Kung Fu Panda

We don't get out to movies much, and this certainly wasn't at the top of our list, but since we are on vacation and looking for things to do with Renee's girls while we are out here, we caught this today. This movie is all but gone from theaters. We were the only ones in the theater for the last showing if the day, right around lunchtime... So I assume if you're reading this, you are wondering if it's worth the rental or if it's worth buying in DVD.

The movie is entertaining, and the girls seemed to enjoy it. It also has a good message about self confidence & belief. What Kung Fu Panda is missing is that second level of humor (one that the kids don't get but the adults do) that is often to me what makes kids movies enjoyable. The movie also is slow at points, because there is only so much you can do with animals and kung fu...

Worth renting? Sure. Buy it sight unseen? No.
