Today's Verse

Monday, January 28, 2008


A while back, I talked about the movie Barnyard that Mattie May was hooked on. Well, we have moved on. We no longer watch the talking cows and mules on a nightly basis, now we watch talking cars! We have moved on to "the raca caas" (translation -the race cars). Yes, thank you Disney! We now watch Cars at least once a night (2 times tonight!). If you have not seen this movie, and if you have anyone living in your house under 10 I am sure you've seen it, it is really a cute movie. I think it has a really good moral to the story.

It is about a race car in his rookie season, Lighting McQueen, who could be the first rookie ever to win the piston cup. And he believes he can do it on his own. As you can imagine, something terrible happens and he learns the meaning of friendship and what it truly means to be a winner.

I love the voices. Owen Wilson is Lighting McQueen, Paul Newman is Doc Hudson, and Larry the Cable Guy is Tow Mater. The movie mostly takes place in Radiator Springs which is located on the nearly deserted Route 66.

A Disney movie that has a lesson even a grown up can learn from. If you ever get the chance, watch it. If you don't want to rent it, wait a while and when we aren't watching ours every night, you are more than welcome to borrow it.

Don't forget the lactose intolorance and the not wanting to be potty trained parts! But the full of love part I will take from either of them any day! It has to be that 1/3 thing!

Natalie has only seen cars once. Maybe I should rent it and see what she's been a long time!
