High octane entertainment!
I must start by saying my expectations for this film were set very high due to the reviews I have been reading.
In a word. Extraordinary! The film starts out with the fast pace world of racing, very good graphics, Pixar/Disney keep improving on an art that seems at it's height of performance, and the realism really draws you into the whole story, the textures are tremendous. Absolutely first rate editing.
The story has a great deal of heart and nostalgia, while some parts are a tad bit predictable, on the whole it's got a lot of surprised. The characters are warm and enduring throughout the entire film.
This film is a bit longer than many animations at just under 2 hours, and it keeps it pace well. My biggest thrill was the nostalgia and the warmth of the story, like I said it has a lot of heart and soul. This is a film meant to appeal only to children either, adults will find it just as entertaining, maybe even more so.
I don't want to give it away, go see this film today, if you thought Finding Nemo was warm and wonderful, you going to be overly joyed to see Cars.

Make that 5 for 5 for Pixar in 8 years!
Outstanding! Disney and Pixar are a perfect match now for the 5th time straight!!
This movie has everything. The best digital animations to date, the story is classic yet intropective with a grand parental charm and wit coupled with brave and ingenious relationships, genuine heart-felt characters and a clean sweeping pace to the story.
It was a tremendous 2 hours of movie magic at its very best. I highly recommend this film. I can't wait for the dvd we will buy it and cherish it for years just as we do with Bugs life, the Toys Story's and Monsters Inc. have entertained us as well. This is a new level though, the water surface is incredible and real looking. New fresh look and feel for Pixar and Disney. My three year old and my 11 year old as my wife and I loved this film!!!
This is by far the best yet from Pixar/Disney. Thanks for raising the bar guys! A definate 10 out of 10!!!
-can I see it again, -please?!
The Jungle Book 2 (2003)
Leave me longing for the original!
Hey, lets face it - topping Phil Harris and his classic jungle jive in the original 1967 version of The Jungle Book is to say the least improbably. But don't get me wrong here, this movie is ok on it's own merits. If you have a preschooler(s) that have yet to be introduced to the original version - this is more than adequate to whet your whistle.
It's a very classic Disney animation film. Good story, good music and good singing all to make your li'l ones enjoy this film for what it is. What this film is not is a fair sequel to the original. Their can be no real sequel for the original, that's because we no longer have Phil Harris, Sabastian Cabot, and Louis Prima to voice the top three headliners of the original. These three make the magic of the first that John Goodman and Anders Byström simple can not possible match in the second.
So do yourself favor, save your money at the box-office on this one and buy the DVD or Video when it comes out and let the kiddies dance their little hearts out in the family room where TOO MANY of the Disney movies these days should make their premier screening I'm afraid.
Ol' Disney and Co. is into the manufacturing of their films faster than tinkerbell can get from the dresser to the window these days. Not enough heart and soul, instead it's all go-go-go! I hope some day they realize that quality beats quantity at the movies. This one gets a minor 4 out of 10 stars from me.

"I like movies like this, -even if it's a bit corny"
Big capitalist are trying to demolish an old building to build a skyscraper, and the tenants aren't leaving. Just when things look hopeless some little helpers from the cosmos "give birth" to a solution that does entertain you. Great special effects for the times. It's not Oscar material, but I find these kind of movies with caring compassionate characters with a strong will to survive the odds. The scene in the diner when the "helpers from beyond" is really fun. The music is good and it takes you back to a simpler time when people where more friendly and courtious toward one another. -Five people, an older couple dealing with the finality of a lost son (Tandy is dandy as a woman who is a bit senile and stuck in denial), A young couple struggling to adapt to their desires to be with "someone". And a quiet ex-boxer who is withdrawn, yet he seems to be more in-touch with the visitors. The ending is a real cheering fest.
This movie has the simple message of hope and the desire to live on WITH progress. It's a good, -feel good movie! Rent it, you'll be glad you did. *** out of possible *****
