Mikesaid on Monday, February 24, 2014 8:43:26 AMThis movie is not just "From Above the World of 'Cars'", it's a total ripoff of "Cars". I agree with Richard that the movie is beautifully animated, but that's really the only positive thingto say about it. A recycled formulaic plot and uninteresting characters make for a forgettable movie. By the way Billy, John Lasseter DID have some input into "Planes". He is one of the Exceutive Producers.
Billysaid on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 3:32:45 PM It should also be mentioned that this is NOT a Pixar film, regardless of Disney's misleading "Above the word of Cars" reference. John Lassetter and company had zero input into this, which may be why it's such a snooze fest.
