Doodles first movie theater experience was Monsters Vs. Aliens 3-D. Good action, fun effects and Ginormica rules. Overall if not in 3-D probably not that great for adults. Doesn’t have quite the gravitas or comedy of many Pixar classics. But a fun family matinee if Coraline is too scary for yours, too. Doodles fave was “Dr. Cock-a-roach” (voiced by Hugh Laurie and yes, mustachioed).
The day before we had seen one of the worst family films for adults to sit through, Alvin and the Chipmunks. Yet, that sad excuse for family entertainment illicited just as many belly laughs from Pablo as the superior M v. A. There’s something undeniably funny about a fart joke. And maybe funnier when Mama remarks that there wasn’t even one good one in Monsters. Have I told I have never audibly farted in front of my wife or any other woman in public? It’s true, but we’ll save that for a future post. So you know, you have that to look forward to, dear reader.
3-D might be enough to get me back in the theater and not just waiting for DVD. It’s pretty cool when done well. Have you seen one lately?
