This movie was a total flop. Also, I was so highly offended by the trailer for the movie BoxTrolls (which discussed "families" as including same sex marriages) prior to our movie. As a parent, I expect to have the right to decide when and where I discuss these social issues with my children - NOT as a captive audience for an advertisement for a movie. I never write reviews for movies, even when they are bad. But this total remake of Cars coupled with the highly offensive trailer prior to made me feel the need to comment. Mandi.

I found it a little slow at one point but over all great for kids, Remember its a kids movie for kids. My husband liked the WW2 references and stated the aviation terminology was correct , our son really loved it. Overall a lot of fun!!!!

I took my grandchildren to see this movie and they just love it This movie was well scripted and the voice choices were also cast perfectly.
I love the story line and the medifore of believe in yourself and you can accomplish anything you want to, and accept help if you need it. My grandchildren were riveted to the seats and screen. this movie was so well done and the animator should be nominated for an Oscar,

I am usually very engaged with the characters and plot lines of Pixar/now-Disney films. I must say I was very disappointed with Planes. So very formulaic and completely predictable after Cars. The "bolted on" romance plot line was really almost pathetic. It seems as though Pixar was doing it on purpose! That being said, the visuals had their usual degree of spectacular-ness.

I took my 3 year old daughter to see Planes, she couldn't quite understand why Lightning McQueen wasn't about. It kept her entertained but the storyline was a little lacking, but what do I expect after all it was a Disney film. Good characters but the usual bad guy, grumpy old sage who has a traumatic back story, comedy sidekick, beautiful girl, and enough highs and lows to make you air sick!!!
All in all not too bad, lots of adult side jokes to keep the grown ups entertained, lots of action and great graphics to keep the kids happy......although I am still not 100% sure about the giant American Airlines product placement mid film!
