We just left the movie Bolt. I think it was the best movie--animated or live action--that I've seen in a long time. The basic story line is a TV dog who has been raised on the set. He never leaves the set. He thinks he has super powers. At the end if each episode, Bolt saves Penny, his peerson. Until they do a cliff hanger episode. Believing Penny is in danger, he takes off to find her. The movie chronicles his cross country journey back to Penny. Along the journey he makes some new friends and discovered he does not really have super powers. But he also learns that he doesn't need super powers to be a hero.
The 3D effects were incredible. There were a few scenes where it looked like things were flying into or out of the audience. But most of the effects just made the picture pop.
Chewie brought along his friend and at 11 they still laughed and ducked. Munchie (3) and Crunchy (5) sat still for most of the movie (That is a rarity for them.) Munchie did take off the glasses about 20 minutes into the movie.
This was definitely a great family friendly movie.
