The Cars Trilogy

The whole family went to see Cars 3 at the movie theater last week.  We all enjoyed the film and had a great time.  The Cars movies are fun to watch, but they also teach valuable lessons.

Cars 1

Lightening McQueen starts out rude and arrogant.  As a result, he had no friends, his pit crew abandoned him, and he lost the most important race of his life.

During the movie, he learned humility.  He learned to treat others with respect.  He also learned actions have consequences.

Cars 2

Mater is a rusty tow-truck.  He loves being silly and he is a loyal friend.  Unfortunately, other cars tend to make fun of Mater.  They call him an idiot and a fool.

However, Mater knows more about car engines than anybody else.  That knowledge allowed him to solve the case and find the mastermind criminal that was trying to destroy the race cars.

Lighting McQueen and Mater learned everyone is different, with different personalities, and different skills.  It’s important to accept our differences and be kind to everyone.

They also learned fights happen among friends.  However, friendship is valuable and we should make amends after a fight.

Cars 3

Lighting McQueen is getting older and struggling to keep up with the rookies.  He learns a lot about motivation and asking for help when it is needed.

At the end of the movie, Lighting McQueen learns another valuable lesson.  Helping someone else achieve their dreams is extremely rewarding.  Teaching others the skills you have learned throughout your life is a great way for your legacy continue, even when you are no longer able to compete.

  1. I love the Cars movies. Haven’t seen the third one, but really liked the original. Sounds like one I need to see. There aren’t a whole lot of movies out there that teach life lessons in an entertaining way.
