Finally, Some Positive Role Models for Kids

I saw the movie Cars over the weekend with my wife and daughter. It was very cute and fun to sit through, though a bit long for a four-year-old.

I was happy to see that Disney-Pixar did not succumb to the all too easy temptation to make some Italian characters gangsters. There were two Italian characters in the movie, Guido and Luigi. Luigi owns the tire shop and Guido works for him. They were cute and funny (despite Luigi's cliche heavy Italian accent). There was not one mention of gangsters, the Mafia or anything else negative in these characters.

Bravo Disney-Pixar.

Go see Cars. It's a fun movie. And the kids will love it.
