The Comic Critic Reviews "How to Train Your Dragon"

My wife and I went to see “How to Train Your Dragon” in 3D. She has a soft spot for kid-oriented films and we both enjoy this new 3D technology. I was expecting a fairly standard movie with a predictable storyline. Then I was happily surprised by the storyline, the well-written dialog filled with dry wit, and also realized just how much I love comically large, muscular Vikings with strong Scottish accents. This movie, a real treat, will hold up well into the future, even without 3D effects. Don’t feel bad if you miss seeing it in the theater, but give it a view, definitely.
