QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Dramedy: A famous anthropomorphic race car must contend with having grown older and not being able to defeat younger and faster competitors.
PLOT:
In a world populated by anthropomorphic cars, trucks and other vehicles, Lightning McQueen (voice of OWEN WILSON) was once the top race car in the tournament circuit, having been tutored by the late Doc Hudson. But as the years have passed by, so has Lightning been on the track by newer and faster models such as rookie sensation Jackson Storm (voice of ARMIE HAMMER). Following the retirement of some of his contemporary rivals and recovering from a bad crash in his last race, some wonder if it's time for Lightning to ease up on the pedal and likewise retire.

He wants no part of that, although his newest sponsor, mud flap king Sterling (voice of NATHAN FILLION), would rather have him promoting his products. Nonetheless, and giving him one last shot before entering the world of product placement, Sterling assigns his top trainer, Cruz Ramirez (voice of CRISTELA ALONZO), to work with Lightning and get him up to speed in order to compete with the likes of Jackson and other newer race cars.

When that doesn't work, Lightning eventually seeks out Smokey (voice of CHRIS COOPER), Hud's mentor from long ago. Utilizing old school techniques, he starts to whip the veteran back into shape, all while Lightning's good friend, Mater (voice of LARRY THE CABLE GUY), tries to keep him motivated and Cruz realizes her former aspirations of being a racer herself are starting to resurface. With the big race coming up, all concerned wonder whether Lightning has what it takes to compete in this newer, faster world of racing.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They probably will if they're fans of the previous "Cars" movies from Pixar.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: G
Presumably for not containing material to warrant a higher rating.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
