Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average However, if you adjust expectations accordingly and watch the film through the mindset of a child, the minimalism of "Planes" might feel like a refreshing change of pace from the recent onslaught of loud CG spectacles.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average Often less really is more, and that's why I can recommend "Planes,'' a charmingly modest low-budget spin-off from Pixar's "Cars'' that provides more thrills and laughs for young children and their parents than many of its more elaborate brethren.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 85 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:As expected, nearly all the children LOVED "PLANES."
TEENS:The three males loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The one male loved it. Three females rated it above average and one rated it average. There aren't really enough reviews in this group to be accurate. I would suggest that you look at the adult reviews for guidance.
ADULTS:Nearly half the males loved "PLANES." Most of the rest rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. A few of the males rated it just average. The female reviews are GREAT! All but a few LOVED "PLANES." Two-thirds of the remaining few rated it above average.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) is a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty's not exactly built for racing--and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty's courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
