So last time Mr. F was home while I was at work he ordered a pizza, wing, and fry combo to arrive shortly after I got home from work. So sweet, right? Even sweeter, it came with a 2 for 1 Cineplex coupon and since he was leaving to go back to work before we would get a chance to use it he said I could use it with my BFF while he was gone, so that I could still do things “on him while he was gone” is the reason he gave. Such a sweety.
But anyways, Me and my BFF and another friend went and saw the late showing of Monkey Kingdom, the new Disney Nature film. And to be honest, I have mixed feelings about it.
BTW me and my friends were the only ones in the theater that’s why I took pictures at the beginning!!!!!!!!!!!
It was a very cute story line and did have amazing shots of the beautiful landscape of Sri Lanka, however the narration… It kinda killed me.
Tina Fey narrated it, which would normally be great for any nature show… but for adults, not so much for children. Monkey Kingdom is a childrens movie, I know, but the narration was pretty corny and knowing it was Tina behind the voice made it even cornier… Mainly because I feel in my soul she was dying to burst out the monkey boned jokes. I feel like if they wanted a celeb to narrate it they should have gotten someone sweet and harmless like Anne Hathaway.
I saw they make an adult version of Monkey Kingdom, but this time Tina Fey does her own narration… Maybe even pull in Amy Poehler for some back vocals on the monkeys, lol.
However all in all it was a good, cute, children’s movie…… Has nothing on Lion King though….
If you have kids they will love it or if you just like animal shows you probably will too!
Happy blogging and happy movie watching!
