Mr. Peabody

Being a mom of 3 I have sat threw my fair share of really terrible children's movies.  I am glad to say however that Mr. Peabody wasn't one of them.  This movie was very well thought out.  The plot was interesting and it wasn't even until my second time viewing it that I fully got the moral of the story.  I don't want to ruin it for anyone so

* * * *spoiler alert* * * *

The moral of the story was a cleverly hidden agenda about how love is love and how anyone should be able to adopt a child.  They no doubt will keep the average person in the dark about it though because I think I'm a rather smart individual and I only got it the second time around. The movie is so cute and has so many interesting characters that the message kind of gets lost on your average person.  For all I know maybe they didn't even intend for this to happen and maybe I'm not supposed to put the 2 and 2 together but I can't help but think it was intentional.  Honestly I don't see any reason why homosexuals shouldn't be able to adopt a child.  There are so many kids in the foster system that need good homes and so long as at least one parent in the relationship fully commits to being a parent till the child is of age I see nothing wrong with it.  I do not believe that homosexuality is contagious.  I do not believe that it would ruin a child's childhood to have two mom's or two dads.  A lot of kids don't have any dad.  Some kids don't have a mom.  Not saying being a single parent is easy but a kid would be better off with at least one decent parent figure in their life verses being stuck in the system till they get too old and get kicked out. 

Now that I understand the message of the  movie I like it even more.  Honestly I don't really remember the cartoon it was fashioned after I think maybe it was on around the time of Tom and Jerry and I never cared to watch it.  The movie was super cute though and it had jokes in it for kids and a few for adults as well.  I like movies that make me think.  MUCH MUCH MUCH better than that turd of the Lego movie.  And the moral of the Lego movie is what?  Let kids play with toys? Really?  Man that movie stunk. 

So anyways go see the Mr. Peabody movie with your kids.  Even if your a total homophobe you will still enjoy it. 

Until we meet again . . .
