Sid the Science Kid the Movie Review
The story is about Sid and Gabriella winning a contest to go to the newly built science museum. They met with 2 other kid scientists from China (Yangyang and Nunu) who also won the contest. They met the professor who built the museum. He showed them the solar system and introduced them to his robots. What sticked to my mind among the robots was the robot who changes dirty diapers of babies. LOL. Imagine if that was real!Then they met Bobby Bot who would tour them around the museum. They first went to the dinosaur world where Bobby Bot showed them the T-Rex and made it roar. They next went to the beehive where they saw super big bees the size of humans. They then went to a room that looks about playground and was taught about pulleys and probability. Then they went to a room that teaches about lightning. That's when the problem arises when Bobby Bot broke down and they tried to reprogram him. Bobby Bot became crazy and made the T-Rex dance, made the bees "moo" instead of buzzing and a lot more. Sid then came to the rescue by telling jokes so that they can reprogram Bobby Bot before the science museum opens to the public.
What I like about it is that it is very entertaining to my 2 and 4 year old. The movie taught about the basic solar system, dinosaurs (the T-REX) bees and the beehive, lightning, robots, pulleys, probability and Sid's jokes. :) What I like about it is that it is intended for children aged 4 and up. My 4 year old daughter understood the movie well. My 2 year old didn't understand it much but still she had fun watching it. It also taught sportsmanship because in every room, Bobby Bot asks a question and most of the time, the 2 older kid scientist (Yangyang and Nunu) answers the question correctly.
This is a great movie and would definitely be educational to children 4 and up. :)
