From the Creators of The Incredibles & Finding Nemo!

Hotshot race car Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is living life in the fast lane - until he hits a detour and gets stranded in Radiator Springs, a forgotten town on Route 66. There he meets Sally, Mater, Doc Hudson (Paul Newman) and a heap of hilarious characters who help him discover there's more to life than trophies and fame. Go deeper into the world of Cars than you ever dreamed possible in eye-popping visual clarity. Feel the sound of roaring engines and rock to the rhythm of some smokin' roadhouse riffs with audio enhancement that puts the pedal to the metal! Experience Cars for the first time on Disney Blu-ray -- Magic in High Definition.

"...it's more fun to follow than a televised freeway chase.  Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"What's surprising about this supremely engaging film is the source of its curb appeal: It has heart.  Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A work of American art as classic as it is modern.  Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The first great movie of the summer.  Richard Corliss, Time
"All told, Cars is a knockout.  William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Editor's Note
Talking cars rediscover the quirky originality of middle America in this inventive animated film from the folks at Pixar (TOY STORY, FINDING NEMO). Owen Wilson does the voice of arrogant rookie racecar Lightning McQueen, who winds up stranded in the small desert town of Radiator Springs on his way west to a big showdown. Sentenced to community service after literally tearing up the road in a high-speed chase, at first all Lightning can think of is getting back to the world of corporate sponsorship and merchandising tie-ins he loves so well. Eventually, however, the eccentric residents of Radiator Springs begin to grow on him, especially the attractive lady Porsche lawyer (Bonnie Hunt) and a rusty old tow-truck (Larry the Cable Guy). There's also a hippie Volkswagen (George Carlin), a low-riding T-bird (Cheech Martin) and Paul Newman as the gruff, curmudgeonly Doc Hudson, the town judge who harbors his own checkered-flag past. The story may not be new, but Pixar's precision-engineered animation brilliantly illuminates the town and its surrounding cactus-studded vistas down to the minutest detail, and director/writer John Lasseter keeps the film's satiric wit and generous heart in perfect alignment. Adults in the audience should appreciate the film's celebration of old-school American eccentricity, and the kids will dig all the thunderous grit and high-octane wheel burning. Randy Newman composed the score; James Taylor sings one of the songs.

Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "CARS is family fun, brimming with surprises....A class act all the way. Pixar does it again." 06/15/2006 p.106

Los Angeles Times
"[Powered] by warmth, emotion and good-hearted charm. It offers the kinds of sensations all Hollywood once did, and it makes us remember why those films made us care..." 06/09/2006 p.E1

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "As a technical achievement, CARS is peerless....[The cars] are alive and the team has faithfully crafted an environment for the characters." 06/01/2006 p.38

Box Office
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "CARS is all about shifting to a lower gear, getting out of the fast lane and how the journey in life is its own reward." 07/01/2006 p.62

Sight and Sound
"The voice-cast is given a lift by Paul Newman, whose deep tones dignify his character....Its eye-boggling giant stadiums and desert vistas fill the biggest cinema screen..." 08/01/2006 p.66

Entertainment Weekly
"When it comes to unlikely anthropomorphization, Pixar isn't afraid to raise the bar." -- Grade: A 11/17/2006 p.107

Premiere
"[A]ll of its automobiles brim with personality....The story makes some typically Pixar points on community and friendship, and the design and animation is typically thrilling." 12/01/2006 p.129

Entertainment Weekly
Included in Entertainment Weekly's "Top 10 Films Of The Year" -- "John Lasseter's witty, enchanting, gorgeously designed NASCAR fantasia is a luscious piece of American pop art..." 12/29/2006 p.108

ReelViews 8 of 10
Although Cars is arguably the weakest animated feature to emerge from the virtual drawing board at this successful company, it's also the best animated film to come along since Disney distributed The Incredibles. The flaws in Cars relate to how younger viewers will see the film - it's a little too long and a little too slow. While adults may not mind sitting through "filler," children, with their notoriously short attention spans, may become restless...The humor, as is typical of Pixar, is comprised of jokes aimed at all age ranges. Some of the comedy will go over the heads of younger viewers, but there are plenty of gags for the junior members of the audience. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
The message in "Cars" is simplicity itself: Life was better in the old days, when it revolved around small towns where everybody knew each other, and around small highways like Route 66, where you made new friends, sometimes even between Flagstaff and Winona. This older America has long been much-beloved by Hollywood, and apparently it survives in Radiator Springs as sort of a time capsule...The movie is great to look at and a lot of fun, but somehow lacks the extra push of the other Pixar films. Maybe that's because there's less at stake here, and no child-surrogate to identify with. I wonder if the movie's primary audience, which skews young, will much care about the 1950s and its cars. Maybe they will. - Roger Ebert
