I remember how completely NOT interested I was in the first LEGO Movie. I even told my daughters to keep their expectations low because it was “probably going to be goofy.” Then The LEGO Movie was goofy, but in the most wonderful, fun-to-watch way! I’ve enjoyed every LEGO Movie that’s come out since (yes, even LEGO Ninjago) so I’m especially jazzed about The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. So, who wants to see it EARLY and FOR FREE with me?

It’s been a while since we’ve had a straight-up Kids’ Flick to talk about, and Show Dogs definitely fits the bill. This one stars Chris “Ludacris” Bridges as a police dog who has to go undercover at a dog show to stop a bad guy. Will Arnett also stars, along with some pretty high-powered voice-talent, including Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Shaquille O’Neal and RuPaul. If you’d like to take your kids to a Saturday screening of Show Dogs, Continue reading →
ATTENTION ALL FULL-TIME-SUMMER PARENTS!!!
I’m speaking to those of you who have been left in charge of the ankle-biters while they are out of school. I feel your pain!
I too have visited every park, accepted every play-date and purchased every kid-appropriate option GROUPON has to offer (Wait, can we take our kids to wine-tastings?)
BUT SUMMER STILL ISN’T OVER!
What do we do with them now?
Lucky for us, I was able to wrangle up free passes to see The Nut Job 2 AND Leap!
Are they good movies?
WHO CARES? They’re FREE and they’ll keep your spawn from asking “What are we gonna do NOW” for a full ninety minutes. Heck, you might even be able to work in a little snooze while they’re watching the movie. Continue reading →
I NEVER expected to like the first Lego Movie and, as I always say, Low Expectations Are a Film’s Best Friend.
Like that line? Feel free to use it.
The first Lego Movie ended up in my Top 10 Favorite Films of 2014, so now I’m trying to reel in my expectations for The Lego Batman Movie. My kids, on the other hand, are full-blown PUMPED about it.
So, who wants to see The Lego Batman Movie EARLY & FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I saw the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows with my daughters and they had PLENTY to say about it. I had a few thoughts myself, especially since the Turtles apparently SWEAR now! Listen to the podcast below if you’d like to hear our thoughts and find out if we think this movie is appropriate for kids. Remember, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows opens in theaters nationwide June 3rd.
We’re big fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in our house. If you see my daughters and I out somewhere though, you have to pretend like you don’t know this.
See, we all became fans of the Nickelodeon TMNT a few years ago, but my kids got it into their heads that they weren’t supposed to be watching it. I don’t know why, but they thought girls shouldn’t LIKE the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is ridiculous. So, they’ve continued to watch it in private and hush me violently whenever I mention the show in front of their friends.
Despite all of this, they are thrilled to see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and will be even more pumped when I tell them I have free passes. If you’d like to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows with us, click HERE to grab a 4-pack of passes, then watch the trailer below. But remember, when you see us at the screening, you don’t know we’re fans!
