My boyfriend and I go to see a lot of children’s movies, but have never used a kid as an excuse to go see one of them. They are just plain fun! We find them fun to watch because of their lightheartedness and their over-the-top humor – as in adult humor that children can’t grasp. That aspect makes them really funny. And we are just kids at heart, anyway. 😉
But maybe I’m just a bit confused here. By “children’s movie” are we talking simply animated or geared toward kids? Although there are lots of others we’ve seen and enjoyed; one of our favorites is the “Cars” series. We have differing opinions on this set of movies, though. Whereas he believes they are geared more toward adults (because of all the “adult innuendoes throughout”); I think they are more of a children’s series because of their cartoonish nature.
I loved the Yogi Bear movie, too. 🙂 It took me right back to my childhood. I’ve even got a real pic-a-nic basket, just like the one Yogi likes! LOL! (Of course we saw it in 3D!)
Mary Poppins was a favorite, too! “I Love to Laugh” is a theme song of mine more often than not. 🙂
How about you? What are your opinions on whether all animated features are geared more specifically toward children?
