My family works hard. So when we have a chance to play, we take advantage and PLAY especially in the summer. Going to the movies is something we’ve always enjoyed and there’s nothing like watching a great family summer movie. So, when the opportunity came to get a sneak peak of the Teen Titans Go! movie, of course I said “yes”.
At first when I told the eight year old girl about the movie, she seemed disappointed that the plot was all about superheroes. The five year old on the other hand, is about superheroes all day!
Besides the mild quirky superhero action, in Teen Titans Go, you’ll find dancing, cheeky humor and surprisingly, life lessons that we can all earn from.
Robin’s strong desire to seek outside validation from others is something we can all relate to at some point or another in our lives. Whether you’re seeking validation from your friends, your parents or the Justice League… it’s all the same. You don’t have to be a superhero aficionado to learn something here.
In addition, this group of animated talent teach us to choose our support wisely…in this case, the other Teen Titans. Know that your “support” will have your back, no matter what.
I have to tell you though, the Teen Titans movie really tested my superhero prowess. Specifically, a certain five year old was peppering me with questions all through out the film about who was this person and that person. I wasn’t ready.
But the biggest surprise of all is, the 8 year old had the best time. She laughed out loud several times during the movie and thoroughly enjoyed herself. She even referenced similar patterns she recognized in the Teen Titans movie and compared them to the Incredibles movie, which I totally missed. I guess, I have a budding movie critic on my hands.
I do have one gripe about the movie though. In the closing scene of the movie, Robin leans in close to the camera and makes a request of moviegoers. That made for most awkward and funny drive home ever. Sorry, I can’t tell you what that was about. You’ll haveto see the movie when its released on July 27th to find out.
Hint: I wasn’t ready. I hope you are.
