It’s not a common occurrence that a movie is released and every single one of us gets excited about. AJ my 12 year old is slowly shifting his taste in movies, my husband and I truly can only take so much of kid themed movies and our two preschoolers love nothing more than to see an animated film. This makes a trip to the theater interesting, usually. After learning about EPIC The Movie we where enthralled to check it out. EPIC the movie has been done with the older kid in mind. I love that it has a focus for the pre-teen age, but still has the ability to capture the younger ones. My oldest put the trailer on for us and we where excited that the movie captured all of our interest.
To get our evening started I whipped up another of my healthy meal solutions. The EPIC Tyson Chicken Nuggets and Del Monte Green Beans meal from my Sam’s Club purchase last week. The Tyson Chicken Nuggets are an easy way to get our protein fix. We all agree these 100% natural nuggets are our favorite.
A bed of ziti noodles, spaghetti sauce, Tyson chicken nuggets with mozzarella cheese and a side of Del Monte green beans. This healthy meal solution turned into a big deal. We had an hour to spare before we needed to leave for the movie and my husband and I L-O-V-E chicken Parmesan so this was our take on the 20 minute dish. And we scored. This was a fun and easy meal that had us all happy, full and ready to head out to see EPIC the Movie.
Cowboys and all…
Tickets in hand for EPIC the movie.
EPIC the Movie in 3D did not disappoint. EPIC is from the creators of ICE AGE and RIO. This heartwarming tale is centered around MK a girl who’s mother died and she goes to spend time with her father. Her dad a quirky and obsessed creature who is searching to find proof that another world exists in the forest. MK who finds herself pulled into the forest learns about the good and evil that does exist beyond the realms of the only life she knew. The battle of the leafmen and boggens kept the boys entertained throughout the entire 1 hour and 42 minute film. We all enjoyed the story line and found ourselves in love with Mub & Grub the slugs and funny men of the movie.
We had a fantastic family night. The perfect healthy meal solutions dinner with our 100% Natural Tyson’s Chicken Nuggets and side of Del Monte Green Beans. AJ has made it very clear that having a fun chicken nugget dinner and trip to the movies is the perfect family night, that he doesn’t want to miss out on. I am making every effort to make this a monthly tradition. My husband was very happy to have a healthy Chicken nugget meal to hold the kids over through the movie. This is a great movie that my husband and I loved. We fell in love with Amanda Seyfried’s character MK. The little one’s enjoyed the movie from beginning to end. And AJ loved it and even left reciting his favorite lines. This is definitely a must see and we all gave it 2 thumbs up.
