Mike's New Car (2002) Poster

Mike's bought a new 6-wheel-drive car, and he can't wait to show it off to Sulley. Only problem is, Mike hasn't exactly mastered the controls yet, and they're pretty complicated.

| A nice short film, but not one of my favourites from Pixar
I saw Mike's New Car not just because it was Pixar but I just love Monster's Inc, finding it very funny and with lots of heart. Mike's New Car is not as good as Monster's Inc, and I do prefer other Pixar shorts like Geri's Game, Presto, One Man Band, Knick Knack and Jack-Jack Attack. The short is short, perhaps too short, so while funny it sometimes lacked the heart of some of Pixar's other work, and I wasn't crazy about the intro, lovely understated jazz music but the miniature versions of Mike and Sulley look odd. The story is simple but at the same time forgettable and perhaps over-reliant on the physical humour. This said, the physical humour is great, very funny especially the ending, and there is some dialogue, and it is witty with the best being the "PUSH THE BUTTON!" exchange . Mike and Sulley are likable characters with an easy-going chemistry, and they are voiced wonderfully by Billy Crystal and John Goodman. The music is jazzy but with a soothing quality, but the best asset is the beautiful animation, like with Monsters Inc I am still impressed at the lengths given to make Sulley look as furry and as real as possible. All in all, nice but I've seen better from Pixar. 7/10 Bethany Cox
