Kung Fu Jack Black!

Tonight we took the kids to see Kung Fu Panda. Hee-yuh! We all loved it! Yes! We were leery of taking our Jackson monster along because he usually won't sit through even the first 20 minutes of a movie, but he did really well. He was totally into it - mimicking the characters and even laughing at appropriate times (keep your eyes peeled for an awesome bum squashing slow-mo sequence!). Trev, Log and Lizzie were mesmerized the whole time.

Our favorite quote from the movie, "Treat each day as a gift. That's why they call it the present." How awesome is that? A little uplifiting message sandwiched into your entertainment - you can't beat that.

We stayed through most of the credits and were surprised that we didn't recognize more of the big names... Jack Black (he MADE the movie - his humor was perfect for animation), Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu and Jackie Chan.

We totally recommend this movie to families of all ages. We'll probably go see it again - it was that good. We give it 5 dumplings out of 5.

Thanks for the review! I forgot to call you before we left. We are in Pasadena and wont be home until Friday, so, we wont make it for piano. I lost my phone and don't have your number with me! Sorry I didn't let you know sooner, it was kind of last minute. I'll call you when I get back.
