Nothing exceptional but I am still moved just thinking about that ending.

If you can detach your noggin from the proceedings, there are definitely bright spots.

A movie that aims to reach the hearts and minds of its pre-teen target demographic with a tale about the perils of retirement.

Cars 3 could make a rental download for a rainy family holiday, but the imaginative spark has gone.

Corporate synergy, as they say, is a cruel mistress.

The final chapter of the trilogy has saved the best for last and will at least deflect the most serious concerns of those who think this series has taken too many extra laps.

Onscreen and in the audience, youth will be served.

It's a reasonably diverting, somewhat sluggish attempt to reinstall the "heart" of the first installment.
June 16, 2017
It's all well and good for the under-12s, but this movie never packs the kind of emotional punch we know Pixar is capable of.
June 16, 2017
We get a lot of repetitive racetrack scenes - only a demolition derby stands out for the inventiveness of its animation - and a familiar message about believing in yourself.

"Cars 3" hums along the track, and while its heart and humor could use minor tune-ups, it does enough visually to earn a checkered flag and keep this franchise from the scrapheap - for now, at least.

While the third Cars lap is an improvement over the zero-depth spy spoofery of the second film, it's not very convincing when it tries to peddle the sense of an ending.

This warmly sentimental G-rated film about facing new realities and recapturing lost dreams has, despite its relatively adult story line, a beguilingly effortless feeling to it, as if it had nothing to prove.
June 15, 2017
[Cars 3] feels like the series, at the end of the road, is running on fumes of nostalgia for its earliest self.
June 15, 2017
Cars 3 is a lovely, clever and entertaining generational tale with tons of heart, a simple and effective storyline, wonderful candy-colored visuals and winning voice work from the talented cast of returning regulars and welcome newcomers.

"Cars 3" feels like it may be time for a trade-in.
