Star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.
Larry the Cable Guy,
It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they're hurtled from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets his father-in-law.
Dusty Crophopper is a little cropduster plane with a fear of heights and a crazy dream of being a racer. While his friends need convincing, Dusty gets the training he needs from Skipper, a veteran fighter, and qualifies for the Wings Across the World race. In the event, Dusty finds competitors who soon learn that there is something special about this underdog as he is tested to his physical and emotional limits. In doing so, Dusty soon finds enemies, and more importantly friends, who are inspired by his dream. In the face of all obstacles, the winner of this air race will be anyone's guess.Written by

The F/A-18 squadron featured in the movie is the "Jolly Wrenchers," based on VFA-103 "Jolly Rogers." During one scene in the movie, the planes are chanting "Victory." "Victory" is the call sign used by VFA-103 pilots. See more »
In Skipper's flashback, a Jolly Wrencher sees an enemy ship and Skipper calls him Jigsaw 2 when he has a 3 painted on his side. Often an airplane's radio call sign is different from its visual identification number. See more »
Are you tired? You have been flying through my mind nonstop!
And why would I be tired from flying through such a teeny-tiny space, hmm?

While Pixar was able to make movies that were able to appeal to adults too (not only kids), it seems this Disney rip on "Cars" does not care that much about that. Cars itself was one of the weaker Pixar movies, which is not saying that much because it still was above average. This is a bit weaker than that though.
We get through the motions more or less without emotion. Kids will or might lap it up as it is. But adults will have issues caring for the main character or anybody else for that matter. It checks every story point it has to, but that is something you notice more like a passing of signs on the road. Show it to the kids, but don't expect to like it yourself
