In this movie, they took a step from talking animals to machines. The animation is great, almost like any other modern Pixar animated film. The story’s main character is Lightning McQueen, a red race car who realizes that he didn’t win his last race – he tied. On his way to the rematch, he damages the road and has to do community service as punishment. He makes lots of friends during his community service and gains some morals – life isn’t all about winning and being famous. Lightning McQueen, along with his newfound morality, enters the racetrack once again. However, when something doesn’t go as planned on the racetrack, McQueen may have to jeopardize his chances of winning in order to help out a friend.

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 26, 2012

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.
