I was given the chance to review the new movie just released to DVD from director Bibo Bergeron, A Monster in Paris. My kiddos (ages 2, 5 and 12) were so excited to have movie night this weekend. Since the story is based in Paris, France we had a little tea party and treats just for the movie!
I like that the movie had gorgeous songs, it made my little girls want to get up dance. The story was about a monster that turns out to not really be a monster at all, but a gentle,sweet, talented creature. It teaches kids not to judge even though something or someone might look different.
My kids enjoyed watching this movie and so did I. I would definitely recommend A Monster in Paris for your next family movie night!
Paris, 1910. Panic sweeps the city as floodwaters rise and a monster is on the loose!
Meanwhile a wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend, and a madcap monkey are on a mission to protect the beast, Franc, as he holds a rare and special talent. With the help of the beautiful but feisty singer Lucille, the team harbors the monster to keep him from the ghastly wannabe Mayor, Commissioner Maynott, who has a plan to capture Franc and reveal him to be nothing more than a monstrous danger to the people of Paris.
From Bibo Bergeron, the director of Shark Tale, and starring Adam Goldberg, Jay Harrington, Bob Balaban, Sean Lennon, Vanessa Paradis, Danny Huston and Catherine O’Hara, A Monster In Paris is spectacular fun for the whole family
