Movie: Cars

Vroom! The 2006 CGI box-office success comes to the small screen, with Owen Wilson voicing Lightning McQueen, a hotshot race car who gets stranded in a backwater town. He’s revving at the engine to get back to racing, but Radiator Springs has its appeal. Additional voices include Paul Newman, Bonnie Hunt, Larry the Cable Guy, Cheech Marin and Tony Shalhoub. (ABC)

Movie: The Proposal

Sandra Bullock got back on the hit-comedy path with this 2009 tale of a driven publisher who learns her lack of a valid visa will send her back to her native Canada. Her options include finding an American husband fast, so she basically forces her assistant (Ryan Reynolds, who actually is Canadian) to become her fiance. Veteran talent Betty White steals the show as Reynolds’ grandmother; Mary Steenburgen and Craig T. Nelson play his parents. (W Network)

Movie: Patton

George C. Scott refused the Oscar he was awarded for his 1970 performance as the controversial Second World War general — which isn’t to say that he deserved it any less. He makes that evident from the first scene of the film, in which he makes a memorable speech in front of a huge U.S. flag. The film also was named best picture. Karl Malden co-stars as Gen. Omar Bradley. (TCM)
