    What Cars teaches is how to blend brash comedy with technical astonishments so that each enhances the other. I can't imagine who wouldn't want to test-drive this one. Like the promos say, "It's got that new-movie smell." show more

    Curiously and unexpectedly, the movie brings on a suffocating feeling of constraint. It's a consequence of seeing characters with such terribly limited mobility. show more

    Cars is a classic American tale firing on all cylinders and fueled by organic emotion and a lively sense of adventure. show more

    I absolutely adored this movie. It was funny, cute, and lighthearted. It was cleverly devised and well thought out. The morals and lessons stick with you long after the movie ends. I havn't seen a better Pixar movie since Monsters Inc.

    To tell the complete truth, Cars is the worst movie Pixar has ever made. The "humor" in Cars is based almost entirely on stereotypes. For example: Mater, the redneck car, and those two french cars. Another thing is, that most of Pixar's movies have the point of view of something other than human, but the thing they pick has to struggle with humans. For example: In Toy Story, Woody is worried about not being Andy's favorite toy. Woody and the others also struggle with the kid next door, Sid. But where are the humans in this movie? The plot in Cars is weak, and the entire movie itself just isn't logical. Pixar could've done a lot better, and I am very disappointed.
