Yo Quiero la Chihuahua

So I cannot believe that we forgot to review this movie after we saw it over Christmas Break!

I remember first seeing this movie poster hanging in the theater lobby about 2 months before it was supposed to come out. I stood there in front of the poster just shaking my head and thinking, "Is Hollywood really for real?! Seriously? A movie about chihuahuas?"

Well, when this is the only kid friendly movie at the $3 theater and we want to take the kids out, I had to buckle down and prepare for the worst. How's that for a bad attitude?

My parents and sister Mica were brave to come with us. They've been in a movie theater with Jackson before so they knew what they were in for. Jackson was still for about the first 3/4 of the movie and then he was ready to move around a bit. Mica busted out her new iTouch and distracted him with the iFart application for awhile - that was hilarious! Then Grandpa Louie walked him around for a bit.

The movie was not terrible. It was actually pretty fun, but it's always better when you're watching with children and can see things from their perspective. It was a little difficult to get past the talking dogs, but other than that the story itself was good. The cast had some pretty big names as well. Drew Barrymore, George Lopez, Andy Garcia and Jamie Lee Curtis.

We'd definitely call this one a rental, but overall we give it 3 out of 5 diamond doggie collars.

We have a $3 movie here too and were thinking of taking the girls to see that. I'm taking your advise for renting. Do you ever do the redbox rentals? $1 for 24 hours. we love it!
