The Teen Titans Go movie is now playing in theaters everywhere. My kids and I got to see it a few days ago and enjoyed the humor in the movie but found some parts inappropriate especially for younger kids. Find out the good and the bad in our review below and see if it’s appropriate for kids. Warning there are spoilers in this post!
Marvel characters make several cameos in the film such as the character Slade being a replica to Deadpool, an appearance by Stan Lee and more. I was unsure if they were making fun of the characters or what. You can be the judge when you see it.
Bringing Back the 80’s
I love that they added some 80’s flashbacks in the film such as Back to the Future scene and 80’s music which was great for the adults to understand.
Humor for the Kids
Throughout the film, there is great humor for the kids such as popping and farting jokes that will make them laugh. If your kids already watch Teen Titans on TV them you know their humor but there is a bit more. Keep reading.
The film is not rated G, it is rated PG for the rude humor. There were several parts that I thought was a bit much for a kids film such as using the word murder, tangling Aquaman in a soda can plastic ring and the end of the credits comment. That comment would be from Robin. He says, “Ask your parents where babies come from”. If you want to avoid that I would suggest leaving before that otherwise you may have some explaining to do.
About the Movie
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! Teen Titans GO! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.
It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
