Unless you are a mom who lives under a rock (not just one who wants to crawl under one before your kids start school), you must have heard of a little movie called The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure.
Well, my family got the opportunity to see the movie at the Premiere in New York on Monday, and we (and in particular, my three and a half year old) LOVED IT!
Besides, the opportunity to sing and dance in the aisles along with all the other kids in the theater (without being told to ‘sit down’ or be ‘shushed’), my daughter absolutely adored the “funny” characters, like the grumpy but well-meaning fish Ruffy, and the scrappy, independent,Toofie (the best climber in LovelyLoveville). I also loved that nobody’s mama or papa got killed or threatened at any time during the totally G-rated, non-violent film. And even more fun, the celebrities (like Cloris Leachman, Toni Braxton, Christopher Lloyd, and Jamie Pressley) are along for the ride.
The ﬁlm follows the Oogieloves – Goobie, Zoozie and Tooﬁe – as they set out to ﬁnd ﬁve magical golden balloons in time for their good friend Schluufyʼs surprise birthday party. With the help of their best friends, J. Edgar, Windy Window and Ruffy, and the support of many extraordinary new friends whom they meet along the way, the Oogieloves travel throughout all of beautiful LovelyLoveville on their search. They’ll need plenty of creative thinking, teamwork and enthusiasm to rescue these one-of-a-kind balloons in time for the big celebration. But when the Oogieloves work together with the audience, they can achieve anything! Check out more of the action at The Oogieloves.
And now I have a bunch of tickets to give away to see The Oogieloves on this Friday, August 31. Just comment on this blog post, and the winners (of four free tickets each) will be selected based on the most creative comments of why you would love to get these tickets. Also, say which theater you would like to see the movie at on Friday. The tickets will be left at the theater for the winning families.
Good luck!! The Winners will be selected at 3:00 pm tomorrow (Thursday, August 30).
