My wife and daughter dragged me to this movie last Friday. I really wanted to see something else because I wasn't too keen on talking cars 'n stuff - thought it would be waaaay too cartoony for me.
Boy was I surprised. Went into the movie with bit of an attitude, came out really liking it. It helps to be a car nut, and in particular a musclecar nut. There was lots of little "background" things and I'm sure I missed a lot of 'em, so I'll have to get the DVD to pick them out. I was thrilled seeing obvious things like Richard Petty'* car as "The King" and landscapes that looked like radiator caps, front clips, hood ornaments, etc. I won't say anymore 'cause I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone, but keep an eye out for little things like that!
At least none of the cars were sitting in easy chairs and dialing telephones with their tire.
It wasn't THAT animated. I enjoyed it.
