It was clever and entertaining. The animation was spectacular..especially the character's hair.
What I really enjoyed was how little I knew about the story and film prior to seeing it. That really added to the experience. This was an original story and a new direction for Pixar and I was glad to see it. It was great to see them being creative and original again, not just milkng the Disney toy sales like Cars 2 and Toy Story 3 (which was great mind you). I was never a fan of Cars or Cars 2...they are Ok movies but not my thing.
The animated short before was very clever and fun. I am a fan of all of Pixar's shorts...and this one was no exception. Very cute.
There were a few trailers..one for Finding Nemo in 3D and a Monsters Inc sequel..Monsters University I believe it was called. Very funny trailer.
Overall a great night out and my son and I had fun. I had a bit of an issue trying to get a Spider-man cup for my son. When we were let into the theater they took our cell phones and put them in bags they matched with tickets. Once we got our seats we went to get popcorn, when I realized my wallet and cell phone are all in one wallet so I had to ask one of the security guys for my wallet portion back. He gave me grief because they were busy getting people scanned to go in the theater. Once I got my wallet back I went to buy snacks. I wanted the Spiderman combo so I could get the cup. The girl needed my Scene card to sell me the combo. I explained that I don't carry the card..but use the Scene card app in my phone that security has now. She would NOT sell me the combo OR the darn cup! I refused to give up as my son was excited for it..and she asked someone else then came back and said she couldn't sell it to me. Grrr!!! I told my son in front of her, "Sorry they won't sell us the cup." When I paid for our snacks I used my bank card that also says Scene on it. I showed her but that wasn't enough. GRR! After the movie we looked around for an cups that got left behind..and even asked one guy who was leaving with one (in case he was going to toss it out). No luck! I tried one more time and went to the concession and asked a guy this time. I explained that I wanted the cup with my combo earlier, but wasn't about to spend another $20 for another combo (now that I had my phone with the scene app back)..I just wanted a cup. He said..I can just sell you a large drik and give you the cup. I said, "That's all I wanted in the first place with the other girl." and agreed. I asked him to just fill it with water and my son got his cup. He loved it and slept with the Spider-man straw all night. I pulled it from his sleeping hand this morning. I just refuse to give up sometimes!
Tonight I get to see a screening of Ted. That should be fun.
