I would give this movie a five out of five stars because it is a movie that touches close to me and I believe that it is a movie that, no matter what your age is, anyone can enjoy this movie. There are parts of this movie that anyone can take from to learn or simply appreciate. I believe that every person can relate, at least a little, to one of the characters.
The major theme of this movie is that you can connect to someone no matter how different you are because in the end we really have more in common than we usually think. This movie showed me that people who come from different places and seem to be so different but in the end, if you pull together, that group can make something great. I have noticed that we seem to bypass things that use to be so important because it takes too long. Personally, I enjoy taking the long ride (sight seeing) because I like to take a step back and see what most never will because they are too worried about time. Why does it matter if you have "all the time in the world" if you do nothing with it. I could not imagine going through life worried only about the little moment, like Lightening McQueen in the beginning, because then you will never enjoy the small things, as Mator shows.
The characters in this movie, though it may be a cartoon, remind me of many people that I know. My friends and family could make up the fine people of Radiator Springs because it is so accurate for the people in this area. I believe that the characters are very believable; in fact, I learned that the characters are loosely based on real people. My husband reminds me a lot of Doc because he knows more than he lets on but he will also show people what he can do when he feels that he needs to. My husband works his normal job, does mechanic work on the side, and is always there for people when they are in need.
The music in this movie has a way of speaking to the people as they watch the movie. I very rarely feel a connection to a movie because not many movies can capture the feeling of living in an area like the Ozarks. There are people who come here and believe that we are nothing but simple rednecks who know nothing because of how we speak or do certain things. It is important for people to realize that just because the people in smaller towns may do things different doesn't meant that it is wrong.
"Cars" is a movie that can touch the lives of many. I believe that this movie is something that can show people a new way of thinking when they see someone who may be different. Even those people that you see as "bad" can change if given the chance and shown the beauty in what is around them.
