Cars is a 2006 computer-animation comedy movie. The movie stars the voices of Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Paul Newman, and Larry the Cable Guy. The movie received a box office of $461 million from their production budget of $120 million. Cars revolves around the story of a race car named Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson. At the final lap of the race during the Piston Cup tournament, a three-way tie between Lightning McQueen, Strip "The King" Weathers, and his nemesis Chick Hick concludes the race. A tiebreaker competition is scheduled on the next week to settle the tie. Eager to win the championship and better his career by securing a deal with Dinoco, a lucrative sponsor, McQueen tells his rig, Mack, to drive him across California to practice. Tired from the drive, Mack drifts off the road and is disturbed by a group of reckless street race cars. The commotion causes McQueen to fall from his big rick and into the road. After waking up, McQueen finds himself in the middle of traffic. He then rushes to find Mack, but in doing so, is run over by a group of tractors, which in the movie is distinguished as cows. He then finds himself in a small and seemingly abandoned town called Radiator Springs. While McQueen escaped the enraged tractors, the incident left the roads of the town damaged and ruined. For inflicting property damage, McQueen is jailed and impounded for the night. As punishment, he is ordered by Radiator Springs' judge and physician, Doctor Hudson, to leave at once. But one of the residents of the town, Sally Carrera, suggests another way to settle the dispute. She insists that McQueen performs community service in order to fix the roadway, to which the judge agrees. McQueen, in a hurry to get back to his championship tournament, tries to repair the ruined pavement in a day, but is asked to redo it because of the sleazy work. Forced to work on the road pavements, McQueen gets to know the residents of Radiator Springs, particularly Sally Carrera, a town lawyer who McQueen later falls in love with. But as McQueen and Sally make their first kiss, they are interrupted by the media and Mack, who has been worriedly looking for McQueen for days. Unable to say goodbyes to his friends, McQueen gets distracted during the race. He reminisces Sally and their time together. Later on, he is surprised by his friends in Radiator Spring and shows up in the competition, allowing McQueen to get back on the tracks and possibly win the race.
