Turbo (DreamWorks) – Movie Review
This movie is about a garden of snails who live outside of a small house. One snail in particular, Theo, likes to watch car races on the small TV in the garage where he spends most of his free time. Theo has a brother, Chet, who is always watching out for him and annoyed about his brother’s race car obsession, constantly trying to change his perspective on life.
In a strange and unusual series of events, Theo gets doused in fluids from a racing car that he coincidentally ends up on for a brief moment, causing him to now have the speed he desires.
Eventually, Theo and Chet end up with a Mexican man (who runs a taco business with his brother) who happens to collect snails and make them race. It’s discovered how fast Theo is, and he insists now on being called Turbo. Another series of events leads him to entering the Indianapolis 500, a race car contest, where he’s on the track with dozens of blazing speed race cars.
It’s a cute, interesting movie. My child likes it. One thing that I don’t personally care for though is the frequent use of rap music. I don’t think movies should be “trendy” in that way. But anyway, I think it’s a movie worth sharing with your kids.
