The Princess and the Frog - now with Cajun Seasoning!

Just a few thoughts as I sat through Disney's 'The Princess and the Frog' yesterday with my two kids.

1) Watching the previews, the kids are asking if we can go see the Jackie Chan "Spy Next Door" movie.


Not even a little.

I don't know what the fuck happened to that guy. Watching these previews, I think I'd rather watch Cloverfield again.

So, no. On your own here.

How old are you guys..6 and 9?

I'll drop you off. Have someone drive you home when it's over.

Fucking Jackie Chan. What a waste.

2) Jesus H. Christ. MORE SOUP?!?!?

If I see another fucking animated movie where characters make soup or cook or open a fucking restaurant or the movie is about soup, I swear I'm going to kill myself.

Rattatouille...Silence of the Lambs...Despereaux...Gladiator...The Princess and the Frog..

Seriously. Is this how script meetings go for movies these days:

Writer #1: "What do you want to make the movie about? It needs to be a BLOCKBUSTER."

Writer #2: "Hm. Blockbuster. I don't know. Soup?"

Writer #1: "BRILLIANT!!"

The fuck?

3) Thanks for including a character that's Cajun

A cajun firefly.

Like I don't have enough fucking trouble with accents, you've got this fucking thing.

Firefly: "Youza beeen wanttum to be gowing down da riva?"

* blink

My son: "..the fuck..?"

Nice call there, Disney.

You know, when the Cajun Cook was on TV, I accidentally made a pot roast misunderstanding what the fuck he was saying.

Apparently, he was just making gumbo or some shit.

Oh, great.

More fucking soup.

Overall, though, not a bad movie.

Some of the voodoo scenes might be a bit scary for little kids but, hey, fuck ''s Disney.

They'll get over it.

Or as the firefly would say:

"Theys uhgonna been geetin oba dat reeeeel soon, yessum."

Seriously, Disney.

What the fuck.

Ever watched Fantasia while stoned? It will totally screw you up...the kids too. What a great way to spend some quality time with your kids. Break out the cough syrup and slip in Fantasia. This is what God intended.

Good Dad! We will not be seeing this movie. but I do love soup and I miss the cajun chef.
Also, Don, how about Fantasia, stoned, at the IMax?

Yankee Girl said...

Is it okay to have soup for breakfast? Because that's all I can think about right now.

I'm glad I don't have kids yet and don't have to take them to Disney movies.

JD at I Do Things said...

Perhaps we could've traded place. I honored my mom's wish to go see "New Moon." There was no soup in THAT movie, as far as I can recall. But now that I think of it, one of the vampires had a Cajun accent, so you probably wouldn't have liked it.

Mr. Condescending said...

I like the movie where jackie chan eats so much egg drop soup he chokes and dies.

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

Fatal Attraction. Don't forget the soup in Fatal Attraction. That one involved bunny AND soup, so double cliche.

Fantasia scarred me for life!

Awww, come on! didn't you like Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., Shrek, etc.?

Tracie said...

I'm making Hubs take the kids next weekend. I couldn't deal with Disney today.

Ed said...

How come all Disney movies involve some form of Bestiality or Necrophilia?

Seriously, this is Disney, not Vivid!

I was hemming and hawing deciding if I was taking the kids to see this today. The answer turned out to be no, but now I'm considering crossing it off the list altogether.

Chris said...

Thank God my kids have outgrown Disney. I'll leave it at that.

Moooooog35 said...

Sorry..been sitting here trying to figure out when Cajun became a race.

I didn't NOT like the was okay...

But would have been better had I not had to explain wtf VOODOO was to my 6 year old. I probably could have left out the part about killing chickens and shit, but whatever.

Ducky said...

All we watch is the Outdoor Channel in our house. My kid doesn't even know what Disney is. Hear me? DOES.NOT.KNOW what Disney is....thank God!

I am SO GLAD my son is too old to see these movies anymore!

Ohhhh, I loved the Cajun cooking guy. I forgot all about him. Thanks for the memories. I didn't need the movie review, though, because my kids are too old to be interested in it. So I get to see movies I want to see. Well, mostly, anyway. I did have to see that Sandra Bullock movie this summer. I let my wife pick once in a while.
