Cars

Cars ★★★ 2006(G)

Brightly-colored animated adventure from those Pixar folks about automobiles. Arrogant rookie racecar Lightning McQueen (Wilson) is detoured to the sleepy town of Radiator Springs on his way to a big race. Forced to perform community service, Lightning gets a lesson in humility and figures out that fame isn't everything, thanks to such new friends as Sally Carrera (Hunt), a hot 2002 Porsche 911; gruff Doc (Newman), the 1951 Hudson Hornet; and Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), a goofy, good-natured tow truck. Just as heartwarming and funny as you'd expect a Pixar feature to be. 118m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . US Larry the Cable Guy; D: John Lasseter; W: Joe Ranft, John Lasseter, Dan Fogelman, Kiel Murray, Phil Lorin, Jorgen Klubien; C: Jean-Claude Kalache; M: Randy Newman; V: Owen Wilson, Paul Newman, Bonnie Hunt, Paul Dooley, Joe Ranft, George Carlin, Katherine Helmond, Michael Keaton, Richard “Cheech” Marin, John Ratzenberger, Tony Shalhoub, Richard Petty, Guido Quaroni, Jenifer Lewis, Michael Wallis.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
