I was watching the morning news on yesterday--Good Morning America-- and heard bits and pieces of the review by Joel Seigel about Cars. It sounded good. It is of course by Pixar. What movie was ever bad that was done by Pixar? Not one I can think of. The best ever has to be Finding Nemo. For those interested this is a little bit about the movie. Joel was saying that instead of giving the cars eyes, they made the windshields the eyes. There are no animal features in this one at all either. It sounds pretty good! He even said that Paul Newman should get an Oscar for his perfomance. We shall see.

Lightning McQueen (voice of OWEN WILSON), a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. On route across the country to the big Piston Cup Championship in California to compete against two seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know the town's offbeat characters — including Sally (a snazzy 2002 Porsche voiced by BONNIE HUNT), Doc Hudson (a 1951 Hudson Hornet with a mysterious past, voiced by PAUL NEWMAN), and Mater (a rusty but trusty tow truck voiced by LARRY THE CABLE GUY) — who help him realize that there are more important things than trophies, fame and sponsorship.

The all-star vocal cast also includes free-wheeling performances by racing legend Richard Petty and Cheech Marin. Fueled with plenty of humor, action, heartfelt drama, and amazing new technical feats, CARS is a high octane delight for moviegoers of all ages.

If you want to find out more about the movie, visit the website at: www.carsthemovie.com. I just saw Over the Hedge and it was just okay. The movie itself was beautiful, but the story was just a little weak. The think about that movie is that you have to stay for all the credits. Surprises are there!
