Trivia

Director Brian Fee has mentioned that the film is a love letter to racing, and the American way, and is inspired by the Americana you see travelling through the South where every small town has a dirt track. See more »

Goofs

Natalie Certain says that every week, veteran racers retire or get fired to make room for the next generation racers. However, the season was almost over when more next generation racers started to push out the stock cars, so veteran racers leaving every week is impossible. See more »

Quotes

[post-credits scene]
Mater: [singing] My cup holder's happy, my tank is full. My engine's running like a Brahma bull. My bumpers are polished and talk about luck. I just got a date with an ice cream truck.
[Mater laughs as his smartphone rings]
Mater: Huh? Ahh!
[Mater knocks over a pile of tires]
Mater: Shoot. Hey, McQueen, you still there? McQueen? Ugh. Technology!

Destroys the aura of Lightning Mcqueen
25 June 2017 | by zinc-5See all my reviews

The first Cars movie is a classic that will be enjoyed for a long time to come. Cars 3 a has a few major problems. - We don't want to live in or know about whatever 'new reality' this movie has created, where Lightning isn't the fastest car anymore. We especially don't want to know that there is an entire new generation of cars that are faster than him. How depressing is that. - The movie has very little of the heart, soul, and humor of the original. It has a very different feel, with the 'next gen' cars speaking and acting like spoilt millennials. Jackson Storm is a nasty piece of work. - If feels like the point of the movie is to reinforce that 'girls can do anything' (like most movies these days). That's all well and good, but it's not what we paid money to actually go and see. We want to watch a movie about the movie's actual hero and main character, Lightning Mcqueen. And we want to see him win and NOT be depressed, old and slow most of the time.
