Cars 2-G- What’s the Buzz? Pixar did not impress film critics with this sequel many felt it ran on fumes from the beginning until the end. Colin Covert from the Minneapolis Star Tribune states; “With “Cars 2,” Pixar goes somewhere new: the ditch.” What do consumers have to say? Many believed this film lacked heart and soul and many grew tired of Larry the Cable Guys routine.  So is it worth the money? Yes! (if your other option is Transformers).

Bad Teacher: R – What’s the Buzz? This film scored surprisingly better than I thought it would among critics. What were some of the comments? From USA today Claudia Puig states; “No one bothered to create anything beyond a vague outline of a superficial character.” The common complaint was the screenplay lacked substance and required the actors to work far too hard. Consumers and film critics on Metacritic gave the film better reviews. They said Cameron Diaz delivers up a down and dirty fun time  Is it worth the money? Yes!
