Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Maya Rudolph, Samuel L. Jackson

Turbo (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) is a snail who dreams of going a little bit faster. Of course, being a snail he has as much chance of picking up speed as a snowball has of not not melting in, well, you know. But an accident involving nitrous oxide gives Turbo the boost he needs, and he’s soon moving at breakneck speed. After smoking all of his snail competition, his human buddy suggests that he enter the Indy 500. Of course, the Indy is for cars not snails, but Turbo is not deterred from pursuing his dream, and the audience won’t be able to stop cheering for this little guy to go all the way. –p.d. lee
