As a huge supporter and fan of the first CARS film, and not caring at all for the 2nd, this one was phoned in, lacked the "SOUL" and interest of the original. The parts are there, the deep drama and personal problems but it failed to flow. Just plodded along from thing to thing until the big climax ending. The ending was fine, but I have zero desire to ever watch this again, and won't be buying the disc, and WILL be watching the original again to re-feel everything that was missing here.
And it is almost too deep for kids. Lots of talk about life and retiring from it, and not lots of kid style hijinks.
It looked great and had a story, but felt like a cash grab --- or that all the original PIXAR writers were not involved.
