My Take on the Movie
I've seen all of the recent Disney movies lately, and I have to say that this has to be in my top favorites that have come out in quite some time. I did not know what to expect when I first saw the movie but the mixture of former with serious material underlying the humor made the movie irresistible. For me as a father, there are so many messages that this movie provides its' viewers. I know that during and after the movie I was able to talk to my girls about some of the concepts in regards to friendship, bravery and what it means to be a hero. We also talked about who their heroes were and I was a bit surprised at who they mentioned. All and all this was a great addition to the Disney line of movies and it is one that I would highly recommend to any and all movie lovers.
