Lightning McQueen, a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. On route across the country to the big Piston Cup Championship in California to compete against two seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know the town's offbeat characters –including Sally, Doc Hudson, and Mater – who help him realize that there are more important things than trophies, fame and sponsorship.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Overall, if the film is not as funny as its predecessors, that's probably part and parcel of why it doesn't seem as enchanting. Emotionally, despite the character arc, Cars doesn't resonate in the same way The Incredibles or Toy Story did.
Roger EbertFull Review Good The movie is great to look at and a lot of fun, but somehow lacks the extra push of the other Pixar films.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 221 moviegoers: ANOTHER MEGA HIT FROM PIXAR ANIMATION! These opinions are EXTREMELY HIGH! Everyone Loved "Cars"! This is absolutely a "MUST SEE" (especially on the big screen). Take the entire family to see "Cars."
