Lightning McQueen sets out to prove to a new generation of racers that he's still the best race car in the world 

I had never seen a Cars movie before; nothing against it, just never got around to it. Yet, when I was asked to review this movie, I wanted to give it a chance. So I walked in there not knowing much about this story other than it's about a race car. I must admit that I enjoyed this movie very much. Was it Disney formula? Yes, it was, but it worked.

The main plot of the movie is that Lightning McQueen is getting older and there's a whole new generation of super modern race cars that are faster than him and him getting pressured to retire, and him not wanting to. Can he prove that he can continue to race and still be the fastest car in the world? That's what starts the whole storyline and then we find out what he ends up deciding, which is actually the most unexpected turn.

The movie pokes a bit of fun at aging, but also at Millennials. It was done well, however, because it wasn't overdone and it was also justified in a way. They also would make up for the fun they'd poke at either generation by showing the worth of each one in different topics or situations. Like, for example, how experience makes you wiser and teaches you how to handle certain situations in life, and how doing things in reality is better than virtual reality (nothing tops reality for me either). It has some important lessons to teach, especially to these new generations growing up with so much technology, and gadgets, and the internet. It also is, in my opinion, a lesson not being taught enough in the media to these new generations.

Do I recommend this movie? Yes, I think it's a movie enjoyable to kids of all ages (from age 3-infinity), and that it has its funny moments, its cool moments, and its moments in which they start to get mushy, but they don't completely let them go that way. It's enjoyable and it is fun. I am not sure how it ties in with the other movies, since -as I said -I haven't seen them, but others have said that this one ties in with the first one, but not so much with the second one. In other words, part 3 kind of saves the franchise.

Cars 3 is out in theaters today, go check it out with your little ones (whether that be your kids, your friends, your spouse, etc).
