needy, dopey Mater. Just because the former braggart
learned humility on Route 66 didn’t mean he had to be a martyr.

Somehow, that’s what Pixar’s high-gloss,
thinly premised Cars 2 wants. This globetrotting spy adventure
treats the race‑car–rube match as a love
affair to be nurtured and cherished. After taking Mater to the
World Grand Prix in Tokyo, McQueen loses his first heat to a flashy
Italian (John Turturro) because of one of Mater’s innocent flights of idiocy.
There’s a scolding (“Maybe you should just act a little different,”
McQueen says), and a chastened Mater rolls away.

But no one pauses long to pout.
Mistaken for an undercover agent by British spy cars Finn McMissile (Michael
Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer), Mater is whisked off on a
mission. An alternative-fuel conspiracy is afoot, and an amusing crew of
mobsters (Yugos, Gremlins, Pacers) is out to promote Big Oil.

A Pixar movie is always lively,
and this might be the studio’s liveliest (and loudest) yet — but its leanest
in terms of warmth and heart. The movie coasts on endless puns
and visual gags. Its delight in an alternate reality in which cars go to
discos and aim blowtorches at one another is as golly gee whiz as Mater
himself.

Fitting, since this is Mater’s movie.
It’s a Materthon. I would call it Materific if he didn’t leave me longing for
WALL•E’s robot to crush him into a silent cube. Such is the sincerity of the
Pixar vision and the marvel of its visual execution that I feel guilty about
this urge. Such is my child’s devotion to the franchise that I can hear him
saying, “Mommy, that’s mean. Mater’s nice.” Well, yes, he is nice.
But friendships must include give and take, and the premise of Cars 2 — that it
is a cardinal sin to ask a friend to alter his behavior — is a lemon.
