What better way to know if a movie is child-worthy than to hear it from a child? My son reviewed the movie Alpha and Omega as we left the theatre ten minutes early for a refill on popcorn that was clearly more interesting than the movie itself. I will let my four year old son’s review speak for itself.
Before the movie, he was excited and hopeful: “I can’t wait to see Alpha and Omega. They are cute wolves - I hope they end up together and not separate, though.” (I wanted to guarantee him that would probably happen, but I did not want to spoil the movie.)
Here’s what mini-Levy had to say (A Q & A with my son):
Jew Mama: “Did you like Alpha And Omega?”
Son: I am disappointed. The movie isn’t what I thought it would be; no funny parts, no music and not so many cute characters. Really, you know, I think it was boring. Why did they have to hurt the wolves and take them away? It makes me sad. This should be for kids, but I don’t think it is.”
JM: Why do you think it was boring?
Son: I don’t know. You have to ask the people that made the movie - they made it that way - boring!
JM: What would you tell other kids if they asked if they should see the movie?
Son: I would tell them - No…but the popcorn was tasty.
See, I told you so…but why take it from me? Take it from a four year old.
