The following post and giveaway is in partnership with DC TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
A couple weeks ago I had shared my family’s excitement about the upcoming TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES film, and that we would be going to see an advanced screening. Well today I am back to tell you that this movie was SO MUCH FUN to watch!
Filled with many unexpected DC Superhero Moments, Pop Culture References, as well as shout outs to other cartoons and comic book characters, my family really enjoyed the film.
As a child that was born in the 70’s, I am a little sentimental about the classic DC stories of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. I grew up looking up to superheros portrayed by Christopher Reeves and Lynda Carter, as well watched multiple actors play Batman versus comical villians. Of course we have had recent remakes with more darker origins, but most of my kiddos haven’t had an opportunity see any of these with the exception of Wonder Woman.
Teen Titans GO is a great bridge between the past and present, because it references these original stories and adds in humor that we all can appreciate. Plus, when we watch the show on Cartoon Network I find myself laughing at the same punch lines as my kids. This is exactly what we did when we saw the movie.

Now I am no spoiler, but I will give a heads up on some crude humor like characters talking about Pooping, Farts as well as some booty shaking. However if you have ever watched the series on Cartoon Network, this would not come as a surprise.
Plus the end credits scene of the film throws out a curve ball statement from Robin, meant to be funny and directed at MOM and DAD. (You will most likely get a chuckle, and probably best not to take it too seriously or show to much of a reaction in front of your kids, otherwise you might be getting some questions, LOL.)
Here is what my family had to say about TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES!
6 Year old Son, “It was funny and I liked what Slade said and did. I also liked how the Teen Titans teased him about being Dead Pool.”
9 Year old Daughter, “I liked how they went back in time and showed the DC Superheros being silly, especially Baby Superman.”
12 Year old Son, “I thought that it was hilarious and liked the new songs in the movie. I also liked how they called Slade Deadpool, that was a funny scene.”
My husband, “I thought it was neat how they did different types of animation throughout the film.”

About the film TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES:
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.
It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them.
With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
The first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show stars Greg Cipes (TV’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (TV’s “Spider-Man”) as Robin, Khary Payton (“The Walking Dead”) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (the “My Little Pony” franchise) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (TV’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”) as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series.
