Cars

From Pixar/Disney, the tale of a cocky, success driven young race car Lightning McQueen (Wilson) who, on his way to a Championship race in California, crashes his, um, himself, in the sleepy town of Radiator Springs - destroying some of the inhabitant's belongings. This is no good say the townsfolk, and to make amends he is ordered to stick around for community service.

Despite stars in his eyes, McQueen resigns to hanging in Radiator Springs where he meets the locals. The friendships he forms, teach him there are more important things in life than trophies and accolades.
