Muppets Most Wanted Movie Review

I’ve never done a movie review before. {just warning you 😉 }  I was a huge fan of the Muppet’s when I was younger.  I remember gathering in the living room to watch it on TV with my family.  I wasn’t sure if I would like them as much as an adult.  I don’t know why, because I enjoyed the Muppet’s 4D movie experience at both Disney Land and Disney World.  I still absolutely adore the Christmas John Denver & The Muppets.  It’s one of my favorite Christmas albums I play year after year.  I think I saw the very first Muppet movie when my kids were younger, but I admit I haven’t seen the others.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised.  I sat next to my 15 year old Son, who wasn’t super thrilled to be going.  I think that’s understandable from a teenage boy.  He didn’t particularly like the parts when they would break out into song like they do in musicals.  He’s not a musical kind of guy, though.  However, there were a couple of times where I heard him laugh out loud.  Those moments were priceless for me.  I could stop this review right now and say there ya go, it’s worth going if my teenaged son laughed.

The Muppets Most WantedI thought it was definitely worth going to.  And I’m not just saying this because Disney gave us free tickets to the screening.  As an adult, this movie reminded me of the old Muppet Show and brought back good memories.  Can’t you hear the tune playing in the back of your mind?  I think adults will particularly like the movie, which is good, because sometimes kid friendly movies aren’t as much fun for the parents.  I laughed throughout the whole movie.  There is a plot, yet I’m not the kind of reviewer who will talk on and on about the plot.  I think that ruins the movie if you know all about it before hand.  I find I enjoy movies more when I don’t know much about them beforehand.  I will say there are some celebrities who make an appearance.

I give this two thumbs up!  This is a perfect family movie.  Plan a movie night or day this weekend and take your kids to see Muppets Most Wanted.  You won’t be disappointed.

Springtime With Roo DVD Giveaway

According to my calendar, this Thursday, March 20th is the official first day of Spring.

Hooray!  Spring is my favorite season because I love color.  I look forward to watching the tulips blooming, the green grass sprouting, the butterflies fluttering.  I also enjoy the sun’s presence on a more daily basis.  This winter has seemed exceptionally long and filled with much more snow, cloudy days, ice and colder temps than I prefer.  So I’m happy to say goodbye to Winter and welcome to Spring!

The Muppets Most Wanted

You and your family are invited to attend an early screening of the newest Disney movie, MUPPETS MOST WANTED. Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon, and Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard.

Five Pins You Want On Your Pinboard

I think Pinterest is an awesome way to bookmark ideas we love.

5 genius pins I've used and recommend from familybringsjoy.com

Today I wanted to share 5 pins I have actually used and would recommend.  They happen to be pinned on my Genius pinboard.  Once you see the pins you will realize why I used that title.

Genius

1. Being the creative person I am, I fell in love with using washi tape on our phone chargers.  This way we know whose charger belongs to who and it looks pretty dang cute too!

organization

2. A thermostat on the wall is not very pleasing to the eye.  I didn’t use a hinged canvas like you see below, but I did put a wooden sign over an ugly security system pad…looks much better.

3. The next pin is how to remove all writing off plastic containers to then use as storage or gift containers.  If you have finger nail polish remover in your house or acetone, you’re in business.  Put some on a rag and the writing rubs right off.  It works my friends!

4. Now that I have such short hair I don’t need my straightener anymore…at least not for my hair.  My straightener has found a permanent home in my craft room.  It is absolutely the perfect way to iron wrinkled ribbon.  I love to use ribbon for home decor, scrapbooking, crafting and wrapping gifts.  It makes ironing ribbon a snap!

5. If you have been visiting Family Brings Joy for a while now, then you know how much I use blue painters tape.  I use it for so many things but I was delighted to find the following pin.  It has made hanging up those certain frames with the holes in the back a cinch to hang.  Use your tape to put in between the 2 holes.  Then take the tape off the frame and stick it to your wall.  I usually use a level on the tape so I know it will be level.  Then hammer your nails on the ends of the tape.  Pull off the tape and voila you are ready to hang your frame.  It has made my life so much easier!
