The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure Movie Review

Now that The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure movie is in theaters (as of TODAY),  I can officially post my review of it.   Some of the reviews I have read from movie critics so far haven't been too favorable.  But I wonder how many of them went with little kids??  I don't know about you but I RARELY take my kids to movies because they can't sit for that long, they are constantly needing shushing, or they get scared.  This movie is a remedy for all of that!!  They can sing, dance, and interact with the movie!  I think it's a great idea and watching my kids enjoy it made it worth it for me.

I actually got to watch this movie because I wasn't constantly dealing with a kid issue.  Admittedly it is NOT geared towards adults (although I liked the guest stars).  :)  No adult humor.   The closest thing would be the Toni Braxton musical  She is not as wholesome looking as the other cast members which just made her part seem a little out of place.

Going forward this is the only kind of movie I would take preschool-agers to, otherwise it's just not worth the money I waste pacing with a bored kid in the hall.
I took my son (2 years old) to the recent Winnie the Pooh movie (which I loved!) and even though he's a fan he couldn't sit there through it...that is when I vowed not to take my kids to another movie in a theater until they were much older....until Oogieloves :):)

So this mom gives it 2 thumbs up for my 2 preschoolers!  Older kids???  I don't know...but I saw plenty of school age kids singing and dancing :)  This movie comes to theaters today!
