I'll keep it short and sweet. This movie is fun and cute. It's not "the greatest Pixar film ever", but it's definitely worth going to see in 3D. It was funny and fun, and the 3D format really allows it to shine. Expanding on the world of Cars is a great idea! I hope they make more!

We took our 3 year old grandson to see this movie. It was his very first movie in a theater experience. It was a good story and kept him in his seat the entire time. Much like the movie cars with a variation on the same story line.

I particularly appreciate that this movie was a good and wholesome movie for kids for a change. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because the movie is almost exactly like Cars. The story is the same story and the characters look, act, and sound the same as Cars.

The movie Planes was no Cars. Even though it was a decent kid's movie, it followed the same formula as Cars and had no real originality to it. I did laugh out loud at a few scenes, but not many and the humor was nothing that any of my children (ages 5-9) caught. Could have waited for the rental.

Let me just start out by saying, I thought "Planes" was through Pixar. But, even if it was, I thought their last film, "Monsters University" was just okay. That's essentially how I felt when watching this one as well. Sorry, but I feel that Disney films are starting to slip in great quality! The story in "Planes" is somewhat similar to "Turbo," which I believe was a much better film. Of course, the animation is fantastic, as is the flying sequences; but, I thought the storyline was ehh. Again, I must state, because Disney is going to produce "Star Wars: Episode VII." I concerned.
