CARS (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

—original, creative, great animated entertainment—works as a Bravo! film. Listen for the voices of Paul Newman, Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Cheech Marin, Richard Petty, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the casting voices. Terrific direction by John Lasseter and Joe Ranft. This is a ‘do not miss it’ film that makes that perfect addition to the family home video library. Leaves a warm afterglow after viewing.
