There is No Secret Ingredient

“I’m not a fat panda.  I’m the fat panda!”


We watched Kung Fu Panda with my mom* and the kids tonight.  Why did I think this movie looked so dumb in the previews?  IT WAS FANTASTIC!

And I’ll admit it – I got a bit verklempt at the ultimate moral of the story.  An awkward, goofy, ambitious without commensurate skill panda learns to use what he’s got, make the most of himself, and understand that HE is ENOUGH.

And it was sooooooo stinking funny!  Oh my word, it was funny.

Good message, good fun.  GREAT movie!

*we are having a great visit with my mom, despite the fact that it’s raining like crazy this week.  What’s up with that?  They even issued a tornado warning for a nearby county.  Welcome to Texas, Mom!


  • We had a family movie night on Monday with that one too! I thought Bobby would wet his pants he was laughing so hard. Our new line is “There is no charge for awesomeness.”

  • I also dismissed it based on the previews. Guess I’ll have to check it out! 🙂

  • We saw this in the theater and loved it! It is one we are going to buy.
