Yesterday I went to the dollar theater in Matthews with a friend to see the movie "The School of Rock."
I was pleasently surprised. It was really funny (good for a comedy) and was smarter than many many of the so-called children's movies I have seen occasionally. Don't get me wrong, it's no "Southpark: Bigger, longer and uncut" but I did laugh outloud several times.
I am always impressed by movies like "School of rock," "Shrek" and "Toy Story" that are able to amuse children and adults at the same time on different levels. I think the formula was perfected with Bugs Bunny cartoons and hasn't changed a whole lot since then.
