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.

| Evidently new cars are BAD!
This is a clever short film that strikes me as something of a deleted scene from Monsters, Inc, into which this short film would have fit quite nicely, especially clocking in at a whopping three and a half minutes! It's an interesting illustration of the dangers of upgrading to these high tech new cars available today, especially if you are just a regular guy like Mike. He buys this fancy new car with six wheels and can't contain himself at how cool it is, and then he and Sulley get beaten up by it because they have no idea how to use it. It's probably something similar to what would happen to me if I managed to get my hands on a brand new car. When cars are driving themselves I'll still be excited to have power steering.

It's pretty funny to see Mike and Sulley struggle to figure out the new car, especially when Sulley gets all fascinated by the power seats, quickly annoying Mike, who seconds earlier couldn't wait to show him all the new gadgets in his fancy new car. I have come to expect more than this from Pixar, though, especially in their short films, which generally contain enough charm and amusement in just a few minutes to fill a full-length movie. This is a cute film, but it is not up to the level of other great films from them, like Geri's Game or For the Birds. Still a pretty cute film, though, and it's not like you can really complain about a three and a half minute short anyway, right?
