PLANES (D+, A+, A-, B+ and ?)

 
Bottom Line: Disney takes to the skies with this well-meaning, highly marketable and yet meandering and unmemorable mess of a movie that favors the selling of back-to-school backpacks in lieu of character development, story structure and talented voice work.  There’s no hiding the fact that this rudderless and lazily fashioned vessel was originally intended for straight-to-DVD consumption – it’s a carbon copy of Pixar’s CARS without the wit, heart and humor.  My house, however, was divided as Mrs. Movie Guy loved it (A+), my 8-year old really liked it (A-), my 6-year old  thought it was pretty good (B+) and my 3-year old was overjoyed with a dinner of popcorn and Red Vines… Pixar Animation is a maverick in the world of animated cinema – creative, adventurous, unique, exciting and fun – while Disney, at least this time out and on their own, becomes the goose as it lays a disjointingly harmless, rent-it-as-a-92-minute-babysitter cinematic egg.
