Saw it today with my kids and I must say it was awesome. Well worht the money it took to tkae three kids to the movies.

If this movie make sless than $300 million domestic, I would be stunned. The writing is so good and the animation is excellent.

A must see this summer. Adults will ove it just as much as the kids.



Well, that's just drunk talk! Sweet, beautiful drunk talk....

Amazing animation. Just stunning.

Story...One of Pixar's lesser efforts. Been done before. But not horrible either. Still worth the bother.

I dug the short as well as the trailer for Pixar's next film "Ratatouille". The movies at the drive-in during the credits were awesome.

Stay through the entire credits.

I'm told if you have a theatre near you doing digital projection, see it there. But the 35mm print was extremely impressive too.

More proof that Pixar can do no wrong. And even if it is a lesser effort than their best, it's still an exceptional movie.

The movie itself was a great memorial to the late Joe Ranft (co-writer of the movie, and the voice of Red the fire engine). What's creepy though is that he died in a car accident.

I look forward to what Disney/Pixar will do together now that they are one in the future.

We saw it last night, appropriately enough at a drive-in, as a surprise for the kids! It was a double bill with Shaggy Dog, which was alright...more for the kids.

As for Cars? We loved it! The animation was fantastic, so glad that Pixar is on board with Disney. Loved the short too!

I was worried going in that "Larry the Cable Guy" would get to be a little overbearing, but he was used appropriately. The NASCAR in-jokes were cute too.

As a side note, the drive-in we went to had a "Saturday Morning" horror show host type guy. They did a bit on the history of drive-ins. Anybody recognize the name, Dr. Cryptosis? Good old corny fun.

Anyhow that was our take! We plan on owning it when it comes out.

One of the local reviewers called it "Doc Hollywood with cars instead of people." Valid description?

Got to check it out today. It's probably one of the worst of the Pixar movies (nowhere near the quality of Finding Nemo or The Incredibles), BUT that doesn't mean it wasn't a damn good film. It still brought the funny and it's worth catching in the theater. Pixar's magic is starting to fade slightly, but I'm still certain that their best is yet to come.

The next Pixar film looks to be Ratatouille, which from the looks of the teaser looks like another winner. Can't wait to catch that one.

At the end, I thought it was merely good, but the sequence during the credits made this one worth more than the price of admission. That and the opening short is worth a look-see AND a download (I'm not sure if iTunes has it, but they should)!

EDIT: It appears that iTunes DOES have it available. It's called "One Man Band" and it's available for $1.99!

As a Route 66 nut, I'm totally biased, but the film is damned awesome. It is a step down from the last two Pixar efforts, but it's better than reviews had me thinking it might be.

Saw it Friday night with the girl at a Wehrenberg in O'Fallon, IL. Two tickets, one large popcorn, one large Wild Cherry Pepsi. Bill: $27.

Saw it Saturday night with the girl, her brother, and my soon-to-be parents-in-law at a small two-screen in Hillsboro, IL. Five tickets, five medium popcorns (with three $1 refills) and five medium colas (with three $1 refills.) Bill: $31.

For the curious: the dandy Route 66 News has this post detailing some of the film's connections with the Mother Road and how it influenced the movie, showing how much heart and research Pixar pours into their work.

Just took my kids to see it. They loved it, and so did I. But I definately agree about the Doc Hollywood comparison. Still a really good movie, though.

The dunkettes took me for Father's Day yesterday and they howled with laughter and haven't stopped talking about it since. The story was what it was and the CGI was hot. I enjoyed it almost as much as they did. Mrs. dunk was jealous so she is going to see it next weekend with the dunkettes. It will be purchased on DVD the day it comes out in the stores.

My troop took me to see it as well. We especially enjoyed Mater and "clifie" enjoying all his other Pixar performances at the drive in.

I wonder if this film will have more Nascar Celebs in it than Talledega Nights - coming up later this year. Petty, Earnhardt, Waltrip...



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I give it thumbs down. A step down from even Curious George and Chicken Little. The first show was sold out so I waited for over an hour for the next packed house. The preview with the kids eating worms was nasty (think Zack and Cody meets Fear Factor).

The movie was as much Doc Hollywood as Last Samurai/Sweet Home Alabama/etc. Almost every movie plot contains some variation of "stranger comes to town"/"man goes on a journey" and this was no exception. With standard movie cliches, catchphrases, merchandise tie-ins, and car chases lasting half and hour too long.

They could've made it a little clever by taking shots at Al Gore or something.

We saw it today and loved it. The animation was outstanding and I love listening to Owen Wilson. No, I don't know why.

Five tickets, 1 large popcorn and three drinks: $24.


PS - My kids were scared shitless by the trailer for Monster House. I guess we won't be seeing that one.

Finally was able to catch this last week and after having seen the last number of Pixar films on DVD rather than in a theatre, it was nice to experience watching 'Cars' in a more proper environment.

Overall, I enjoyed it. The story was certainly paint by numbers but the characters were engaging enough that it made waiting for the eventual payoff less painful.

I'm glad Mater lost his hood again and Paul Newman is still money in the bank.
