Dragon Tamers - Not Just For Kids


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.

You are practically melting away. We almost saw that movie the other night and opted for Alice in Wonderland instead. Sounds like we'll have to go see it.

I LOVE movies, I run into the problem of finding a movie I HAVEN'T seen or WANT to see. I want to see this, but NOT in 3-D! It makes my eyes go NUTS and the are jacking up the prices of 3D movies 20 or more percent at most places. So if you paid $14.50 before, you may pay $17.50 from now on. YUCK!!

I saw Bounty Hunter last night and it was fantastic, Gerard Butler is so gorgeous!

We finally saw Fantastic Mr. Fox last night. Loved it!

You were spot-on with your last paragraph about the kids not enduring the glasses. Best idea to take them to a 2D show.

And YES, everybody else, I LOVED it! I liked it much better than Frog Prince, which was also cute, but not this good.

We saw this, with kids, on Saturday. While I normally don't like kids movies very much, I LOVED this one.

I've heard so many good things about this one. Can't wait to see it!

Good to know! My husband really wants to see it, but I was worried it was going to be yet another in a string of dumb kid movies lately. What is with that?
