Teen Titans Go to The Movies Review
This weekend we attended an advanced screening of Teen Titans Go to the Movies. It is based on the Cartoon Network show, Teen Titans Go. The film is all about the characters' adventures trying to get their own superhero movie. They are on a mission to convince a famed Hollywood director (Kristen Bell) to produce the movie for them. Their plan is stalled by villain Slade (played by Will Arnett) who is trying to conquer the world.
My husband loved all the references to his favorite classics like Back to the Future and a host of superhero movies. One of the highlights for him was a cameo by Stan Lee, who is an American comic-book writer, editor, film executive producer, actor, and publisher. He was formerly editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics and makes a cameo in almost all their superhero movies. I think my husband was laughing louder than any of the kids. B and most of the kids loved the gags inspired by comic book movies and scenes filled with fart and poop jokes.
B was so excited about the movie. She gave the movie two thumbs up and cannot wait to buy it when it comes out on DVD. Personally I think this movie might be best for a daddy date to the movies (unless you are a comic book lover) since much of the humor was lost on me. There were a couple of times I thought the movie was over and then was slightly disappointed that it was far from over. For me the highlight of the movie was definately the soundtrack. B was literally dancing in the theater multiple times.
Rating: PG (for action and rude humor)
We took one of B's friend (who is 6) with us to the movie and there were a couple of scenes that had her curled up in her chair and looking away. We are very conservative in our house when it comes to language so I was disappointed to hear jerk and stupid used mutliple times. They are "bad" words in our house. At the end of the movie she gave it one thumb up and one thumb down because she did not like being scared.
About Teen Titans Go to The Movies
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! Teen Titans GO! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza. It is a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.
It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes are starring in their own movies. Everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! The de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation. He wants to be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. When the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
