We’ve teamed up with MSN FilmFan to discuss the films opening this weekend. We’d love to hear your input on what you’re most interested in seeing and why.

This weekend, Pixar's CARS 2 and possible-Cameron-Diaz-career-revivial BAD TEACHER open. Right now, both films are sitting in the tight-roping position of the 50% range on Rotten Tomatoes; considering the wide success of CARS, this isn't a good sign for future sequels. But, then again, there's been no less than three sequels to PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and it was just announced that ON STRANGER TIDES (33% on Tomatometer) is currently sitting at a worldwide gross of $960,013,548. BAD TEACHER director Jake Kasdan has had some cult hits on his hands (ORANGE COUNTY, ZERO EFFECT) and directed a few episodes of Freaks and Geeks, so you already know what I plan on seeing this weekend.

Our partner for this article, MSN FilmFan's Sami Jarroush discusses the pros and cons of seeing both films. Hit the break to watch the video and, in the comments section, let us know which film you plan on racing to the theater to see.

Both CARS 2 and BAD TEACHER open wide this Friday.
