Movie Info: Cars gets a spin-off with this Disney Toon Studios film starring the voice of Dane Cook as a vertically-challenged plane with high hopes of becoming an air racer. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

The Positive: The vibrant animation and the Disney-formulated story-telling are the reasons why this movie will entertain both adults and kids.

The Negative: “Pitch Perfect,” “Turbo” and a handful of other films come to mind after learning the premise during the first half of the film. It feels like an adaptation of Cars instead of spin-off. Pretty much uninspired and predictable.

Memorable Line: “I’m afraid of heights.”

Tag Line: “From above the world of Cars.”

Quality: 2 stars
Entertainment: 4.5 stars
