Cars (2006) for Rent on DVD and Blu-ray, Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the car characters do some pretty raucous racing, careening off walls, trees, and each other. A group of The Fast and the Furious-style vehicles briefly threaten another car. Cars argue with one another, lose their tempers, and look sad or lonely. There’s some innocent flirtation between boy and girl cars. Some mild language — at least one use of “hell.” At 116 minutes, it’s on the long side for animation and may be too much for some really little kids. But stick around for the closing credits!
