At the end of the first race at the start of the movie, the twins Mia and Tia flash their headlights at McQueen. This is a sly wink to adult racing fans, who know that "flashing their headlights" is the term for when female fans lift their shirts and show their breasts to the racers. See more »

Okay, here we go. Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, forty-two losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast? Maybe I should have had breakfast? Brekkie could be good for me. No, no, no, focus. Speed. Faster than fast, quicker than quick. I am Lightning.

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.
