TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES is in theaters July 27
We attended the premiere for editorial purposes. Opinions are our own. Thanks WB.
Teen Titans are a big deal in my house. I have watched the show a few times with my darling daughter (the one who makes the big deal) and always LOL at the slapstick and all-over-the-map popular culture references spread through the show’s action, jokes, songs and gags. Teen Titans want to be serious super heroes, but with a severe case of immaturity they will have to settle for never being taken serious.
However, making a movie out of TV cartoon is very serious business! I’m always a bit skeptical when TV shows hit the big screen. There’s always something over exaggerated or just lost in format translation. But Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is exuberantly exaggerated and did not lose the smart, silly humor on the way to the big screen. Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is absolutely HILARIOUS!
The key to making it big in the superhero world is to have a movie made about you. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and pretty much all of the DCU heavy hitters have a movie. But not “sidekick” Robin. Teen Titans Go to the Movies is set following Robin’s quest to be taken serious and finally have a movie made about him. Teen Titans do some pretty heroic stuff, but usually behind a veil of fart jokes and 4th grade funnies. NO ONE thinks a sidekick like Robin deserves a movie…except for his Teen Titan family.
Teen Titans Go to the Movies pokes some serious fun about themselves, the DCU and even the Marvel Universe of superheroes. This movie steers clear of any sort of seriousness usually found in epic superhero flicks. The songs, the scenes, the time travel and SLAAAAAADE all mixed together create fantastic, goofy fun that was thrill to see with my family! I realized I take my superhero too serious and this movies helped me laugh my butt off (Beast Boy would be proud)!
