About this movie

The world of Cars takes flight in Planes, Disney's high-flying animated comedy revved up with action and adventure. Join Dusty, a crop duster with sky-high dreams and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take on the world's fastest flyers in the greatest air race ever. Dusty has a huge heart but two big problems... he's not exactly built for speed, plus he's afraid of heights. His courage is put to the ultimate test as this unlikely hero aims higher than he ever imagined. With a little help from his friends, Dusty finds the courage to be more than he was built for and the inspiration to soar.

Sometimes the character in the movie gets overshadowed by the persona of the actor. Every time I heard Dane Cook's voice I thought the plane was going to start doing a stand up comedy routine. Unfortunately there weren't any really funny lines for him to deliver. My two year old lost interest about 1\2 hr into the movie. She normally is pretty glued to the screen for animated films. It was a beautifully animated film, the story is pretty played out though.

Kids like seeing the animation and conflict resolution. Adults like the contemporary comic bites. However, as a Pixar fan, I found the story is a bit redundant. Say similar to Monsters U. Where the lead character facing a society where everyone is to fit into the position pre determined. Only this time the lead character beats the norm and wins. Also, similar to Cars 2 with the race around the world story line. Very little personal development of the lead characters. One bad guy, with gang. Everyone else helps without care to their own conclusion.

My son loved this movie and watched it all the time for 2 years. I'm guessing that more than half the people saying it's a rip off have no idea WHY this movie was even created. My son hated Cars (other than Mater) but loved a movie about airplanes instead. People seem to forget the true meaning behind kids movies and automatically jump to be critical. If you hate it, fine, but a bad review on a movie that is intended for young children makes you look pathetic and childish.
