Planes 3D

From the animated world of Pixar's Cars comes this high-flying Disney tale of a cropdusting plane named Dusty, who dreams of competing in a famous aerial race. There's only one problem: he's afraid of heights. Features the voice talents of Dane Cook, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Stacy Keach and John Cleese.

Originally to be released as direct-to-DVD, early scenes impressed the powers-that-be at Disney enough to step it up to a theatrical release. The film's executive producer and co-writer is John Lasseter, the Pixar sage behind Toy Story and Cars.

So overrun with broad cultural stereotypes that it should come with free ethnic-sensitivity training for especially impressionable kids.

The lack of wit and humanity that makes exec producer John Lasseter's best work so special will leave grown-ups feeling frustratingly grounded.

An endearing enough David-and-Goliath tale, aimed squarely at younger kids.

For the most part content to imitate rather than innovate.

It's an amiable enough entertainment, gentle and good-natured.

It's a pleasant enough expression of a series of familiar story beats, but apart from a few brief action-sequence moments, it could hardly be more rote.

Despite the more aerodynamic setting, this Cars 3D offshoot emerges as an uninspired retread.
