Movie Mom

Nell Minow (aka Movie Mom) says “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” is a great film out in theatres for your family this weekend.  She recommends it for kids in 4th and 6th grade and up.

There’s a 3D version out too!  Just know that they don’t make 3D glasses that are kids size and if your kids get scared when things jump out at them, the regular version will be just right for them!

For a Date Night Movie She also loves “The Informant” .  It’s not for kids!  It’s rated R for language, but she says it’s a fascinating acting performance by Matt Damon who gained 30 pounds for his role!
