The film tells the story of cocky racecar Lightning McQueen’s fateful ride through the town of Radiator Springs. Speeding on his way to a big race, he crashes into town, destroying the belongings of many citizens. In order to make up for his error, the roadster is ordered to do community service. Initially averse to working, McQueen learns to respect the cars of Radiator Springs and bonds with them before making his way to the race.
The film features the voice talents of Owen Wilson, Paul Newman, Bonnie Hunt, George Carlin, Michael Keaton and Larry the Cable Guy.
Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers wrote that director John Lasseter “dishes out visual miracles with a quiet confidence that doesn't need to show off.
The G-rated film runs just under two hours. It grossed more than $461 million at the box office.
