I don’t remember where my little Alexander first learned of the movie PLANES. It might have been in an email I received, a trailer before a movie we were watching or a commercial on tv. Although I cannot recall how he discovered the movie, one thing I do know is that he has been dying to see it. Being a big fan of Cars, I knew that PLANES would be a hit with him as well and I was right!
PLANES arrived at our home last week and we have watched it at least 5 times already.
If you haven’t heard, PLANES is The High-Flying Adeventure About Dream Taking Flight. PLANES offers high-flying action and adventure while sharing the story of a crop plane named Dusty, the endearing underdog, with sky-high dreams. Backed with the voices of Dane Cook, Teri Hatcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and John Cleese, along with many more great voices you are sure to recognize, PLANES is a great movie that the entire family is sure to enjoy.
