With effortless humor Teen Titans Go To The Movies wins you over almost as soon as it begins. It’s an animated superhero comedy film with a strong message about rejection and self-acceptance.
In a DC world where superhero success is measure by the ability of characters to get their own movies, Robin’s troubled that he won’t be seen as anything other than a sidekick, hence won’t ever get his own movie. He and the other Titans try so many things to correct this impression, including going back in time twice to erase and replace all the other heroes of the big league standing as competition, before settling to get their own archnemesis in the person of Slade Wilson, whom they hilariously refer to as Deadpool. 😂
With each mission comes an adventure a great lesson.
Teen Titans Go To The Movies is a perfect movie for kids; through music and perfectly timed, mindful jokes the true message of the movie’s unveiled. It’s one of those movies you don’t need to be around while your children watch as you’re sure they’re in safe hands, and would come out with a renewed belief in friendship, trust, forgiveness, and what it means to be successful.
1. Stan Lee’s cameo was hilarious even though it lasted for just seconds.
2. The BvS caricature “Martha” scene was hilarious.
