But when I saw it in the theater, I had to repeatedly kick my own ankles with my mom-flats to stay awake.
Why? Because the movie was EXACTLY THE SAME THING AS EVERY OTHER PEANUTS MOVIE/SPECIAL/CARTOON MADE IN THE HISTORY OF TIME.
Seriously, bored. Out. Of. My. Mind.
So why bring this up now? Because it’s super cute for the under 10 set (who haven’t seen any Peanuts cartoons before) and it’s available on DVD and streaming video.
And more importantly, it’s safe to let your kids watch while you do something else, like the dishes. Party on, right? No Lucy and Charlie Brown sexual tension, no profanity exchanges between Snoopy and the Red Baron. It’s just safe – and boring – kid movie fun.
So if you are needing to find a moment to yourself and keep those kiddies entertained, by all means find it and throw it on.
Just don’t make me watch it again.
The Peanuts Movie is available on Amazon.com.
