We figured that most families were either at the movies seeing Cars 2 this weekend, or on a summer roadtrip. “So why not combine the two?” we asked.
So where did we start? Well, like most Pixar movies, we determined there would be a theater-shattering box office opening. So in addition to the salaries of actors and graphic designers, what could that money pay for?
So that's a lot of money, obviously. But gas is also pretty expensive. That road trip to the Grand Canyon this summer is already looking super costly. So just how far could you go with that much gas?
Back to Cars 2. In the movie, Lightning McQueen heads overseas to compete in the first ever World Grand Prix. How many times could the same red racing machine drive the World Grand Prix in the time it takes to cover all the roads in America?
So with the cost of gas, you're still forking over an arm and a leg for a race. Or a family trip. But the same could be said for movie tickets. Just how far could you go on the road with the price you pay for a family movie outing?
