This movie is dumb. As far as Pixar's pictures go, they were always a bit too convenient to be considered masterful works but the enjoyment never really came from the plot or the climax but rather the rest 99% that concludes the those films. But "Cars" is not only guilty of a thinly written plot but also doesn't support a usual cast of charismatic characters, leaving it feel like it was made only to sell toys.
Well, I don't get why everyone hates this so much. I thought it was very warm and soulful and it made me cry TWICE! I have to say I do prefer Toy Story and Ratatouille but I didn't think it was bad at all. It's funny, emotional and I don't think it's strictly a kids film at all. I enjoyed it overall.
Not one of Pixar's best, but still a cut above the usual animated family fare. The animation is excellent, as usual, but the story is predictable and filled with stock characters. There were also a few too many annoying country-pop songs on the soundtrack. I actually hated it for the first 20 minutes or so, but it won me over eventually.
