I couldn't get into this movie. It looks cute, but it begins with this very long segment of an Indy 500-type race. I soon lost interest. A couple of scenes were mildly funny, and I enjoyed hearing/seeing Tony Shalhoub's voice-over as Luigi, but overall, thumbs down for me.

One of my top recommended kids movies, GREAT, AMAZING, may or may not have been the first non-ultra young kid movie.

A pretty okay movie that does what it sets out to do. Very predictable though, and don't think too much about the rules of the world.

I liked this cartoon DVD. It is good for all ages. The story was strong. It has a morale story in the script.

I remember watching the first Car movie with my younger brother and we both absolutely enjoyed it. The main character of Cars is Lightning McQueen, a rookie race car that's full of himself, who later learns that the world might not be so centered around him. Lightning McQueen encounters a situation in which he goes from being the center of attraction in a very popular race track to a nobody in an unknown town. This makes him angry which is all fun to watch alongside the humor associated with it. What makes this movie so great though, is that it shows that even within unexpected situations in a place you do not know, you can still encounter people who you can get along and that you can grow to adapt to such people. This happened to McQueen with Mater, Sally, Hudson, and basically all of the residents of Radiator Springs. They all started on the wrong foot, full of dissatisfaction with one another (aside from Mater's and McQueen's relationship), but were able to put their differences aside and get along after a bit. This movie can also teach kids not to be full of themselves if they even are and learn to give other people a chance and the benefit of the doubt. Thus, I would recommend watching this movie, if you like cars or have children that do. Rating: 5

Cars takes place in a world populated by anthropomorphic transportation. The film begins with the last race of the Piston Cup championship, which ends in a three-way tie between retiring veteran Strip "The King" Weathers, perennial runner-up Chick Hicks, and rookie Lightning McQueen. The tiebreaker race is scheduled for one week later at the Los Angeles International Speedway. Lightning is desperate to win the race, since it would allow him to leave the unglamorous sponsorship of Rust-Eze, a rust treatment for old cars, and allow him to take The King's place as the sponsored car of the lucrative Dinoco team. Eager to start practice in California as soon as possible, Lightning pushes his big rig, Mack, to travel all night long. While McQueen is sleeping, the exhausted Mack drifts off and is startled by a gang of reckless street racers, causing McQueen to fall out the back of the truck into the road. McQueen wakes in the middle of traffic, and speeds off the highway to find Mack, ending up in a run-down town of Radiator Springs and inadvertently ruining the pavement of its main road.

Other: (spoiler alert) something we seemed to miss all the time, is when Lightening asks if anyone knew Doc had 3 piston cups, Mater says in shock, "he did what in his cup?" Get it? i hope not. the Lord's name is briefly thrown out there once too.
