Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
Fast paced and charming but not quite as good as the best that Pixar has produced, nevertheless it's still enjoyably entertaining.

Lightning McQueen ((voiced by Owen Wilson) is a cocky red race car that gets lost on Route 66 on the way to the Piston Cup Race in California. He gets stuck in Radiator Springs, where he has a run-in with the judge Doc Hudson (Paul Newman), gets some help from a tow truck (Larry, the Cable Guy) and falls for a sexy Porche Carrera (Bonnie Hunt). All of these cars, and lots of others in the dusty little town, have surprises in store for the arrogant speedster. And maybe he can teach them a thing or two as well.

Pixar's latest computer animated movie was directed by John Lasseter ("Toy Story") and it is really just a wistful look back at those good old days when people enjoyed driving on country roads that took them right through small towns in the days before the interstates were built and the towns were left to rot.

The only problem is that the plot is extremely predictable, and even the lessons are pretty obvious. But putting those negatives aside, the story is sweet and often quite funny, and there are extremely strong characters voiced charmingly by an excellent cast. The animation is spectacular with a landscape design that is truly magnificent, cleverly working in car details where you least expect them. Witty touches abound and Randy Newman's score includes a number of inventive and tureful Western songs. And there are lots of hilarious comedy bits that continue right through the closing credits which will leave you chuckling and charmingly entertained.
