How to Train Your Dragon

Well, we schlepped into town tonight to take the kids to see this movie.

Only we skipped the 3D version, having read that it may have made the movie a bit scarier for younger audiences.

Okay, where to start with this movie?

How about the cast?  Flippin' brilliant.   That's all I have to say about that.  Jay Baruchel, Jonas Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kristin Wiig... you think it may be a cross between Superbad and Knocked Up!  But add the Scottish likes of Gerard Butler and Craig Ferguson and WHAM!

This movie made me laugh out loud, more than once.  I got all teary eyed too, more than once.  And once, and I'll only admit it to you, I actually REACHED out as if I could stop something from happening!!

Yep, embarassing.

And it wasn't even in 3D!

But definitely GO see this - with or without the kids!  You will love it!  If you do take the kids, please note that they may be frightened at some of the scenes but my 5 year old was okay - in fact, when you ask her what the scary part is, it's when Toothless is captured and they are "being mean to him"...

Gotta love a movie that makes you fall in love with animated characters...
