My turn: Kid’s film, junk food make perfect pair

I had a childhood flashback Tuesday night when I watched Rock-a-Doodle with coworker Christina Calloway.

We were both having one of those moments of reverting back to childhood when you decide you must eat junk food and watch animated children’s movies. It’s a girl thing.

The film is from the early 1990s and is about a little boy named Edmund, who ends up getting turned into a kitten and going on an adventure to find Chanticleer, the rooster who can return the sunshine to his darkened, gloomy farm.

Despite the movie having certain cheesy aspects to it (as many children’s films do), it is funny and heart-warming and you fall in love with the many endearing characters, including the nephew of the very evil owl trying to stop Edmund from completing his mission.

I highly recommend the film to families everywhere because I think parents would get a kick out of its cuteness as much as children will and the nice part is it’s available on Netflix.

I could probably also highly recommend it to a college student I know that watches a lot of Disney and other animated films. You know who you are. Rent it and watch it. You’ll love it.
