Review: 'Planes: Fire & Rescue' flies straight and true

I somehow missed the 2013 animated Disney film "Planes," which other critics dismissed as a low-rent version of Pixar's "Cars" franchise, only with propellers. And because I've always thought the "Cars" franchise was Pixar's weakest offerings, I went into the "Planes" sequel with low expectations.

Turns out "Planes: Fire & Rescue" is a lot of fun. It's a whole lot better than the bloated "Cars 2," the usually reliable Pixar's only dud. "Fire & Rescue" features a fast-paced plot and enough humor to keep both adults and children amused.
