Dora and Diego on the Big Screen product reviews

Go on two exciting new adventures with Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!

Dora's Easter Adventure
Dora and Boots are waiting for their friend, the Hip-Hop-Bunny, to bring his basket filled with eggs and treats for their big Egg Hunt! But just as the Bunny arrives at the forest, Swiper swipes the basket and throws it far, far away into the Rainbow Garden - where it's headed for a waterfall! Oh no! We've gotta save the Bunny's basket! It's Dora and Boots to the rescue as they join the Bunny on an Easter Day Adventure: singing the Hip-hop-Bunny's Easter Song; going past the itchy-scratchy flowers at the Garden; through the Petting Zoo; and racing down the Rainbow River on a giant rubber ducky to save the basket! Dora catches the basket just in time and we head home for a big Easter Egg Hunt with all of our friends! What an Eggciting Adventure!

Diego's Rainforest Race
Diego goes on a Rainforest Race, and animals have come from all over to compete: a puma team, a howler monkey team, and a spectacled bear team. Then a cute little Armadillo comes along - she doesn't have a team but she really wants to be in the race. Diego and the viewer join Armadillo's team and set off to win the race. First, they dodge falling nuts from the Shaky Nut Trees. Then, Armadillo rolls into a ball to get down the Muddy Mud Hill. At the last obstacle, the Big Mountain, Armadillo digs a tunnel as we sing the 'excava' song, and suddenly Armadillo's team takes the lead. Will they win the race?!

I went to see Dora and Diego on the Big Screen with my husband and our two daughters (3 and 4.5). Both girls are huge fans of both Dora and Diego but I would say the eldest is more a Dora fan and the youngest more a Diego fan. My three year old has never been to the movies before and since this was one Dora episode and one Diego episode of about 30 minute each it seemed like the ideal opportunity. The others in the theatre were all parents with preschoolers too, so I knew I didn't have to stress about my girls getting restless or chatting through the movie as other parents would be understanding. When we bought our tickets I was very pleasantly surprised to be told that all seats were $7. A real bargain.

I certainly didn't need to worry about my girls being restless, in fact none of the kids disrupted the theatre. They had their eyes glued to the screen the whole time shouting out to Dora and Diego. My husband took this as a chance to catch up on sleep but he wasn't the target audience and he had only come along for crowd control, which wasn't needed.

My only gripe was at the start and the end of the screening were ads for NickJr. I know all theatres have ads but there were no previews for anything else at the theatre. There were ads for NickJr (channel 44), the Dora and Diego DVDs that these episodes were on (being released this month) and a Dora toy. My husband's only criticism was that the shading of the characters wasn't consistent throughout each scene. I hadn't even noticed.

Dora's Easter Adventure screened first. This featured the Hip-Hop-Bunny. As his name suggests the rabbit speaks in hip-hop and at times the other characters do too. I was in hysterics when The Map started his rap. It was so unlike him and made a pleasant change for the usual pattern of Dora programmes. The other thing I noticed in this adventure was that although this was about Easter eggs none of the eggs were chocolate. They all contained gifts. At one point when the eggs were being scattered I wondered how cool it would be to be watching this in 3D and sneak an egg onto the kids' laps.

Diego's Rainforest Race followed straight afterwards. It was different from any Diego episode I've seen before as he isn't trying to rescue an animal, instead he is in a race through the rainforest with other animals. He is on the armadillo's team, competing against the spectacled bears, pumas and howler monkeys. Throughout we learn about qualities of the armadillo and how he uses these to keep up with the larger animals. In true Diego style we also learn that helping others and sharing is more important than winning. I did miss Click the Camera but also enjoyed the change of format.

It was great that there were no credits between the two shows as I thought this would make the kids restless. Instead they had a split screen at the end and did both lots of credits at once. As a result of my girls enjoying the screening so much and being so well behaved I have promised them that I will take them, by myself, to see Hi-5 at the movies when it is released in a couple of weeks.

Product reviews for listing 3707: Seeking a Friend for the End of the World -  Directed by Lorene Scafari

Product image for Seeking a Friend for the End of the WorldA 70 mile wide asteroid is en route to Earth and the last best attempt to counter it has failed. Also failing is the marriage of soft spoken insurance salesman Dodge. The breaking news that the world will end in an estimated 21 days cues his wife to leave him on the spot.

Dodge is a man who has always played by the rules of life, while Penny his neighbour is an extroverted woman who hasn't. From these opposite perspectives, both ... more...
