Brash and arrogant rookie stockcar racer Lightning McQueen (a typically laconic Owen Wilson), gets lost on route to a championship race in California and winds up in sleepy backwater town Radiator Springs. The town's residents, including a seemingly bad tempered old time racer Doc (a gruff Paul Newman), peppy Porsche Sally (Bonnie Hunt) and simple but innocent tow-truck Mater (Larry The Cable Guy), help the young charge learn `valuable life lessons' and the importance of community and friendship.

Pixar have ruled the roost on the animated movie market for the best part of a decade now, but with the likes of Monster House, Over the Hedge and Ice Age 2 jostling for a slice of this lucrative pie, is Pixar's latest number one on this years starting grid?

To set your mind at rest, Cars is great fun. It's funny, good natured and displays, in each frame, bundles of imagination that once again puts many live action movies to shame. John Lasseter sets out his stall early on, commencing with a thrilling racing sequence that introduces McQueen and his familiar neon lit world via a stunning set piece before relocating to the broken down confines of forgotten town, Radiator Springs.

Radiator Springs itself is the kind of gentile town that's often remembered with hazy nods to 60's Americana and its inhabitants are struggling to relive the glory days. When Lightning arrives in town causing a whole heap of damage along the way they see it as a reminder of better times and the young hot rod gets a glimpse of what he is missing from his pampered lifestyle. The pace slows drastically through the town sequences and the film itself stutters, suffering from the fact that a movie centred more on the racing rather than Car's well intentioned `message' would be far more exciting.

There has been a generally cool reception from critics for Pixar's latest.

Many felt the story stale and the characters not up to much.

The story is of a cocky young race car called lightning McQueen who needs to learn a lesson in manners and caring for others. To that end he winds up getting caught speeding through a dusty old forgotten town somewhere on route 66. His punishment is a weeks hard labour and while there he meets and learns to appreciate the locals.

The story is simple but then this is a film for little 'uns mostly so what do you expect? At first the fantastic animation captures the attention along with the fun to be had seeing cars behaving like humans,( at the racetrack the fans in the stands are all cars, using their headlights to make a mexican wave), but 15 minutes in the glitzy bright animation and novelty begin to wear off and you're left feeling that it's going to be a bit of a disappointment.

However this is not the case as once Mcqueen, (Owen Wilson doing a great job of making him a bit of a whiney & spoilt so and so ), reaches the backwater town of radiator springs things improve dramatically.

Here we are introduced to funny and likeable characters that carry the movie. Paul newman is amongst the voices of the townsfolk as an ex-racer with a seemingly grumpy attitude but the standout is the delapidated towtruck Mater,(tow-mater, geddit?), a hilarious hick whose presence makes this film so much better.

In truth the story and what happens are not of much importance, rather it's the inter-reaction of characters in this small but happy town that makes Cars worth while.

Be warned that it does run on probably a bit too long for very young children.

Cars, the number one talked about summer blockbuster. But did it reach its full potential? Did it provide laughs and thrills like other Pixar classics such as Finding Nemo and Toy Story. For me, it did. I found the story, the scenery, the characters and even the soundtrack incredible. Although most critics gave it at least 4 stars, many said the story line was a little 'rusty'. But I found it was perfect and was a simple yet well thought out story that is funny, charming and touching in places. So although it wasn't the summer blockbuster people were expecting, for me it was one of the best films I've seen this year.

Both me and my 6 years old daughter we loved this movie - although of course for different reasons.

She appreciated the very idea of talking cars and then the races, Mator the "red-neck" car, etc. I was impressed by the animation - this is for the moment the most technically advanced animation movie I ever saw ("Happy Feet" did as well) - and the more adult oriented humouristic parts, like the Porsche girl who left Los Angeles to find peace in a small town; an old town doctor, called Doctor in Internal Combustion; the cars going to the toilet - guess which line is advancing faster..., a rivalry between a "Peace and Love" old van and a retired sergeant who is of course a jeep, a Japanese female journalist who is a gorgeous little Honda, etc, etc.).

The final scenes in which they show fragments of older Pixar movies (like Sully and Mike Wazowski stranded in Himalayas) played by cars (the Yeti being an enormous snow tractor) are also a delight.

I just can not uderstand some of very critical (and mean) reviews below - I loved this movie and, more important, my daughter loved it too. She insisted on sleeping on a pillow with Ligthning McQueen for months after that.... If you didn't see it - go and get it. Pixar is getting better at every next movie so I just can not wait to see "Ratatouille"....
