the cast: Dane Cook as the young hero we're all supposed to relate to? Seriously? He's 41 years old, for God's sake! Also, he somehow doesn't have that everyman quality that Owen Wilson has, despite working for Wes Anderson so much. But the busy bees over at Pixar are too busy to worry about poor box office performance. Their next project? Planes 2 and the triumphant return of Dane Cook as Dusty Crophopper. Also, stick around for the ending credits where Tom Hanks says to Tim Allen "YOU..ARE... A.... PLANE!!!!!!" Worth the price of admission right there. Look for Zac Efron in Pixar's upcoming Boats, playing Hank Buoyfloater, the young tugboat trying to seduce Lucy Yachtington, the snooty but curvaceous luxury yacht that he falls for one day. Oh, why oh why isn't the ocean big enough?
What else? Another sequel: Percy Jackson 2. Yawn. And so, that's it for the debuts this week. How come nothing ever happens in August?
