Reviewing the Reviews: 'Cars'

93050__cars_lMost folks in the publishing industry will tell you it’s easier to write a funny headline for a scathing article than for a rave, and the abundance of tired ”enjoy the ride” ”and ”gear” clichés in this morning’s mostly positive reviews of Pixar’s latest animated release, Cars, drives that point home. That said, a few publications revved up their games this morning, proving their editors and writers are still punning like well-oiled machines. Here are my picks for the five best Cars headlines; if you see something better in your hometown paper, do share with the class.

5. Ohio Free Times: An Auto-matic Success
4. Star-Telegram: Vroom with a view
3. New York Post: Dude, here’s your car
2. Indianapolis Star: ‘Cars’ is a movie all auto enjoy
1. Washington Post: Young and Fuelish

    From the Columbus Dispatch:
    Slow ride
    Family flick offers decent drive, but spoiled viewers expect luxury model

    Ogden Standard Examiner: “‘Cars’ starts fast, sputters, roars to finish line”

    I guess all headline writers DO think alike.
    The Toronto Star: “Zoom with a view” and “These Cars run on puns” (look who’s talking!!)

    Chicago Tribune gave us three headlines (the front page): Is Cars a Total Gas? Car-toon high on style, but is there heart under the hood? (Then on the movie section): Just a Sunday drive, Cars has high-test effects, but its plot runs on empty
