This has been one of my favorite animated movies since it came out. Last year I watched it with my son and he is now obsessed with it. He is 3 and has watched it so many times he is quoting parts of the movie. I think he has about 30 "favorite" parts! When watching the movie he has to take his cars and reenact what is happening during the race at the beginning and then has to gather his tractors to tip them over during that part. I love that this is something that we can watch and enjoy together.
We "rented" this movie mostly for my son who has become obsessed with Mater, the tow truck, for unclear reasons. Although the movie was really for him, I really enjoyed it. We watched it twice in our 3-day rental period, and I thought it was a great story. Similar to most other Pixar movies, the story line was enjoyable for both children and adults. I thought the "message" was cute as well.
The movie was definitely a G-rated movie, and I felt appropriate for my almost 3 year old. There was some action but there weren't any "scary" scenes. I will happily watch this movie again.
And I agree with my son, Mater the tow truck is awesome.
My child has been obsessed with McQueen & Mater since long before I bought the movie for him. At 2.5, I doubted he would sit through a full-length movie, but for Cars, he does. And then some. We watch this movie any/every time I allow him to have a choice of watching TV. Oh... and when we aren't watching TV, we're reading the books. Cause yes, Cars comes in book form too.
Overall, I love this movie -- especially for the messages about the best things in life not always being money and fame. Taking time to slow down and enjoy the simple things. I also like the way they become friends and McQueen learns to think of others and do nice things that matter to his friends.
That said, I don't love some of the language. There are several instances of, "What an IDIOT!" in the movie, which I don't like at all. Why do they have to resort to name-calling when they're angry? Those same moments would lose nothing if they were punctuated by, "This STINKS!"...
