We were sitting in the sitting room and found Cars on the TV, missed the first 5 minutes or so but doesn’t appear to have been anything serious. It’s not the kind of movie I’d rent or pick to watch, but it’s also the kind of movie I know I’ll probably enjoy if I do watch it.

Cars is the story of a cocky little race car who discovers maybe his life is shallow, and ends up turning it around and coming good.

There’s nothing surprising in the story, but the characters are great, even if they’re cliched, and the voice acting really brings them all to life. After only a very short time I had totally forgotten I was watching computer animation, it’s very accomplished and provides a very accessible platform for the show. There are a few laugh out loud moments (tractor tipping) and some tender moments and it has a nice glowing happy ending feel. A fun movie, worth watching once.
