Why was Cars 2 so bad?

I've been thinking about why Cars 2 didn't quite hit the mark and I think it boils down to a few key reasons. Firstly, the storyline felt disjointed and lacked the emotional depth we're used to seeing in Pixar films. Secondly, the movie focused too much on Mater, a character better suited for comic relief than a lead role. The spy theme felt out of place in the Cars universe and, finally, the humor seemed forced and not as natural as in the first movie. In a nutshell, Cars 2 just couldn't live up to the charm and storytelling prowess of its predecessor.
