Stu­dio: Dis­neyToon Stu­dios Di­rec­tor: Klay Hall Dis­trib­u­tor: Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures Re­lease Date: Au­gust 9 Box Of­fice: $198.9 mil­lion [$88.7 mil­lion] Rot­ten Toma­toes Rat­ing: 27% Synop­sis: This CG spin-off stars Dusty (Dane Cook), a crop-dust­ing plane who prac­tices aerial ma­neu­vers in his spare time, dream­ing of com­pet­ing in the Wings Across the World race. With the help of some other avi­at­ing char­ac­ters and me­chan­i­cal helpers, Dusty gets a shot at mak­ing his dream come true. The Odds: It’s like Cars, but with air­planes. That’s about what crit­ics and crit­i­cally minded au­di­ences took away from the Dis­neyToon out­ing, which was orig­i­nally in­tended for a di­rect-toDVD re­lease—al­though it was praised for its in­ven­tive vi­su­als. Who knows, maybe the academy is full of avio­philes?
