Cars 2

I am hoping to go and see the latest Pixar film “Cars 2” which starts when a British Secret Agent Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) is on the trail of a Villainous Master Criminal named Professor Z who is up to no good.

Meanwhile back in Radiator Springs Tow Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) is awaiting the return of Lightning McQueen (LUke Wilson)  after having competed in his latest race, the Hudson Hornet Memorial Piston Cup.

Then On the Television later that night a former Oil Tycoon named Miles Axlerod is being interviewed about the forthcoming World Grand Prix,which he is organising in order to promote a new alternative fuel called Allinol, and Lightning McQueen finds himself being challenged to enter The World Grand Prix.

Then Mater unwittingly gets involved in the world of espionage when he finds himself in possession of a Top Secrret Device, and is mistaken for a secret agent by both Finn McMissile and his partner Holley Shiftwell.

Then tO make matters worse Mater ends up being continually pursued by two of Professor Z’s thugs named Acer & Grem, who also think he is a secret agent and are determined to recover the device and clobber him, but luckily he is assisted by both Finn McMissile and his partner Holley Shiftwell, who  both discover a sinister plot surrounding Allinol…

(I still reckon naming a car “Gremlin” is just asking for trouble 😀 .
