It is the Vetran's weekend - a most anticipated 4-day weekend. We made a list of all things fun we wanted to accomplish before we had to go back to school/work and we are well on our way to having a most relaxing entertaining family fun weekend of all time!
One thing we wanted to do on our weekend extravaganza was go see a movie. A real full price new release movie. We are movie loving people here and I had 2 groupons of FREE movie tix for our family that needed to be used. Our movie of choice? MEGAMIND. The latest animated family film. Starring the voices of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill.
There were only a few laugh out loud moments. And the storyline was totally predictable (As we were driving over to the theater Jeremy told us how he thought it would all turn out in the end and he was right!) Even the dialogue was predictable! Having never seen this movie before, I said some of the lines right along with the characters.
During the movie you'll ask yourself: How do you pronounce the name of that city? Metro City or Metrocity?
If you love Will Ferrell then this movie is definitely for you. He is ALL OVER and through, inside and out this movie.
Here were our reactions when I asked everyone, "what did they think of the movie?" as we walked away from the theater:
Jeremy: It was ok.
Logan: But it wasn't better than Dragon. (Our new favorite movie is "How to Train a Dragon". We watch it at least once a day right now.)
Overall we give it 3 brain bots out of 5.
This movie was totally family friendly. Take your children young and old as it is appropriate for all ages. But, I think we could call it a rental.
