Monsters vs Aliens

All prepared to fall asleep during the movie, I went with my three excited kids to watch Monsters vs Aliens. Their ramblings about some monsters turned heroes didn't excite me a bit. The only piece of info I managed to quickly read about this movie was that one of the monsters' voices is Reese Witherspoon's. I thought since she is one of the greatest artists alive, it's worth watching.

Well I got my time and money's worth! Albeit simple in terms of plot, the movie is lesson-packed; promoting values such as appreciating family and friends, of not judging a book by its cover, of bravery, and of...rejecting useless guys with style!

My usual preference is movies packed with humorous lines, but Monsters vs Aliens is not bad at all. Susan aka Genormica the sweet monster is just adorable. And her monster friends are definitely monsters with big hearts.

The kids, and their mom have thoroughly enjoyed it :-)
