Did You Know?

Trivia:
Bravo and Echo are F/A-18F Super Hornets, numbers 113 and 210 respectively, of VFA-103 "The Jolly Rogers." Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards were cast to voice them based on them both appearing in Top Gun (1986). In addition, Bravo and Echo's flight helmets are the same design/colors as 'Goose' and 'Ice Man', the characters Edwards and Kilmer played.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: In the closing credits, one of the authors of the song "The Girl from Ipanema" appears simply as 'Antonio Carlos' instead of 'Antonio Carlos Jobim' (or, in Brazilian Portuguese, 'Antônio Carlos Jobim').See more »

It *IS* a Cars spin off, and that's okay..., 10 August 2013
Author: dunstone from Hawaii

There is a bimodal distribution (2 peaks) in the user review scoring of Planes: 1-star, this is a horrible rip- off, nothing new here, Pixar's image is tarnished - and 10-star, what a wonderful kid's film, details are excellent, funny, good message.

First, this is not a Pixar film. You read that right. It's Disney, not Pixar. But it does have common cast of writers/producers. You may even note the tag line, "From above the world of Cars," overtly acknowledging the connection. If you can get past the notion of a rip-off, then, you'll find a lovely, joyful movie with enough to keep parents entertained while children are having a blast.

Yes the characters resemble those in Cars. Yes some of the plot lines are familiar. Yes the animation is similar to Cars (although the flight scenes are spectacular in spots). You know what I remember? Cars was a great movie! I'm pretty sure I remember that since I've seen it 147 times with my son (not really).

This is not an academy award winning movie. But it is a lot of fun. Before giving this children's cartoon 1-star, be clear what you're watching.
