World War II happened, but it was all fought entirely by sentient planes. Planes that are possibly born and have sex with other planes. These are the confusing elements which don't need to be, but end up occurring in the quickly-written Planes. Not a sequel, but set in “the world of Cars,” this Pixar/Disney cash grab finds the always-obnoxious Dane Cook voicing a crop dusting biplane with big dreams and a fear of heights. After some time-wasting training with grizzled mentor Stacy Keach, he ventures forth to compete in an around the world race with a host of ethnic caricatures. Brad Garrett voices the Larry the Cable Guy role. Rare to see a film in theatres that screams so blatantly of belonging direct-to-DVD, everything from the animation to the voice acting in Planes feels downgraded. At it's best, Pixar created lived-in worlds of beauty and depth. Planes craps all over that process from 30,000 feet up.
