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.

Planes was a great movie my 2 year old really loved . II enjoyed the plot and it was really funny. It is truly a family fun movie with a motivational story line that would make any mother proud to have her children see it!

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!

first 20 minutes were slow and hard to sit through. But after that there were a few funny moments, witty comments, and action sequences that had you enjoying the movie.

I am a long time Disney fan of 50 yrs old. I took my grandkids to see this movie and enjoyed all of it. The kids (3,4,5 yrs old) stayed in with the movie the entire time. Other than the obligatory bathroom run which is expected, they stayed in their seats or were leaning on the seat in front of them for the run of the movie. Typical Disney story line but was kept pretty fresh. I would certainly recommend this one. 3 1/2 out of 4 stars.
