I would now like to pitch Disney's next animated film, called "Subway."
You can't blame Dane Cook here. He's just raking in the payday, and as weirdly demonstrated by that great scene from season 2 in Louie, you wouldn't exactly call this a knock on his "credibility" or whatever.
While Dane Cook has been honing his acting chops throughout the years, appearing in comedies (Dan in Real Life, My Best Friend’s Girl) and dramas (Answers to Nothing, Mr. Brooks), the comedian has just landed his highest-profile bigscreen gig to date. He’ll be voicing Dusty, the lead character in Disney’s Planes, inspired by the incredibly successful Cars franchise.
The film, which also stars former Reno 911! star Carlos Alazraqui, centers around Dusty, who, despite his build, wants to become a champion racer. To that end, Dusty joins forces with an experienced plane in hopes of taking on the race circuit champion.
It's a sad day when you begin to take the parents side as a kids movie viewer, but if I'm going to be dropping $40 on an afternoon (probably'll be $60 in 15 years when we all start doing this), it would be appreciated if it was something that was actaully watcahble. Not saying this will be a terrible movie, but with glaring similarities to "Cars," it doesn't exactly seem like anyone's trying. I mean not that this is actually anyone's fault (it will make a lot of money, money = jobs, jobs = people being able to do shit such as taking their kids to shitty movies that make money). Granted I have no basis for this ranting--this very well could be great--but I really hope they took a leaf out of the Rugrat's school of kids entertainment-- the one where you could secretly be talking about actual life, too.
