MOVIES ‘R’ FUN: The Pre-(Film)School Book That’s Not for Preschoolers
By Kristen Rutherford on February 13, 2014
Having a baby can be the most incredible, amazing, life changing experience. But if you’re a new parent that is a true aficionado of the cinema, there’s one cold, harsh reality that sets in almost immediately following the blessed event. This tiny child, this little human in your arms that is beginning their journey on the road of life… will not be able to watch some of the best moments of the silver screen until he or she is at least SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD.
This is exactly what happened to Josh Cooley – a story supervisor at Pixar Animation Studios. When he realized he wouldn’t be able to share his favorite films with his newborn daughter for many years to come, instead he immediately set to work. The result is the hilarious parody “Movies R Fun,” a tongue-in-cheek easy-reader style book made up of classic scenes from films like Alien, Rosemary’s Baby, A Clockwork Orange, and Silence of The Lambs.
While this book is for children at heart, it’s probably not something that should be read to a child at bedtime.
