Who has time, really? I take a few days off work and I still worry about work and it’s a constant chatter in the back of my mind. I try to switch it off and most days it works but it does get the better of me at times.
Then Zootopia rolls in and my big kid and I can’t wait to see it in the theatre. Even the hubby wants to watch it. So, finally, there we are at the theatre lining up to get our tickets. Only problem is, the tickets for the timeslot we want to watch is
Talk about disappointment. There we were, in the lineup, trying to decide if we’d stick around for a later show. In the end, we decided to purchase tickets for the later afternoon show and spent a few hours just hanging out together as a family. We talked, we laughed, and we had a lot of fun.
Zootopia was well worth the wait and certainly helped to end the day on a positive note. If you need an easy children’s movie to watch with a lot of wit and action, this just might be the one for you.
Children’s Movie Review: what is Zootopia about?
I won’t go in to full details about the movie because I bet you could find a million other reviews that will do that for you. By now, you probably know Zootopia focuses on animals living much as we do. Judy Hopps is a bunny with the biggest heart and aspirations to become a police officer. Of course, most mammals can’t even begin to imagine an innocent, tiny, cute little rabbit as a police officer but boy does she prove them all wrong. Along the way, Judy Hopps meets a fox named Nick Wilde and that is when all the fun begins.
Zootopia though is much more than just a bunch of animals wearing clothes. There are a lot of important life lessons hidden within this gem of a movie.
Zootopia reminds us not to judge others based solely on outward appearances or by the acts of others that are of the ‘same kind’. Foxes aren’t all bad and rabbits can indeed become police officers.
Zootopia also reminds us not to let our lives be determined by past events. Although Judy Hopps was ridiculed and picked on as a young rabbit for wanting to become a police officer, she stayed focused and determined and graduated at the top of her class from the police academy. I won’t go in to full details but I can tell you Nick Wilde’s life was equally affected by past events. Let’s just say both bunny and fox met each other at a perfect time in their lives for big changes to happen. My big kid and I certainly had some great discussions after the movie sparked by what we saw in the movie.
The movie is laced with funny antics and jokes that tickled young and old alike. There are sloths working at a place that you’d never imagine but you’ll laugh hysterically when you see what they do for a living and wait until you meet this guy (no, I won’t tell you who he is either).
Would I watch Zootopia again? Totally. It’s visually fascinating and incredibly creative. The entire family loved the movie and judging by all the laughter in the theatre, I’d say everyone else did too. It’s an easy movie to watch with a happy ending and some valuable life lessons thrown in for good measure. The best part about watching the movie was spending some time with the family.
I mean, what more could I ask for?
