Teen Titans Go! To the Movies
87 minutes | rated PG
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is much like an extended version of the popular Cartoon Network series featuring DC Comics teen super hero team of Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Starfire, and Beast Boy. The film opens with Balloon Man attacking Jump City. The Titans try to stop him and he has never heard of them. While the Titans are performing a song to introduce themselves, the Justice League shows up and takes care of things on their way to the premiere of Batman’s latest movie directed by super hero movie director Jade Wilson. Robin dreams of having his own movie and is disappointed to find out that people consider him nothing more than a sidekick. The Titans try to get into the premiere and are shocked that they are not on the list, and even the Challengers of the Unknown are on the list. So, Robin, and the team set out to prove that they are worthy of having their own movie.
The movie pokes fun at the super hero movie. It includes the voice cast from the Cartoon Network show as well as some celebrity voices such as Jimmy Kimmel, Nicolas Cage, Halsey, Kristen Bell, Will Arnett, and Michael Bolton. There are quite a few comic book references in the signage on the buildings for fans to catch, as well as an unexpected Stan Lee cameo. Several more obscure DC Comics characters also make appearances.
Fans of the Cartoon Network show will love it, there is enough there that parents will not get bored with it. Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is rated PG for some mildly rude humor and should be fine for most viewers. I have seen better movies, but this is far from the worst. I rate it three out of five singing tigers.
