:: Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos:: #HuevoCartoon

It was an on and off rainy day in Houston last Saturday during our Labor Day weekend. We were feeling a little lazy so we planned a late, LATE showing of a new movie. We had seen the previews for it and then my Husband made it into areal life plan for us to go watch it. He showed the kids preview after preview so they would get excited. Well that didn't take long and after 8 hours of "Mom is it Movie time yet?", we finally made it. The theater filled quickly and a little unexpected for a 10pm showing of an all Spanish movie on a Saturday night. We secured seats and snacks. 

Now a little background on the Spanish language in our home. My Husband and I are completely fluent we can speak, read and write it. My kids started off fluent and my son has now started to fall off wagon.  But, my Cami has started to catch on strong. Santiago, doesn't like to be left behind so has also started to try and speak more Spanish and of course they both understand it. Our families both speak Spanish, all the time. You must at least understand around us. We definitely try to work on it and often get the kids to speak more Spanish around the house. I personally have a bad habit of speaking English at home. One that I need to break if I want my children to keep learning Spanish. 

Back to the movie. The humor was on point and very much for adults. But, when isn't it. I heard more adults laugh than kids most the night. It's pretty funny. If you offend easily, it might not be for you. My children understood the overall message of true bravery and overcoming your fears to reach your goals. The jokes, went right over their heads. They did laugh at the funny moments; like when el Gallito, Toto was being trained to become a Gallo de pelea to help save their ranch.

Y los Huevos? Well those Eggs were on a whole other level, if you know the eggs from their YouTube stardom then you know what to expect. But, yes the concept is very funny and the overall message is a strong one. To be courageous no matter how insignificant or weak you might think you are.  Hay que tener huevos para ganar!

Not to make it any less but if you are reading the subtitles to this movie, it won't be the same. The literal translations and absence of translation, will not be as funny. There is nothing like knowing the language, understanding the comedy and enjoying it. I give it BIG Huevos for a great new Spanish comedy movie!
