I'll be watching it at home when the DVD comes out.

I have a policy against watching 'kids' oriented movies in the theater. I can barely enjoy myself watching R rated movies with the few kids in there. Like the time we watched Jurassic Park and about a half dozen times during the movie unescorted young children (who's parents were more concerned with watching the movie than their child's safety) went to the bathroom. That was bad enough, but what was worse was that without fail they ALL tried to exit via the door to the outside, filling the room with blinding mid-day sun and then LEFT THE DOOR OPEN when they turned to use the right exit. Our last few attempts to watch movies full of kids has resulted in both Karen and I not enjoying ourselves one bit.

Mind you, it's not the kids that drive us up the wall - it's the parents and the seeming total lack of care and/or discipline. If I wanted to watch a bunch of kids running around and screaming at each other - I'd go to a playground.

I totally hear you on that one!!

But for this movie I'm going to risk it...

If needed I'll speak to the parents... or management... I've done it before... I'll do it again.

Fun's fun but they are not the only ones in the theater.

I did not read the credits at the end of the movie due to watching the extra clips and we talked about who was who at dinner, trying to determine whos voice was Doc and others. Get this, I just found out that Doc Hudson was Paul Newman and the Fillmore the VW microbus was George Carlin.
The licence plate on the front of Fillmore was the numbers to Carlins birthday.

This movie ROCKs. :thumbsup:

Update: Wish I had known this info before the movie.

CARS' Bench-Racing Secrets
Plus: Nine gearhead facts to amaze your friends and kids



Here are some things you should know about Cars before you start your engines:

>> LIGHTNING McQUEEN is the main character. A pure Pixar design, McQueen has a 750-hp V8 engine, is rear-wheel drive with coilover shocks and tubular frame, A-arm front suspension with a solid rear axle. Top end? A claimed 200 mph. McQueen’s sponsor is Rust-eze. The car wears 14 paint variants throughout the movie ranging from subtly different amounts of dirt and dust to the completely new paint job near the end.

Like all first-year racers, he wears a yellow rookie stripe on the back bumper.

McQueen’s name is in honor of Glenn McQueen, a Pixar animator who worked on the film and died during its production.

>> TOW TRUCK MATER’S license plate is A113—the room number in which John Lasseter took his first animation classes at California Institute of the Arts. A113 is hidden in many Pixar films.

>> DOC HUDSON’S office is featured in one scene. Note the automotive reference to the doctor’s Hippocratic symbol. Nice touch. The engine sound of Doc Hudson was taped using both a standard 1951 Hudson Hornet coupe and a vintage racing Hornet. And Doc’s paint color is direct from a Hudson Motor Car company paint chip palate.

>> DOES CHICK HICKS remind you of the Skoal Bandit? Chick’s side is plastered with 334 decals.

>> THE KING, a 1970 Plymouth Superbird, wears Dinoco Blue, a custom color created for Richard Petty. The King and Petty share something else: the No. 43.

Nine Gearhead facts to amaze your friends and kids
1 The timing of the lights on Flo’s diner matches the firing sequence of a V8.

2 The ceiling fans used in traffic court are radiator cooling fans.

3 The bug sounds you hear are the engine sounds of VW Beetles—Bugs—sped up.

4 The courthouse’s circular front is modeled after a MotoMeter, a gauge placed on the radiator of older cars to see when they overheated.

5 Willys Butte, the spot where Doc Hudson and Lightning McQueen race, is inspired by a 1939 Willys-Overland hood ornament.

6 The mountain range behind Radiator Springs (tucked in Carburetor County) is a series of Cadillac tailfins identical to those of 1956 to 1963 Caddys from left to right. The most iconic, the 1959 tailfin, is in the center. Looking at the top of the tailfins, you see taillights and brake lights built into each mountain, each year with its own design.

7 Note the condensation trail pattern in the sky.

8 The racing posters on the walls at Casa Della Tires show images of the most desirable racing Ferraris of the day. Can you identify them?

9 Now two questions for race fans out there: What is the significance of the Mario Andretti character, and whose voice does the Ferrari F430 use?

nice find Stan...

I actually thought LIGHTNING McQUEEN was inspired from Steve McQueen :D guess not.

Me too. :cool:

I think I know the answer to one of the two question;
What is the significance of the Mario Andretti character?

In 1967, Andretti's passion for racing saw him compete and win in the Daytona 500 stock car race, driving a Ford Fairlane #11.

the F430 was Michael Schumacher, I think. That movie is chock full of surprises, I guarantee more than is listed.

Yes, that is definitely Michael Schumacher doing the voice of the Ferrari F430 that comes into Luigi's(Tony Shalhoub aka Monk) shop.

Saw this movie last night and damn it was good. Jennifer and I had some good laughs, and at times it seemed like we were the last ones laughing in the theater. I liked the end where they had the voice of the Firetruck(Cliff from Cheers) seeing the character he played in all Pixar's previous movies.

On a side note....they previewed a LOT of cartoon movies coming out :eek:
