Why aren't more people talking about this movie? It's so funny and deserves much more recognition. Trust me, it isn't as childish as you think it would be. A lot of jokes would probably fly over a kid's head. The songs are KILLER.
I can't lie, I grew up watching the original Teen Titans show and was originally iffy on the concept of Teen Titans Go, with its different animation and departure from the serious storytelling the original had. But watching the Teen Titans Go show was nothing but a great time; it's a crazy funny show.
The movie takes everything that makes Teen Titans Go great and dials it to 1,000. It's very similar to The Lego Batman Movie, in that it's very self-referential, has a joke almost every five seconds and is an absolute joy to watch the whole way through multiple times. When the characters aren't spouting one-liners, there's a background visual gag that'll have you laughing, or a subtle reference that'll have comic fans giggling endlessly. Seriously, this movie is a blast for both kids and adults.
It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies-everyone but the Teen Titans, that is. But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously super villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line.
In the interest of disclosure I generally find the newer incarcerations of the teen titans to be obnoxious. So it is odd to freely admit that not only did I enjoy this movie, but laughed almost as hard as my son at it. If like me you have a distaste for TTG or even the now newer shorts I would advise against quickly dismissing this too quickly. Because also like me you may be surprised by it being not only better than you’d think, but also thoroughly enjoyable despite its pedigree.
