Will Ferrell’s new animated super-villain comedy “Megamind” debuted at No. 1 this weekend and made $47.7 million but is it really worth my hard-earned money to take my kids to see it?
The AJC’s review gave it a C-. So that doesn’t seem promising, but it did make a bunch this weekend. Walsh has asked to see it but I told him we would wait until we heard more kid and parent reviews. So what did you think?
Is it good for all ages? Should I bother taking the 3-year-old or leave her at home with Daddy? (It is actually rated PG.) Is it worth seeing in the theater or would you hold out for Netflix? (I finally saw “Toy Story 3” this weekend.)
Is this the one we want to spend money on or are “Tangled”, “Yogi Bear”, or “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” better bets? I’ll be seeing the new Harry Potter but without the kids. (You have to read the books before you get to see the movie.)
