Teen Titan’s Go! To the Movies is an animated comedy that largely target children. However, if you’ve been a fan of the more serious Teen Titans cartoon, of the more lighthearted Teen Titans Go!, or of superhero properties in general and want to see them made fun of, then you may enjoy this movie as well.
Go! To the Movies takes place in the DC Comics superhero universe, but it often breaks the fourth wall in order to parody and make jokes about the superhero genre and pop culture in general. Robin (Batman’s sidekick), Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire, and Cyborg are the teenage superheroes that make up the Teen Titans. After discovering that most people think the Teen Titans are a joke, Robin and the gang decide that the only way to be taken seriously is to make their own superhero movie, much like their more respectable peers. In their pursuit of becoming truly respectable superheroes, they discover a dastardly plot and they must defeat this new villain while also learning about what truly matters.
It’s a plot with themes that have been done before ad nauseam. However, if you’re here to a good story, you’ve come to the wrong place. The appeal of this film largely like that of Deadpool’s, except rated PG. You’re coming to this movie to see these goofy teen superheros make constant jokes on the superhero genre and constantly poke fun at various elements of pop culture.
While a lot of the jokes did not land for me, many did. Specifically, one joke involving Batman’s parents and time travel was especially funny to me. I was also impressed by the licensed music they were able to get their hands on for this movie.
Overall, the movie was okay. I think it’s a fine movie to bring your kids to, especially if they liked the televised cartoon. I don’t think it’s a great movie for adults. Additionally, Superman is voiced by Nicolas Cage, which is just awesome.
