Sex & Nudity

  • Innuendo: When Mia and Tia speak to Lightning after the first race, they flash their headlights at him, a reference to breast flashing.
  • Innuendo: A reporter asks if McQueen was in a magazine called "Cargirl," which is a spoof of Playgirl.
  • Sally has a "tramp stamp" style tattoo on her bumper. Lightning makes a tongue in cheek remark about it.
  • There's a scene where Lightning accidentally walks in on the Sheriff getting his undercarriage checked. Possibly a reference to a "prostate exam" or a "colonoscopy."

Violence & Gore

  • In a nightmare sequence, we see Chick Hicks get chopped up by Frank.
  • In the opening race, Chick Hicks causes a huge pileup with the other racers in an attempt to stop Lightning from beating him. Lightning makes it through the wreck effortlessly, but a lot of the racers involved in the wreck are badly injured, with one of the cars being really crumpled up and leaking oil. Most of this is played for laughs though.
  • While all characters are vehicles, they do some pretty raucous like hit each other, careening off walls, trees, cones, tires and crash.
  • In a dream, Lightning imagines himself as a jet fighter firing rockets at advancing War of the Worlds-like alien machines, which explode when hit by his weaponry, in his own movie, "Lightning Storm".


  • In the movie there is words like :"You Idiot" "You Fool" "You're Stupid" "You Moron" "What an Idiot" "Hillbilly Hell" Tractors are so dumb"
  • It has words like : "You Idiot" "You Fool" "You're Stupid" "You Moron" "What an Idiot" "Hillbilly Hell" Tractors are so dumb"
  • McQueen says to the group at a gas station that Doc Hudson won Piston cups. Mater does a spit take with oil in his mouth and says "he did WHAT in his cup?!" It's a good joke but relies on the viewer to know what "piss" means and interpret the word "piss".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • lightning says that racecars don't need headlights since the road is always lit, another automobile replies "so is brother but he still needs headlights", could be a drug reference.
  • The VW Bus is presumed to be on the drugs throughout the movie. He's this movies interpretation of a stereotypical hippy from the 60's and 70's.
