Disney's Phineas and Ferb: Across The 2nd Dimension Pajama Party

Last night we had 10 moms and one dad over and 12 kids to enjoy the Disney's Phineas and Ferb First Movie called Across The 2nd Dimension!

This night has been the talk of the neighborhood since the kids and I struggled with our friend list over a month and a half ago. We narrowed it down to 18 families (if everyone had come we would have had well over 40+ kids here. As fun as this sounds we knew some of course wouldn't be able to attend. 13 families said yes and 11 showed up wearing their PJ's and carrying their sleeping bags and/or pillows.

Parents who are usually late ended up arriving 40 minutes early because they had been listening to their kids talk about it from the moment they woke up. My kids too! They woke up so excited that the living room was set up by 10:30 a.m.

We watched 1 half hour Phineas and Ferb show on Netflix and at 8:00 p.m turned on The Disney Channel.
When the movie started you could have heard a pin drop from the living room while the dining room chock full of moms who hadn't seen each other for a month caught up loudly!  It was funny to hear the kids complaining about the noise from the moms!

We had no idea what to expect from Phineas and Ferb's movie Across the 2nd Dimension but know this: We would undoubtedly love it. 

Here What I Can Now Tell You: I SERIOUSLY NEED to see this movie again. What I was able to concentrate on and hear (noise level and hosting aside). The movie was funny. I sat next to my niece and she and I shared quite a few laughs in the first 15 minutes.

The boys help Dr. Doofenshmirtz (who they have no idea is evil) get his cross dimensional portal to work. Eventually they all end up in an alternative dimension.  They also learn in a funny way that Perry is...da da dah...Agent P! Ha! One of my favorite scenes. We also get to see how they boys first get Perry. Who doesn't lost Perry.

One of the things that the creators of Phineas and Ferb do wonderfully is make this an enjoyable show for kids and parents alike. It is a show you can and will want to watch with your kids. There was many surprises, many fun musical numbers, lots of action and movie/TV references to make parents laugh.  So many jokes that go over the kids head but cracked me and the other parents up so much so that the kids asked us a few times, "whatcha laughing at?"

It was a good time, so much so that we are getting ready to watch it again right now in a more quieter setting.

If you have never watched it now is the time. This was way better than an movie created from a series. the movie stands on it's own. We loved the ending when the boys had to make a decision to forget knowing that Perry is in fact a secret agent. It solidifies the continuation of the boys ignorance on their pet and their statement, "he's a platypus, he doesn't do much!"

Got to go...time to watch.
