We had a mommy/daughter date yesterday to see the new Goosebumps movie! Scored bargain tickets and spent $12 total for the both of us. Couldn't pass that up! I have to say that this was a pretty good movie! Lydia loved every bit of it. She is 9 years old and loves reading the books! So this was a great movie to take her to. If you haven't heard of it check out what it is all about:
Upset about moving from the big city to a small town, young Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets his beautiful neighbor Hannah (Odeya Rush). The teen is surprised to learn that Hannah's mysterious father is R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the famous author of the best-selling "Goosebumps" series. When Zach accidentally unleashes the monsters from the fantastic tales, it's up to Stine, his daughter and Cooper to return the beasts back to the books where they belong.
I knew that it would be a good movie, as soon as I seen that it had Dylan Minnette and Jack Black in it. Being that it is Halloween time, it was also the perfect time to go. This movie isn't scary at all, and I completely recommend it for school aged kids and little ones.
It does have some monsters in it, so be cautious, but nothing SCARY. If my 9 year old can like it, anyone can because she is a scaredy cat! I love how the entire movie was "go go go". It wasn't slow at all and from the beginning it had you wondering what was going to come next.
You can watch the trailer below to get excited!
SPOILER ALERT************ Do not read anymore if you don't want the movie spoiled.***
The parts that Lydia laughted the most about was then the Abominable Snowmangot distracted eating candy in the ice rink, and when the invisible kid smacked one of the kids in the car. I don't know why kids laugh when people get hurt, but yes.. my kid laughted. I liked the gnomes.. LOL. You have to watch it to see what I am talking about. It has a bit of a love story in it too. All of the monsters get released by Slappy (TheVentriloquist doll) and the books get burned, Zach, Champ and Hannah as well as R.L. Stine have to get them back in the book by writing a new story. In the end, Zach saves them all. Monsters terrorize the town and it makes for an adventurious movie!
Zach falls in love with Hannah (whom turns out to be a ghost that R.L. Stine made up in one of his books because he was lonely. She gets sucked back into the book, however, at the end of the movie. R.L. Stine pulls out a new book and Hannah is right there. He burns it and she gets to be here forever. I thought it was a super cute movie! Lydia loved it and I can't wait to buy it for her! I recommend this movie to anyone with kids or anyone that has a love for Goosebumps in general. I used to read the books and watch the shows on TV when I was a kid. I am happy my kid gets to experience it too.
