Planes Review. Adventurous Storyline & Enduring Characters

Planes Review
By: Jennifer Vogt Schadel

Please welcome guest reviewer Jennifer Vogt Schadel. From time to time she will be dropping by with her reviews.


If you are looking for a rip-roaring good time for the whole family, “Planes” is the movie for you! Disney brings to life the world in the sky in this action-packed, fun-loving thriller that brings you to the world of “Planes”.


Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook) is a humble crop-duster with a big dream, a dream to compete in a plane race around the globe amongst the fastest planes from all over the world. But coming from the corn fields of Nebraska, Dusty has a long road to travel before he can achieve his dream. Along with the help of his beloved friends Leadbottom (Cedric the Entertainer), Chug (Brad Garrett), Dottie (Teri Hatcher) and Skipper (Stacy Keach), “Planes” takes on the adventure that gives you soaring highs as well as valley lows. Dusty makes new friends, who are destined to become some of Disney’s most enduring characters, along his adventure. We’re introduced to the feisty and romantic, El Chupacabra (Carlos Alazaraqui) from Mexico, whose love song was one of the hits of the show, as well as Bulldog (John Cleese), an arrogant Brit with the best one-liner of the movie! We meet Ishani (Priyanka Chopra), a beautiful and captivating plane from India who catches Dusty’s eye and Rochelle (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), the French Canadian who plays hard-to-get with El Chupacbra (side note: if you watched “Seinfeld” and remember the “Rochelle Rochelle” episode, it made hearing Julia Louis-Dreyfus was voicing “Rochelle” that much more fun!). We are also introduced to Disney’s newest villain, Ripslinger. He’s Dusty’s biggest competitor and he’s not going down without a fight.


“Planes” has the feel of Disney’s beloved story “Cars”. With similar characters, storylines, graphics and just about everything else, you do feel like you are back in good-old Radiator Springs. They even threw in the entertaining cow tractors for good measure. I kept waiting for Lightning McQueen to appear and say “Cha-Ching”. The similarities give you a warm fuzzy feeling that makes you feel like you have found an old friend, but “Planes” was a strong enough story to hold its own in comparison to its beloved mentor. Fans of the movie “Cars” will fall in love with “Planes” as well!


“Planes” was propelled with an adventurous storyline, enduring characters and many, many great laughs. Whether you are one or a hundred-and-one, “Planes” will leave you feeling exhilarated and ready to soar to new heights!
