Life is a journey. Enjoy the trip.
Cars (2006) is an American computer-animated comedy-adventure sports film produced by Pixar and directed by John Lasseter. 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 (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 (Paul Newman), and Mater the Tow Truck (Larry the Cable Guy), the eager young racer learns that sometimes life is more about the voyage than the outcome of the race. Also features voices by Tony Shalhoub, Cheech Marin, Michael Wallis, George Carlin, Paul Dooley, Jenifer Lewis, Guido Quaroni, Michael Keaton, Katherine Helmond, and John Ratzenberger as well as voice cameos by several celebrities including Jeremy Piven, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Bob Costas, Darrell Waltrip, Jay Leno, Michael Schumacher, Tom and Ray Magliozzi from NPR’s Car Talk, and Mario Andretti. Cars was nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Animated Feature, and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film.
