If you are looking for a cute child-friendly movie to see this Thanksgiving weekend- I recommend The Good Dinosaur. This was my first time to the movies with my 2 year old and we miraculously made it through the entire film, minus the 3D glasses. The movie kept us entertained and is an adorable story.
The story line is quite predictable but still had a great message. The main character Arlo was troubled by fear in his everyday life. The sequence of events challenged him to overcome his fears and see things in a new light. He is taken away from everything he knows and has to find his way in the world. Along the way he encounters many different tests and trials of survival.
The movie had great special effects and in 3D they were even more real. My favorite scene is when Arlo and his dad went running through the fields at night as the fireflies flew about- this was truly spectacular. The movie does not disappoint in the effects and gorgeous landscapes.
Overall this movie was charming! A true family friendly movie that we will definitely own in the future. Hope you will go and see this and share in Aly’s love of dinosaurs!
