My kids were happy to miss a day of school for the long awaited movie Epic. I told them Pit Bull who plays (Bufo the frog) would be attending as well and they were excited. This was an #epicmamarazzi screening thanks to @themoms. The screening took place Wednesday May 22nd at the Empire on west 42nd street at 11:00 a.m.
A lot of parents said they wish their kids would get to school on time the way they got to the screening early. My kids met up with their friends and were treated to free concession snacks and pictures with none other than Pit Bull and an autograph. He is very nice and wanted to give autographs for the kids and take pictures with almost everyone even though he was in a rush to another engagement. He said he was raised in a single parent home by his mom and encouraged the kids to listen to their moms and go for your dream.
Epic is a great 3D animation movie for the whole family to see and my family and I are definitely on the Leaf Men side. This ongoing battle in the forest between good and evil makes you want to put on your gear and protect the forest. Beyonce, Steven Tyler, and Amanda Seyfried were also part of the cast. I have to say I was in tears for a few parts but other than that it was great and funny, especially the slugs who had us laughing throughout the movie. All the characters were great!!
We had a great time and will see it again with our cousins.
Enjoy the pictures!
