Toy Story 3 was an excellent movie imo and one that I enjoyed immensely. It managed to convey a message while still being a children’s movie, something that many animated movies fail to do (eg Wall E). But was it really that simple to understand and appreciate? From what I gather the answer is yes. And thus a curious case follows:
I decided to go see TS3 at the cinema with a friend of mine who is obsessed with animated movies. And this was one that I was actually looking forward to. We arrived at the cinema to find it was half filled with parents and their children, the other half filled with couples, friends, singles. Funny enough it was not the children that I worried about but the inordinate number of tweens in our session.
My concern was to prove correct. True some kids cried, some asked their parents questions but they’re children and this is their movie. In addition they all laughed and enjoyed themselves which is all you can ask from the movie-goers of tomorrow.
Yet what really chapped my ass were the group of tweeny-boppers sitting in the row behind of us. They felt it was their duty to ruin the experience for those around them by talking and complaining throughout. Indeed one felt it was her duty to repeat ‘What the hellllllllllllll???’ at least every 10mins. Bound by societal expectations not to jump the row and beat her I can only look back at this experience with quiet anger and analyse things.
You see, the repetition of 'What the helllllllllllll???' throughout a showing of Toy Story 3 by a tween while 4yos got it can only mean one of a few things:
1) she exemplifies the failings of the education system
2) She's of normal intelligence and it actually represents the higher standard of preschool education that will lead to a generation of geniuses
3) She is a F**KING STUPID ANNOYING B**CH
