"Cars" with wings ... that's largely how this animated Disney fantasy plays, which doesn't make it completely original though it still supplies entertainment for all ages. Dane Cook voices Dusty Crophopper, a modest plane that wants to complete against much sleeker vehicles in a major race.
If you wonder whether he succeeds, it's possible you've never seen a Disney movie before. Among others in the voice cast are Teri Hatcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese, Brad Garrett, Cedric the Entertainer, Val Kilmer (an amusing inclusion, given his "Top Gun" work) and a particularly enjoyable Stacy Keach. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes; "Franz's Song" music video. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
