Storyline

Dusty Crophopper is a little cropduster plane with a fear of heights and a crazy dream of being a racer. While his friends need convincing, Dusty gets the training he needs from Skipper, a veteran fighter, and qualifies for the Wings Across the World race. In the event, Dusty finds competitors who soon learn that there is something special about this underdog as he is tested to his physical and emotional limits. In doing so, Dusty soon finds enemies, and more importantly friends, who are inspired by his dream. In the face of all obstacles, the winner of this air race will be anyone's guess.

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

When skipper is pulled out of the water in the flashback, the hull is clearly that of a nuclear carrier ( note the edge of the runway on the side ), which wouldn't be in service yet during WW2 . See more »

A plane that is afraid of heights? Really, is that all you could come up with...

That's like a car that's afraid of a freeway. This is only going to be enjoyed by children under 10, if even that. Bob the builder is better, seriously.

Summary: Jokes were not funny - Every line was trying too, too hard - Any effort to give the characters life fall very, very short - Action scenes were boring and predictable - It was like drinking a flat soda, no spark or fizz from start to finish.

Well, I feel like I have put more effort into this review than it deserves! Which is more than I can say for the film.

UGH, I want my time back please!
