Every once in a while we like to have dinner and a movie and then review the movie.

Tonight was Soft Tacos and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad.  We’ve seen it before (and N8 doesn’t like the Sleepy Hollow part so he skipped it) but we haven’t reviewed it before.  Since it’s October, we thought it was a fitting movie for our first review on the blog.

To be honest, I’m (PBJ) with N8 a bit on this one…even if it’s a cartoon, the headless horseman keeps me looking over my shoulder in the dark at places like Wildwood and the drive to Lopez Canyon just like Jaws messed me up with sharks.  And no, it doesn’t matter that it’s a cartoon, especially since this is about as scary of a movie as the Barrsonage ever watches.  Doesn’t stop me from enjoying the show, however, nor does it keep from debating whether Ichabod made it or not.

Our thoughts (first Mr Toad, then Ichabod including whether you think he made it or not, and finally the number of stars)…we always mention something we like and then rate it with 1, 2 or 3 stars with a family total at the bottom.

PBJ – I like Toad’s friends, especially Moley, who faithfully look after him.  Ichabod’s proportions are absurdly amazing…lanky except for the world’s biggest Adam’s apple.  Bing Crosby is always fun to hear.  Definitely 3 stars.

Tif – It was interesting that the author made the aristocrat a toad.  Bing Crosby is a crooner that makes me melt like butter (PBJ comment – uh oh).  Ichabod makes it and marries the rich widow.  3 stars.

N8 – Mr Toad was funny, especially the train chase.  Ichabod is the worst movie ever because it scares me.  I think Ichabod dies.  3 stars for Toad but a 1 star reduction for Ichabod = 2 stars.

Zac – I liked the fight in Toad Hall.  The headless horseman chase is my favorite part of the Ichabod story.  Ichabod makes it because it only glazed his hat like in dodgeball and it ricocheted off before exploding while he rode away. 3 stars.

KT – I liked the court scene in Mr Toad.  I liked all of Ichabod except the headless horseman chase.  I know Ichabod doesn’t die.  3 stars.

Guess we’re split regarding Ichabod’s survival/death.  What do you think?

The Barrsonage Review = 14 stars (out of 15)
