I went with my mom yesterday to see a movie for my birthday. There wasn't much out that I a) hadn't seen, b) wanted to see, c) would see with my mother. So in the end we settled on How to Train Your Dragon. I was a little worried about seeing a kids' movie, sans kids. Would it be juvenile, stupid, pointless? No, in fact it was delightful, charming and I LOVED it. So much so that if I'd had time today, I would have taken the kiddies to see it. The very next day. So if you are on the fence about this movie or somehow hadn't heard of it, please, do yourself the favor, with or without kids, and see this movie. And maybe take just one tissue for the tears you'll find on your face as the closing credits roll. (You know, in case YOU are a cry baby or something.)
p.s. It comes in a 3-D version, in case you love those. I didn't see it in 3-D and I kinda wish I had. But if you're taking kids, go to the regular one. The kids might not be bothered by the double vision when they peel off their 3-D glasses 90 seconds into the movie, but YOU will go nuts trying to make them put them back on for an hour and a half before they go blind.
