Kung Fu Panda Review

Jackie Chan, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, and Jack Black. What do all of these folks have in common? They were all part of one the greatest animated Martial Arts film since Mulan teaching parents and children alike that things can become special when people believe they are. Jack Black caught my attention in School of Rock. I've been a fan since. This was a major attraction to this movie for me. I knew if he was voicing the main character, Po then it had to be good. I wasn't disappointed. This poor guy starts out with about as much ability to Kung Fu as me and I must admit that this is NOT great. But, with enough determination and torment we can become anything as is proved in this movie. I could give you a play by play of the movie, but you can type Kung Fu Panda in your search engine of choice and read all about it. What I will tell you is that it is out NOW on DVD and my family liked it. I have a three year old son that will not sit still for a 30 minute cartoon on the Disney channel. He watched the entire 88 minute DVD. He loved it and he wanted to watch it again as soon as it was over. I can assure you that the wrapped and ready DVDs that are available in stores now will be under my tree for my neices and nephews this year.  If you'd like more information on this or other Dreamworks pictures, you can click here.  Now, I'm off to learn Po's moves.  I need to lose some of this holiday weight I've gained already! If you need a quick gift they are on the shelves "wrapped and ready" for the holidays. You can grab one on the way to your destination with no wrapping needed!

My mom took my oldest to see that in the theater and he liked. It was going to be a Christmas gift from his uncle.. well hubs and gamgam, MIL, had already bought copies.

It's a very cute movie. I too love Jack Black he really brings Po to life in a really funny way.
