Planes: Fire & Rescue

Director: Roberts Gannaway
Cast: Dane Cook, Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Danny Mann, Teri Hatcher, Julie Bowen, Ed Harris, Wes Studi, Dale Dye

The sequel to the highly unoriginal Planes is not only computer-animated but computer-scripted and computer-directed. Following the first film and Cars before it, it is simply incredible that Disney has the audacity to tell the same exact story for the third time in eight years. Now Dusty Crophopper is forced to withdraw from racing due to a broken gearbox. He ends up travelling to Piston Peak National Park to be trained as a firefighter. Once again the cocky hero is mentored by a gruffy old timer who is haunted by a personal tragedy.
