My family and I had the opportunity to see Planes: Fire & Rescue. It is a great movie for the whole family. It is entertaining for children but also has enough funny references that adults will enjoy. My girls enjoyed watching Dusty and his friends in their high flying adventures and my hubby and I had some giggles during the movie, too. One thing to mention, if you have an inquisitive 10 year old like mine, some of the adult humor might be questioned. One scene mentioned how 2 RVs wore their tires out on their wedding night and my daughter asked what that meant and why I laughed. We have this with a lot of movies these days. LOL Thankfully it all went right over my 8 year old’s head. PHEW!
“Planes: Fire & Rescue” is a new comedy-adventure about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world-famous air racer Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (voice of Ed Harris) and his courageous team, including spirited air tanker Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter (voice of Wes Studi), ex-military transport Cabbie (voice of Captain Dale Dye) and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero. Directed by Bobs Gannaway (“Secret of the Wings”) and produced by Ferrell Barron (“The Fox and the Hound 2”), “Planes: Fire & Rescue” hits theaters in 3D on July 18, 2014.
