Cars and Cars 2 were two of Disney-Pixar films most financially viable films. With its great mix of characters, speed, big name stars and cars. This film can appeal to everyone.
Cars starred Owen Wilson (Zoolander), Bonnie Hunt (Jumanjii) and Tony Shaloub (Monk). And was directed by John Lasseter (Toy Story 2). With a budget of $120 million, the film has grossed a staggering $461,983,149 worldwide.
Cars 2 was also a box office success, which had a budget of $200 million, grossed $559,852,396 worldwide.
Perhaps the funniest character in both Cars and Cars 2 is Tow Mater, who is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy (Tooth Fairy 2), the dim witted, rusty old car, who has all of the funniest lines. And is an endearing and wonderful creation. Who is at the centre of Cars 2 and, in a sense, becomes a protagonist of the film.
Check out these quotes from Mater below:
Mater: We’ll talk later, Mater… hehe – later, Mater – that’s funny!
Holley Shiftwell: So Mater, it’s voice-activated. But, you know, everything’s voice-activated these days.
Mater: What? I thought you’s supposed to be making me a dee-sguise.
Mater’s Computer: Voice recognized. Disguise program initiated.
