Cars: Lightning McQueen and Paul Newman
The Land Before Time" and you will be just blown away. The cars are "people" that talk and do everything else that people do. Once you accept that, which might take a few minutes, then you can sit back and enjoy a truly outstanding tale about a hotshot race driver and how he learns some difficult but much-needed lessons about life.
While traveling to California for the final race of the Piston Cup against The King and Chick Hicks, Lightning McQueen accidentally damages the road of the small town Radiator Springs (name most likely taken from Colorado Springs) and is sentenced to repair it. He has to work hard, but fixes things to the town's satisfaction. Along the way, he finds friendship and love in the simple locals. He changes his values during his stay in the small town and becomes a true winner.
Owen Wilson, Paul Newman and Bonnie Hunt (of all people) carries this film way past ordinary animation. If you know much of anything about NASCAR or the history of auto racing in general, you will be shocked (as I was) by the attention to detail about racing cars of the past. That The King Richard Petty himself gets in a few words here and there just adds to the majesty of this film.
