Corrected entry: If all the vehicles in the movie have mouths (can speak) and have eyes (can see), then why can't Bessie (the road paving machine McQueen is attached to) speak or see?
Corrected entry: When Snot Rod and the other Fast and Furious inspired cars are fooling around with Mack, the camera does a closeup shot of Snot Rod revving his engine, and you can see the throttle butterflies closing when he revs higher. They should be opening, not closing, with higher revs.GalahadFairlight
Corrected entry: When Lightening McQueen is chasing after Mack after being dumped out, he leaves the Interstate, hits some dirt and corrects the slide to get back on the road. According to his multiple attempts on the track at Willy's Butte, Lightening doesn't know how to do this, and it becomes the basis of him learning a "new" way to drive from Doc, and it even helps him in the final race.
Corrected entry: When McQueen stops before the finish line, the King is seen in the right corner of the scene, but Chick does not appear on the racetrack. Inmediately afterwards, Chick passes by the finish line.
Corrected entry: When McQueen leaves Radiator Springs, he still has his new hot rod paint job from Ramone. When he exits the trailer at the track in California, he is suddenly back to his racing paint job.
Corrected entry: When Lightning is talking to Sally after helping the town, you can see that the sky is still moderately light, and the sun is setting. Then Red activates the town's neon signs, and it gets completely dark instantly.
Corrected entry: When Lightning is getting offered to be the new face of Dinoco, the head of Dinoco says "Hey Light, how about coming over here and talking to me for a minute." After he says that Lightning comes over and he's about 2 feet away from the head. But for the rest of the conversation, McQueen's much closer to him.BigOLB
Corrected entry: Lightning McQueen unveils his new "Radiator Springs" look, with white wall tires and a retro paint design. But a few minutes later he's reverted to his old look. He keeps the old look for the entire tie-breaker race, and then the "Radiator Springs" look comes back, and stays for the rest of the movie.
Corrected entry: During the flashback sequence of the interstate opening, we can see that Guido was already in Radiator Springs back then, which was some time in 1950's or 1960's. How come after living at least forty years in the United States, among cars speaking English, he hasn't learned the language besides "pit stop" and few other words? It can't count as the character's mistake since, no matter who you are, after years of living in society speaking different language it's natural to you to understand at least basic sentences.
Corrected entry: Lightening McQueen is portrayed as the first rookie to possibly win the Piston Cup. When he discovers the Piston Cup trophies in Doc Hudson's garage, we see that Doc won the Piston Cup in 1951, 1952 and 1953. Doc Hudson is a 1951 Hudson Hornet, as confirmed by his license plate is 51HHMD. By winning the Piston Cup in 1951 the year he was made, Doc Hudson is actually the first rookie to win the Piston Cup.
Corrected entry: When Lightning McQueen is in Radiator Springs and he's trying to fix the road with Bessie the first time, a little bit of asphalt spurts on him and drops on his famous lightning bolt sticker. The size and position of the patch of asphalt changes throughout the movie until it gets washed off.
Corrected entry: when lightning McQueen finds DOC's 3 piston cups they all have the years on them, but at the end of the movie when CHICK wins there is no year engraved on the cup.
Corrected entry: Several times during both NASCAR races, you can see a rather large amount of asphalt pieces loose on the race track. It is very unlikely that the race would be started without removing these pieces, as they can cause severe damage to the cars. As both races are finals in the world cup, in a community based entirely on cars, the rules would most likely be very strict concerning the race tracks.
Corrected entry: In the final race, Lightning gets hit by Chick and almost loses it in the grass, but he is able to regain his composure and get in front of the King and Chick. He passes them on the grass and that is illegal in NASCAR. If a car passes another by passing the interior line to get around them, that driver is automatically to the back of the pack.
Corrected entry: In the final race, Chick purposely grinds against Lightning which in turn causes a blow out. In NASCAR you can't deliberately hit someone to get a higher position.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Doc Hudson is trying to give Lightning advice on turning on dirt he says "I'll make it simple, if you turn hard enough left, you'll find yourself going right" and his tires turn accordingly. For the rest of the scene, Lightning uses the reverse, saying "turn right to go left", including into the next scene where he is back pullie Bessie. For the most part there are no right turns in oval track racing.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the second race, the line up on the track is King (43), Lightning (95), and then Chick (86). In the following shot, it shows the "score board" with the numbers in the following order: 43, 86, 95.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Luigi discusses with Lightning what type of racing car Lightning is and gets upset that Lightning races in the Piston Cup and not Formula One he says "Luigi, follow me to the garage." when speaking to Guido.
Corrected entry: After Lightning is sentenced to fix the road by Doc Hudson, Mater takes a look at the road and is surprised by its condition. However, Mater's home is at the end of the road, and had to tow Lightning back and forth earlier. Surely he would've noticed the condition of the road before that.
Corrected entry: At the very end of the last race, we see Lightning stop about 4 feet from the finish line when he realizes that The King has crashed. However, there is a long shot of McQueen at the finish line just after Flo says, "What's he waiting for, Doc?" and you can see that McQueen's bumper is just touching the finish line. However, when he decides to see if The King is OK, his bumper is 4 feet from the finish line again.
