Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 4.6
Entertainment Weekly -
What Planes lacks in novelty, it makes up for with eye-popping aerial sequences and a high-flying comic spirit.
The Playlist -
When Planes really takes flight, it can be boldly transporting. Other times, though, it feels like it's running low on jet fuel, full of limp characterizations and questionable set pieces.
New York Post -
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.
Boston Globe -
Planes has some wonderfully goofy, even ineffable, touches.
Dusty Crophopper is a little cropduster plane with a fear of heights and a crazy dream of being a racer. While his friends need convincing, Dusty gets the training he needs from Skipper, a veteran fighter, and qualifies for the Wings Across the World race. In the event, Dusty finds competitors who soon learn that there is something special about this underdog as he is tested to his physical and emotional limits. In doing so, Dusty soon finds enemies, and more importantly friends, who are inspired by his dream. In the face of all obstacles, the winner of this air race will be anyone's guess.
