This is one of Pixar's best movie besides Toy Story and Finding Nemo! An action packed movie that gets your engine running full throttle from start to finish!
Both my son & I really like this movie. The characters are well done, the storyline is interesting and the movie has some catchy tunes.
This was a very cute movie. We got it for our 2 1/2 year old son and he loves it. My husband and I really like the music and its funny for adults as well as kids.
my daughter loves this movie. great for round the house & road trips.
Like a couple other Pixar movies, I went into this very VERY excited. But when I walked out of the theater I was a little disappointed. Then, like a couple other Pixar movies, I bought it (because I am a huge fan), and by the end of the second viewing I realized it was my all-time favorite movie. Weird, huh? Here's why: I went into it thinking it would be drop-dead hysterical. It wasn't. But what it WAS was breath-takingly fantastic. I wish agencies didn't advertise Pixar movies as being "The Funniest Movie of the Year," because like Wall-E and Ratatouille, the films aren't that funny (or better put, they're not made JUST to be funny). Yes, there is lots and LOTS of fun and when there are jokes, they are perfectly timed and well executed (unlike a lot of non-Pixar movies). Cars is so much more than just a silly little comedy... it's a movie that reminds us of very timeless messages that we in America have forgotten: To take the slow road every now and then, and being a winner (or too focused on it) can just make you look like a jerk. I don't know where people find the steriotyped animated message which is: Be true to yourself and and be a good friend or whatever. This animated movie goes much further than that, and the Pixar guys really challenge our young ones (and even us adults) to stop striving to win all the time. Sometimes you've already got what you need to make you happy. To sum up, Cars is funy - not hysterical - beautiufl, touching, and flawlessly and carefully put together, frame by frame. Basically, Pixar rolled their sleeves once more and worked their magic as usual.
I've seen pretty much every animated film out there today, and none compare to "Cars." This movie is easily the best animated film of 2006. "Cars" screams orginality and creativity. Lately, other animated films have been appealing to older audiences but "Cars" is good, clean fun. It's a movie you can watch over and over again with your children or with anyone.
As far as I'm concerned, Pixar can do no wrong. They've been scoring consistent hits since "Toy Story". You've got some dynamite photo-realistic CGI animation here, and I LOVED the voice-casting. Even the late great Paul Newman shines as ol' Doc Hudson. Yes, I'll also admit I'm a fan of Larry the Cable Guy, who was perfect as Mater. And let's not forget little Guido (can you say "peet stop"?).
A pedal-to-the-metal race car determined to prove his worth on the tracks discovers that life isn't always about crossing the finish line first in Toy Story director John Lasseter's mechanically minded tale of friendship and loyalty. Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) may be just a rookie, but he's convinced that he can realize his dream of zooming by the checkered flag if he can only make it to California in time to compete in the upcoming Piston Cup Championship. When Lightning takes a detour into the slow-moving, Route 66 town of Radiator Springs, however, it begins to appear as if his shot at the big time has effectively stalled out. Of course, Lightning's exciting cross-country trek wasn't all for naught, and after befriending such quirky Radiator Springs residents as Sally the Porsche (voice of Bonnie Hunt), Doc Hudson (voice of Paul Newman), and Mater the Tow Truck (voice of Larry the Cable Guy), the eager young racer learns that sometimes life is more about the voyage than the outcome of the race.
If your family values good, wholesome movies this one teaches a great lesson but at the expense of exposing your children to language they're bound to repeat. Anyone with young children knows they start quoting lines from any movie they've seen more than once. I rented this to watch with my two preschoolers. We turned it off (a little too late) after my preschoolers heard the following words/phrases: stupid, moron, sexy, the race was a pisser, the track is always lit....so's my brother, etc. Unfortunately many kids are exposed to this kind of language on a regular basis - they don't need more of it. I'm sorry I made the mistake of assuming Rated-G meant a good, clean movie.
I don't usually go for animated movie, although I do have a weakness for Disney movies. Cars was an awesome movie that had humor and lessons for all ages. It catered to many different mass audiences, while keeping all of them captivated. Definately a must own.
I love Cars!!!!!!! Its graphic animation is terrific!!!! The bright eye-candy color's used definately catches the viewers attention, I know it caught mine. I also admire the fact that it is very funny. I was crackin up througout the movie, in fact the whole theater was. I LOVE MATER!!!!!!!!! (who is played by the hilarous comidean Larry the Cable Guy). You and your children of all ages would definately enjoy Cars! If you have yet to watch it then your missing out BIG time!
I don't really like animated movies, but Pixar is different. Out of them, the best is there newest movie, Cars. It's just so funny and bittersweet, it'll have your stomach hurting from laughing so much, and your heart resonating with the spirit of Cars.
This is an entertaining movie with a great message that is handled subtley. This is a must see for families!!
I write this as a Route 66 afficianado who loved the movie. I am familiar with the real life "versions" of several things in the film, including the Cozy Cone Motel and the "Here It Is" sign. Setting that aside, I loved the movie, particularly the message about taking the back roads and slowing down to see things, as opposed to zooming past on the interstate. Having traveled Route 66 in its entirety once (1995) and from Oklahoma City, OK to Barstow, CA (2001), I can personally vouch for the message they're trying to get across. The movie really touched my heart.
It wasn't a laugh a minute but it had its moments. The story line was interesting and will keep both big kids and little kids watching until the very end. A good movie to turn on during the Holidays and not have to worry about offending anyone.
This was just ok
Pixar has done it again, and I dont care if you critics are gagging at this. dont listen to the critics any of you. they have no clue what there talking about. The animation is wonderful, they have charachters that are believable and humor for kids and adults to keep you all entertained. I encourage all to watch this film. there's no crude language, and nothing bad or harmful in this film of any nature.
This is the best movie that went out this year! I liked it even better than "Over The Hedge"! It's about this selfish race-car who is on his way to an important race when he gets stranded on a deserted town call Radiator Springs. There, he's forced to do community service for accidentally destroying the road. The plot line was very original and creative, and the animation was just GORGEOUS!!! Everything literally looked so real. I've always been a big fan of Pixar movies, and this is an excellent DVD to add to the rest of my Pixar films. :-) My favorite feature on the DVD is "Mater and the Ghostlight"... it is so hilarious!!! :-) If you have not seen this movie, then you NEED to see it immediantly! It's a great movie!!!!!
