Disney Entertains KiDs

I brought my 3 yr old son who loved the cars movies and this entertained him for the whole hour and a half. He liked the characters and followed the story. There were some great messages in their about helping others, being honest and striving to do more than what comes naturally to you. All great messages for a kids movie. A bit different than the typical Disney/Pixar team... I read that Pixar was not involved with this one although John Lasseter was part of Directing team. It didnt seem to have the same feel to it and lacked some of the adult type humor that is typically buried into the similar type movies. All around a great movie for the young kids. Certainly 4 months before christmas I expect target to be running crazy trying to keep the planes toys in stock :) Thanks Disney! To help you understand my review my son and I Love the Cars & Toy Story movies and we do not really watch much TV at all other than age appropriate movies occasionally.

PLANES keeps it in the air

PLANES is a worthy successor to the CARS franchise, and the depth of research that went into this movie is obvious. I had just spent the day piloting for Civil Air Patrol, and every little detail paid homage to real-world aviation. (I didn't know planes had tongues, but there they were, firmly in cheek...) Anyone at all familiar with Reno or Oshkosh will find references galore, and those of us who do fly can easily recognize our fellow aviators among the characters. Having said that - this movie is just "plane" fun! Everyone in the theater was entranced, from 2-year-olds on up, from beginning to end. Bravo, Disney!

Good addition to the cars experience. The 3d shots of the flying and depth were great to watch. We liked the story and had some great laughs. Love these feel good family movies that allow us all a good laugh and fun experience.

This was a great film for the whole family! The planes were fairly accurate (we are aviation enthusiasts so we noticed some little things), the story was great and the music was wonderful! We all loved it!!!!!

Waste of time and $

Dane Cook and Teri Hatcher's acting, reading, whatever you want to call it, was awful. Less funny than Cars and Cars 2 and much more boring. Completely disappointed. Save your $ and wait til it comes out on cable.
