Meh. Oh, and creepy.

The series is better than this movie. Many of the jokes are immature teen jokes. A little too mature for little kids with crass jokes and the word murder being used in jest. The very end - Robin tells “kids ask your parents where babies come from”. I thought this was odd and creepy and unnecessary. Others may find it funny but I thought it was out of place and had a grooming vibe to it. Meh.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (27 ):
Kids say (68 ):

This animated adventure comedy cleverly pokes fun at superhero movies while also pulling back the curtain on all the standard elements/clichés of superhero movies. The technique teaches kids that there's a formula to making superhero films, which may result in more critical thinking and less impact from some of the darker moments when they watch those films in the future. Warner Brothers and DC Comics should be applauded for being in on the joke, winking at the audience for their own missteps and allowing moneymakers like Batman and Superman to be satirized.

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is an hour and a half of hilarity, with solid jokes aimed at both parents and kids. But when the characters say that their sense of humor is immature, they aren't kidding. Potty humor abounds, with many jokes centered on the rear end and things that come out of it. The musical numbers are as funny as they are snappy. And celebrities from across the spectrum are cast in minor roles; one of the film's delights is the game of trying to identify the voice behind the character. By the time the credits roll to tell you whether you guessed right or wrong, you'll have spent a thoroughly entertaining hour and a half.
