At first Bass slides up beside the little girl playing the same familiar tune as always, but when ambitious newcomer Treble adds a catchy string accompaniment the competition really starts to get interesting. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Cars A pedal-to-the-metal race car determined to prove his worth on the tracks discovers that life isn't always about crossing the finish line first in Toy Story director John Lasseter's mechanically minded tale of friendship and loyalty. Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) may be just a rookie, but he's convinced that he can realize his dream of zooming by the checkered flag if he can only make it to California in time to compete in the upcoming Piston Cup Championship. When Lightning takes a detour into the slow-moving, Route 66 town of Radiator Springs, however, it begins to appear as if his shot at the big time has effectively stalled out. Of course, Lightning's exciting cross-country trek wasn't all for naught, and after befriending such quirky Radiator Springs residents as Sally the Porsche (voice of Bonnie Hunt), Doc Hudson (voice of Paul Newman), and Mater the Tow Truck (voice of Larry the Cable Guy), the eager young racer learns that sometimes life is more about the voyage than the outcome of the race. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Mater and the Ghostlight Loveable tow truck Mater may be rusty on the outside, but his engine is still as sturdy as the day he rolled off of the assembly line as he sets out to explore the ghostly blue light that's preventing the citizens of Radiator Springs from getting a good night's sleep. Originally included as a bonus feature on the DVD release of Pixar's Cars, this computer animated short features one of the film's most popular characters in an all-new adventure. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
