Air Mater 2011 6 out of 10
Air Mater is one of a series of Car Toons or Mater's Tall Tales in which Mater ends up in some fun action packed unbelievable situations. This Pixar animated short t features Mater learning how to fly. All of the Mater Tall Tales are good--but they usually aren't as great as the original short films that Pixar makes. Each of the shorts in this series follow a similar formula, Mater tells Lightning McQueen about some wild story that happened to him. In Air Mater we get a lot of high flying action --but it doesn't have as many funny moments as some of the other Mater stories. If you are a big Mater fan you will love them. For me they are enjoyable, but I prefer the more original Pixar shorts.
This short is featured on the Pixar animated shorts DVD Volume 2
