The insects seen in the film are in the shape of '60s-era Volkswagen Beetles. "Bug" is the popular nickname of that model car. See more »
In the courtroom there is a Latin motto over the doorway, that should read "Justitiae via strata veritate" (The way of justice is paved with truth). But the first word is misspelled as "Justitae." See more »

During credits, Mack (John Ratzenberger) watches car-versions of earlier Pixar hits, commenting on the fine actor in each scene before realizing it's the same actor (John Ratzenberger) playing different characters in each movie. There is an additional scene at end of credits, as with last year's Chronicles Of Narnia. See more »
I had my doubts. I knew that Pixar would fail this time around. No way were they going to pull this off for a seventh time.
I was very, very wrong.
I went to see a special screening of "Cars" a few weeks ago, and this movie blew me away. The animation is gorgeous, the story brings a smile to your face, and you can't help falling in love with all of the colorful characters. It definitely has that genuine Pixar "heart" that you rarely see in any other CGI film. At first I thought the movie would be centered around a lot of NASCAR-like racing, but it really wasn't, much to my surprise (and pleasure). This movie is definite Pixar gold. I absolutely loved it.
Although I don't want to give any spoilers away, I will say that my favorite scene would have to be when Mater drags McQueen out to do a bit of "Tractor Tipping". The whole theater was filled with laughter. Heck, it even got some laughs out of me, which is rare when it comes to a kid's movie.
Be there on opening night. This is movie is worth all of your time and money.
