When Dusty is talking to Ishani in Nepal and he mentions her 'new propeller' as Sky Slicer Mark 5, made exclusively for the Ripslinger racing team. The propeller is a four bladed prop. None of the Ripslinger entries (Ripslinger, Ned or Zed) are using a four bladed prop. Ripslinger uses two counter rotating two bladed props. Ned and Zed each use a single two bladed prop. See more »
Monsieur El Chu... from rogue to tres romantique...

No idea. But, French Canadian is the language of love... in Quebec. So, it's got to be good.

I enjoyed this movie as did my 3 1/2 year old son. While not quite as 'warm and cuddly' as the original Cars movie it was still loads of fun (and far better than Cars 2). The landscape views from the air were tremendous as were the snow and water scenes. The dialogue was good but a bit more for kids and a bit less for adults. Still, they got a lot of the aircraft stuff right and the take on VF-17 was a nice touch and did a simple but effective job of helping to tie in Skipper's appearance in the film.
Overall I rate this one a 7...it invariably will be compared to both Cars movies but really it should stand as its own flick. And on that it holds its own and has real merit. Worth a look-see and BTW my son REALLY loved it.
