Film review: Planes (U)
A spin-off from Pixar's Cars, this Disney-built animation is a pretty mediocre flying experience, not quite Ryanair but distinctly second-rate.
It's the story of the little aeroplane that could: Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook) is a lowly cropduster whose dreams take flight when he qualifies for an around-the-globe race, his opponents a sleeker bunch of wings.
Younger audiences may chortle at the fart jokes and the funny accents, though they'll scratch their heads at the randy Mexican airplane that keeps chasing the tail of a haughty French number (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).
I was a bit puzzled, to tell the truth: a buried reference to the mile-high club?
