The Simpsons Movie...

Took the boys to see The Simpsons Movie today. This was Bryn's first ever movie experience, and so, of course, he managed to fall asleep in the ergo, on the tram, on the way down to the cinema. He woke about 1/2 way through the movie and Dave was holding him at the time and his eyes were apparently like plates! Then he spotted me, and want to sit on my lap, where he sat back and very placidly watch the rest of the movie!!! Erik's first movie was Thunderbirds Are Go! (the old movie, before the Thunderbirds revival movie), Luey's was Nemo (also by Pixar like today's movie)...

Anyway, he seemed to like it...

When the movie finished a bunch of kids went and stood right up in front of the screen so the lettering went over their bodies - they would have been aged 8-12, believe it or not... Erik and Luey, of course, had to be part of that action, and it freaked Bryn out to see the lettering roll over their bodies, he kept calling out, "Luey stuck! Erik stuck!" he obviously thought they were trapped by the lettering, LOL...

So, was the movie good, I here you asking. Well, WE lauged (Dave and I) throughout the entire movie, so it couldn't have been that bad... But you have to ask yourself, as Homer did, who would PAY for something you can see for free at home!

All said and done though, it was a GREAT first movie for Bryn!

Sounds like it went great! My kids loved the movie, and I enjoyed it as well. Which is great, cause often there are kids movies that we have to suffer through... though less now that they are older thank goodness!

DS's first venture to the movies was Toy Story 2 (yep, that long ago LOL). I can't remember DD's exactly, but I think it was Sprited Away (the Japanese animation).

LOL If I thought La would sit still long enough I'd go as N is dying to see this! How cute it Bryn thinking Erik and Luey were stuck and trying to get someone to help! :-)
