Despicable Me - Movie Date

For days, my husband has been telling me that the new animated movie, Despicable Me is a must-see and that surely our son Andre would enjoy the movie.  I was a bit hesitant because the character of the movie was kind of mean-looking, of course the title would speak for itself. Despicable has a negative connotation right?  But anyways, after days of prodding I finally gave in, and so on a Sunday afternoon we all went to SM to watch the movie in 3D, because we wanted to see if Andre would enjoy  a different kind of movie experience.

It was good to know that the ticket came with a freebie, a choice between a hot-dog sandwich and a bucket of popcorn.  That was a good thing because all I had to do was buy ourselves drinks.  That day, I was craving for a banana shake, so i went to grab one at Thirsty, and then bought drinks at the refreshment counter for my boys.  While paying for the drinks, I placed my banana shake on the counter,and totally forgot about it until halfway during the movie.  Explains why I felt as if I was missing something... too bad, the cup was still half full when I left it.   Anyways, the movie was really not that bad, I must admit I had fun, especially looking at all those tiny yellow creatures.  Where they robots?  I really don't know.  But Andre had a blast as well.  He was really amazed with the 3d effects, and would reach out his hand whenever things seemed to come out of the screen.  What I would not forget was when he said, "Mommy, these are cool glasses, I want one for home when Andre watch TV".  I was quoting my son, and what he means was that he wanted 3d glasses for himself when he watches TV at home.  So he was a bit sad when we had to return the glasses after the movie. 

The movie was okay for me.  The story was really funny and heart warming.  It is a proof that there is a good side hidden within each of us.  We just need to let that good side come out of its shell and show itself to the world.  What made the movie worth it for me, was to see the joy in my little boy's face and hear him laugh.  Andre had a really good time and for me that was what matters.
