From Back Cover:
From the acclaimed creators of Toy Story, The Incredibles and Finding Nemo comes a high-octane adventure comedy that shows life is about the journey, not the finish line.
Hotshot rookie race car Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is living life in the fast lane until he hits a detour on his way to the most important race of his life. Stranded in Radiator Springs, a forgotten town on the old Route 66, he meets Sally, Mater, Doc Hudson (Paul Newman), and a variety of quirky characters who help him discover that there's more to life than trophies and fame.
Revved up with a sensational soundtrack, featuring Rascal Flatts, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, James Taylor, and others, plus exciting bonust features, including the exclusive short movie "Mater and the Ghostlight," Cars is full of freewheeling fun for everyone.
This is a delightful and surprisingly moving film with a universal appeal and unforgettable characters. Though not quite Pixar's best offering, it is an excellent film nevertheless. A sequel is apparently in the works, but sadly two of its cast - George Carlin and Paul Newman - have passed away since its release.
Rated G (MPAA)
