Last week, I alerted you of the Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension movie. We had a movie screening party at our house and had a fabulous time. If you missed it, you have another chance tomorrow, Saturday, August 13th on Disney XD.
Phineas and Ferb Movie Party
We started the party early with fun fireworks from American Fireworks. (full review coming)[slickr-flickr tag=phineasfireworks]
Once inside, we loaded the kids up with snacks and cool Phineas, Ferb, and Perry masks, and sat down for the premier of “Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension”. I wasn’t sure if it would feel like a “movie” or just a long Phineas and Ferb show, either way, I knew that the parents would be just as entertained as the kids. It was a fantastic, adventure-filled movie with even some quite emotional times as well. Kids and grown ups both can enjoy this well-made movie.
If you know anything about Phineas and Ferb, you know that their pet platypus, Perry is a secret agent. My favorite part of the entire movie was when the step brothers find out that Perry is a secret agent. It is filled with such emotion, the boys felt betrayed and Perry is so upset because he knew he had no option but to keep his secret identity, secret. What a life poor Perry led, torn because he knew that once the brothers know he is a secret agent, he woul be re-assigned to a new home. For a cartoon, they really pulled at my heart strings. In the same scene, Phineas scolds Perry by saying, “You could have been changing the litter box this whole time?!” Perry shrugs. Phineas warns, “We are not done with this discussion!”
The kids were laughing outloud the entire movie. It was full of adventure, of “doing the right thing”, and of good beating evil. The movie wrapped up with all being right in the world, in both the 1st and 2nd dimensions. Their minds were erased so that Perry could remain their platapus, yet perry held onto the memories of their biggest adventure ever with photos he uploaded to his computer.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzTyR2olvmQ[/youtube]
Throughout the party, we tested the kids’ knowledge on Phineas and Ferb and were able to award pretty cool prizes to the kids at the party. They were so excited. One boy said it was like Christmas!
The movie aired 3 times the next day, my family sat down together and watched it again, this time without any interruptions! I’m sure it will be aired several more time, you have another chance tomorrow, Saturday, August 13, 2011 on Disney XD.
Phineas and Ferb Merchandise
Last Christmas, my husband read an article about how Disney was releasing Phineas and Ferb merchandise intentionally slowly. We had a hard time finding Phineas and Ferb Christmas presents for my son, who is a big fan. It looks like Perry, Phineas, and Ferb are hitting the shelves big time now. The kids at our movie screening party were super excited to get their hands on the much=desired Phineas and Ferb merchandise!
