We are on spring break and so today the kids and I went to see How To Train Your Dragon in 3D. I called around for a babysitter because I did not want to bring Baby Doodle, but no luck so I armed myself with Dum Dums, chocolate eggs and fruit snacks.
We all loved the movie! It's an adult and child pleaser. The story follows Hiccup, a misfit Viking teenager, who learns to love and train a dragon as a pet and friend instead of fight him as a foe. The script is well written and witty and heart-felt. The voices are all well cast and the 3D animation is amazing!
Right now (we are still early in 2010) this movie seems a shoe in for Best Animated Feature of 2010. We may even go again this week because Hubby wants to see it too.
My 5-year-old son had one complaint; he did not like it when Hiccup and Astrid got cuddly on the dragon. He told me, “I don’t like this part, I like the action.”
Doodle sat on my lap and covered himself and me with chocolate and sucker stickiness, but it was worth it because I actually was able to watch and enjoy the movie.
On the way out, Lyds and Z-man insisted on keeping their glasses (but never fear we did recycle mine and Doodle’s). They even wore them out of the theater and into the parking lot so I had to take a picture.
Go see How To Train Your Dragon and pay the extra dollars to watch it in 3D, your money will be well spent. FAMILYFARE.
