Synopsis


Planes
Cars gets a high-flying spinoff with this Disney Toon Studios film about a humble crop duster who dreams of becoming a great air racer. Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) spends most of his days flying low, but his eyes are always turned up toward the clouds. Sadly, Dusty's modest engine and intense fear of heights make a career in racing a long shot at best. Things begin to look up for Dusty, however, when a veteran aviator helps him qualify for a race against the reigning circuit champ. Now if Dusty can just learn to let go of his fears, his checkered-flag dreams may finally come true. Also featuring the voices of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, and Brad Garrett. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Best aviation & flying film I've seen in years.

    Films that concentrate on aviation & airplanes are rare, so it is a joy to see one that gets all the background material correct. In "Planes" the aircraft fly and manuever just as real planes would. And many of the characters are clearly patterned after real, historic aircraft. El Cupacabra is clearly a Granville Brothers Type R racer, and Franz, the flying auto, looks like the Aerocar designed and built by Moulton B. Taylor. The idea of a cropduster becoming an air racer is a classic "underdog succeeds against the odds" plot, but many great films have been made with the same storyline. I particularly enjoyed the way Dusty wins the race; it is straight out of the 1937 Thompson Trophy Race when the Folkerts SK-3 passed the Marcoux-Bromberg Special in the last fifty yards of the last lap for the closest finish in American air racing history. Anybody who enjoyed "Porco Rosso" or "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" should love "Planes." It is a fun story and a great aviation film as well.

    I'm 71 and a kid at heart. I grew up on Navy bases all over the western hemisphere - California, Washington, Tennessee, Hawaii and Guam. My dad was a Navy AD1 (under the cowling aviation mechanic). I have seen him work on almost all the WWII thru Viet Nam aircraft. I have flown on a B25 Mitchell with Collins Foundation like the one that the Hall sons rode in the bonus feature. I have built models of both the Mitchell and the P-51 Mustang. I have a part time job with the local Grand Prairie Airhogs baseball team. The P51 and the F4U (skipper) were both built in Grand Prairie (Vaught Aircraft and American). The Airhogs have a 1/2 scale flyable F4U on display. I saw the Navy Blue Angels overfly Guam in 1954 in their F9F Panthers. Everything mentioned above were either featured in the movie or the bonus feature which makes the film very personal to this 71 year old.

    Animation is great considering it's 'low budget' for a Disney animated movie. This is not a Pixar offering, but plain Disney. That's not a bad thing, mind you, as I believe this was originally meant as direct to DVD. Long story short, it's an underdog story. You can guess what happens in the end. It's got enough humor to not bore adults to death and a neat casting surprise during the aircraft carrier scene. Think "Top Gun." Good story for kids and I'm glad they enjoy it. They watch it often so it is definitely money well spent.

    Kids will enjoy it, parents might not.

    My child is at the age where he is starting to want to choose his own things. I had a gift card and was going to allow him to purchase one movie, and this is what he chose. He had seen it before and liked it enough to want to own it. I watched it with him when we got home and for me, once was enough. I could see why kids would enjoy it, but it doesn't have the same charm that the like-minded "Cars" has. If it is just for the kids, this movie is fine.

    It's Pixar so it's not going to be bad regardless, but i had just a little bit of deja vu watching this. As a big "Cars" fan the plots of the two films were just a little too similar. Still a pretty good movie. I think Pixar needs to get a little more brave with their story lines and not have it be about the "plucky car/plane/fish" that can win! That being said it's Pixar...and fun.

    This movie is pretty good. It's not quite as good or well put together as the Cars movie; however, it is a good change up for sure. Our son does like to watch this movie and it keeps his attention, though, not usually for the whole thing. It is nice to have another animated movie for him to watch. Ours came with the digital download which is great when we are on the go!

    We bought this movie because my 5 year old loves all things Cars. Set in the same world, but with all new characters this felt like a carbon copy of Cars. However, it has its own witty charm and is a great movie for family fun time or to keep the little one entertained

    This is a great film about going outside the box. All our lives we are told to go and be more than we are, but our educators limit us with what they teach. This movie is about breaking free from what you have been taught and becoming so much more. With the help of his friends, Dusty Crophopper becomes a great leader and racer.
