Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —
The one element that seemed to place this in the fun for any age category was the character of El Chupacabra (Carlos Alazraqui), who is without a doubt one of the best uses of comedy relief out of any film so far this year. The perfect example of a good friend, I give high props alone to his rendition of the song “Love Machine,” where the humor is gold.
The rest is something that I’d say is at least worth a rental and let’s face it, much less down in the gutter than some of the people who are supposed to be role models for children today. Plus, for a low budget film, it proves not every enjoyable hit has to have a $200 million price tag. When the last propeller sputters, the end result for “Planes” is three and three fourths out of five engines.
