Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn't through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage! Written by Pixar

A sequel that people were totally asking for
14 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let the rabid Cars fans soak in their own self-amusement. Let them play with their Lightning McQueen action figures. But with the extensive line of thoughtful, often endearing films in Pixar's history, Cars 3 is simply further evidence that this franchise is like an unwanted tumor spawned from a library of groundbreaking animations. The plot is too formulaic to spark any true interest. The characters are as stale and basic as usual. The jokes are misguided and the script as a whole just falls flat. But hey, it's better than Cars 2, so it's a good movie! 10 out of 10!!! A+++!!!! Yaayyyy I like Cars!!!! Well, one could say The Phantom Menace is better than Suicide Squad. It's still comparing spoiled milk to rotten apples.

Too serious for children to enjoy, but too simple for adults to be able to appreciate, Cars 3 will likely only satisfy 42-year-old men who are unemployed and enjoy nothing more than rolling around their Hot Wheels.
