Anyone else a Luigi fan?

I know the critics panned Cars, but we just loved it, I suppose 99% of it just went straight over the heads of the film critics, rather like a NASCAR thats just missed turn 2! The most intersting thing to me was that despite FIAT not being offered on the US market for as long as I can remember, 30+ years, and the film being very US biased Luigi still works, and he was on sale in the Disney shop. Only the small one is for me, this is also the first time in 20 years that I have had any interest in a Disney offering.
