Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Cast: Owen Wilson, Paul Newman, Bonnie Hunt, Larry the Cable Guy

Pixar has managed to make us care about bugs and rats, but they're not able to repeat the feat with automobiles. In fact the whole concept doesn't hold water. There are no humans, the cars have built the world as we know it. And if they have eyes, mouth, tongue and teeth, does it mean that they were born and not built? Nevermind. The protagonist is an arrogant racing car who is stuck against his will in a small town of Radiator Springs on Route 66. This animation is beautiful to look at but it rarely raises a laugh.
