Guys, Turbo looks BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD. By which I mean to say it looks AWFUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLL. By which I also mean to say, kids are going to love this shit and it’s going to make a billion dollars and I am probably going to have to take my daughter to see it.
You know what looks cute? The Boxtrolls.
COMMENTERS: What kids movie were you dragged to by your little ones that you actually ended up enjoying? What kids movie were you dragged to that, upon completion, you wished you had been subsequently dragged into a hole in the dirt, covered in dirt and left there to become more dirt?
I really enjoyed How to Train Your Dragon way more than I assumed I would. I actually nodded off during Cars 2. That was a hell of a joyless cashgrab. I accidentally wrote “cashcrab” then changed it, but I think cashcrab fits. Fuck that cashcrab.
My little girls are just a little bit too little to drag me to films however I foresee lots of Princesses and fairies in my movie-going future. Kill me now.
Chris · 102 weeks agoEasy – the Last Airbender – that was atrocious.Fortunately my daughter is still young enough that we pick all her movies. That having been said, I was pleasantly surprised at both How to Train Your Dragon and Monsters vs. Aliens. On the other end of the Dreamworks spectrum are the Shrek-uels, esp. 3, 4, and the “Netflix specials”. Just stop.
Brit · 102 weeks agoNo kids, but my former roommate let her inner child shine through way too much when it came to watching movies. Did you know there are three sequels to the Swan Princess? Three! And one of them is a Christmas movie. Luckily when you don’t have to be responsible for the interested party’s upbringing you can turn crappy kiddie movies into drinking games.Watching kids movies is the best part of being a dad… OK, one of the best… I usually really like the kids movies.
My Little Pony is one of the worst things about being a dad…I don’t have kids of my own, but I do have little cousins for whom I am responsible every now and then. Movies are the best way to regain my sanity when they’ve been whining for hours. Of course, I have to disqualify Pixar movies, since I went to go see those of my own accord.
Worst: Tie between Horton Hears a Who, Where the Wild Things Are and Mr. Poppers Penguins. That might just be because of the brutality exhibited on my childhood, though.wallace and grommit was probably as much for me as for my son…
my kids are odd… kids movies they’re like eh, but my son is practically rabid over ‘pacific rim’, and my daughter is a total nut for kung-fu movies…
