Americano available now on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand from Lionsgate
Lionsgate sent my family a copy of Americano to review. We always welcome family approved movies in our home even as our boys are getting older. You never know when you are going to have a gathering and have a mixed age group so this is a no brainer to put on!
Cuco is a Mexican boy parrot that would rather imitate the crazy stunts of his TV parrot superhero, El Americano, than help with his chores at the family bird circus. Yet when a gang of bully birds threatens his ringmaster father and takes over the circus, Cuco sets off on a hilarious and perilous journey to Hollywood to enlist his hero in his fight, only to discover the true hero within himself.
Take a look:
I’m a sucker for a film that carries the lesson that you are your own hero. Throughout this colorful adventure we learn about courage and about how being yourself will take you far. I know that theme has been played before, but when it comes to kids I don’t think you can stress it enough. These characters are funny, loving and you cheer for them throughout the film. While my boys are a bit old for this film they both said it was cute and thought littles would love it! This is a fun family film that’s great for the Summer!
