This past Movie Tuesday the babes requested that I take them to see The Lorax. I was more than thrilled to oblige them. I have been excited about seeing this movie for a while now. I was happy the kids were excited too.
Luckily we made it to the $5 matinee. The cost of a movie these days makes it very hard to take the family with. On top of tickets, I have to buy both kids Frozen Cokes ($5.50 ea.), they split a Medium Popcorn ($6.00) and throw in a Medium Diet Coke for me, and my bill was over $20. INSANE! However, I don’t take them that often, so when I do, I deal with it. I also snuck in my own chocolate – so that shaved a few dollars off my bill.
There were a good number of people at this showing. There were kids there from 1 to 60. I never noticed any crazy kid outbursts, so the little ones must have enjoyed it too.
My kids (ages 7 and 10) were attentive and followed along with no problem. The humor wasn’t over-their-heads, and I love when I see them laughing. There was suspense, action, bad-guys chasing good guys, animals frolicking and eating marshmallows, musical numbers and even a little bit of romance. It was an hour and half of pure family-friendly fun.
The kids loved it and so did I. Afterwards I asked them what the message of the movie was and my 7-year old said “Don’t cut down all of the trees.” He is a sharp one – LOL. I’m just glad he got something out of it.
Rating: Loved It (Very Good)
I defintely would recommend it, with or without kiddos.
