I took Jasmine on a date yesterday to see The Lorax. I made sure it was an afternoon showing so that she could have her nap before we went.
I got her all dressed and made sure she knew where we were going. We get to the movie theater and order some snacks. Jas wanted every since box of candy at the concession stand. It wasn’t going down that way tho. We settled on nachos and a drink and headed to our theater.
We get inside and Jas makes sure she tells me, ” Mommy is real dark!” I know baby, its real dark.
We find some seats where we have a good view. What I didn’t factor in about movie theater seats is that you need to have a little weight to you for the seat not to fold all up on you and 25lbs doesn’t cut it.
“MOMMIE ITS SMASHING ME! IM FALLING!!!”
Needless to say I hard to keep one had on her seat the entire time so the chair wouldn’t eat her.
We shared nachos while we watched the previews. She laughed loud and giggled at the trailer for Ice age 4. She loved the trailer for Despicable Me 2 that comes out next year. Some other trailer about a boy who see’s ghosts had her interested but she told me, ” Dat one scare me!”. I guess we won’t be going to see that one.
After each preview was over Jas said loudly, ” IT WENT OFFF MOMMIE, IT WENT OFF!” people were giggling at her. I must admit it was rather cute.
The movie starts and Jas and I are super excited. Its nice and colorful and Jas’s eyes are all big as she makes a full blown mess with nacho cheese.
Every so often during the movie Jas was lean over and tell me something about the movie which i thought was too cute. She was really watching and really into it all.
“Mommy, you see dat!?”
“Look at that dog! Its cute!” (it was really a bear)
“That’s a fish mommy! It’s orange!”
“You see that mommy * fits of laughter* dat was funny”
“Oh no mommy!!!! He dropped the seed!”
“Dat man got the seed!”
“Da Lowracks is back!”
We clapped when it was over. I even got a little misty at the end. She said she really liked it and I really liked it too. I’m already for it to come out on DVD so I can buy it.
It was a great movie. It makes you wanna go recycle and become a tree hugger. If you have small children ( 2 and up) they’d love it. If you have small children( under 2) and they might fall asleep during the movie, take them and go see it for yourself. It’s a really good message and a really well done movie.
