Tom and Jerry's Giant Adventure Review by Kids First

“Tom and Jerry’s Giant Adventure” - A Unique Film Filled with Surprises
Who among us doesn't secretly love watching Tom and Jerry, the classic cartoon characters that we've lived with since forever. Warner has created a new original movie, that finds our characters among the last animals living in Storybook Town, a fairy tale-inspired theme park "where dreams come true, if you believe." Jack is desperate to save the park from the hands of a greedy billionaire, setting out with his loyal cat and mouse friends to sell his prize cow for... some magic beans?! What follows is a journey up a beanstalk to a magical land ruled by a massively mean and hungry giant, and home to fun, fabled fellows like Droopy, Spike and even a golden goose! KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Gerry O comments, "This story is very different from the usual Tom and Jerry movies and definitely brings fresh air into this unique relationship between a mouse and a cat." See his full review below.

Video review available here.
I thought I knew what this movie would be about. I mean, what person doesn’t know who Tom and Jerry and their story are? Lady owns a mouse and a cat, and these two adorable creatures fight nonstop with each other, until they get in a big problem, right? Wrong! “Tom and Jerry’s Giant Adventure original movie” is a fun and adorable adventure for the whole family!
The moment I turned on my TV to watch this move, I could see this would be a unique Tom and Jerry film. It has, of course - comedy, adventure, thrilling action and many more things all in one film! This movie surprises you with a story of a mouse and a cat who at the end are best friends despite their differences!
The fun story begins when a young man wants to open an amusement park. The day it opens he meets a girl and falls in love with her. Years later the park gets run down and there’s only a cat, a mouse and a cow left. The man passed away and left behind his son and wife. A man is going to destroy the park but instead, something very surprising happens when Jack, the son, goes to sell the cow.
The movie is very entertaining and funny. The voice actors do a fantastic job of making you relate to their characters. If there is one thing to criticize is the fact that this animated movie feels a little rushed. This story is very different from the usual Tom and Jerry movies and definitely brings fresh air into this unique relationship between a mouse and a cat.
My favorite scene is when the animals realize that they are losing their home and Jack sings a song to make them feel better. It’s very catchy, and fun!          
Since this film is very child friendly and educational, I recommend it for ages 3 to 18. I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars because it is a tiny bit rushed and may be a bit confusing for younger kids because of that.

 CrazyDog TSHIRTS Review!!!!!

Like on Facebook
I had the extreme pleasure to review shirts from Crazy Dog Tshirts!!!!! I have everything positive to say about this company!! First the order was made with ease. SEcond, the shipping was VERY fast, and last- The product was not only impressive, but EVERYTHING you want in a T-shirt. Its not just what you want your t-shirt to say but the quality of your shirt. The shirt was soft and moveable but did not shrink to nothing in the wash. In addition, the print was put on the shirt very well!!
In the picture below the two men to the left are waring a shirt from Crazy Dog. The white shirt has a picture of a name tag that says "My name is Pat McGroin". This was a perfect match for this indvidual in so many ways. The whole party that day kept going back to focus in that shirt!!! :) The second individual is wearing a "If Zombies come I'm tripping you"! This shirt was also a big hit but was still liked less then the Pat shirt!!!
