Yes, hi badmoviephiles.  I need your help.  I'm having an argument with my good friend Dexter.  Here's how it goes

2 weeks ago, Dexter and his friends came over my place to watch with me the Disney/Pixar film Cars.  Like we do every week, we select a movie and nitpik all its reality flaws.  Cars had so many reality flaws its unreal.  But there is a little disagreement between Dexter and me concerning Cars's main character, Lightning McQueen.  You see, Dexter thinks Lightning is a 1976 corvette stingray.  But I think he's wrong.  Lightning McQueen's body style is more like a Dodge Viper.  Which one of us is right?

Actually, I don't think either of you is. It looks more like Lightning is meant to be a generic sports car. It wouldn't surprise me if it isn't supposed to look like anything specific. That way, they don't have to share any royalties from the toy reproductions.

OK - why on earth would you waste time "nitpicking for reality flaws"  in an animated movie about talking cars????? BounceGiggle

Ok first off, I didn't choose the film my friends and I nitpicked 2 weeks ago.  Its always put to a vote.  There's about 15 of us.  They come over my house to nitpick film because I have the best home theater setup of the 15 of us.  We have been doing this for the last 12 years.  I remember last year when we nitpicked The Devil's Rejects.  We unanimously agreed that was the absolute worst film in the history of filmmaking.  So we took the DVD, I brought out my bag of Kingsford and lighter fluid and...you can guess the rest.

Aww, I think it's best you both agree this is all silly and make friends again in the playground tomorrow.  Smile

Wow, now I know why you disappeared for a while.  There's a ruptured pod somewhere with the deflated skin of the REAL Circus Circus near it.
