  • Family Movie Night Activity: Race to Witch Mountain

    Jack Bruno (Dwayne Johnson), a cabbie motivated by a big fare, gives two paranormal teenagers a ride to their destination; but instead of just dropping them off he finds out he is in way over his head. Race to the couch for a Family Movie Night that will be out of this world!

    Movie Snacks:

    *The kids are determined to make it to Witch Mountain so why not enjoy some of your favorite “sandwitches” while watching them take their journey.
    *Make green Jell-o or Jell-o jigglers to simulate what we have come to believe Aliens would look like and eat up!
    *Since it may be fun to do a green theme take scoops of green sherbet and pour 7-UP over the top for an Alien Float.

    Must Pause Moments:

    *When retrieving a much sought after object that is from their planet the kids must reach into a squishy ooey-gooey looking plant to get it. Make a big bowl of Jell-o with hidden objects in it; you could put grapes to imitate eyeballs, gummy worms or whatever you would like. Blindfold the finder to make it more difficult and creepy! Before you show them what they have found let them guess. You could also make multiple bowls of the Jell-o and put them behind a box with holes in it where they would reach their hand in to search.
    *At one point in the movie the teens use an instrument to show the galaxy and all the other planets in it. Take turns naming the planet you would be from if you were an alien and what your planet would look like.

    Other Activities:

    *For a play on the Alien theme you could make a simple game of Pin the Eye ball on the Alien.
    *Create a language for your other worldly species, it could be your families secret language.
    *Using any of the following items blocks, popsicles sticks, cardboard, paper, crayons or markers build or draw the BEST spaceship ever and then do a secret family vote and offer a prize for the winning ship!

    Race to Witch Mountain

    When two sibling aliens land on earth with the intent to save it, the bad guys jump out of the wood work. But, those bad guys didn’t factor in that these aliens would enlist the help of a Las Vegas cabbie (Dwayne Johnson) who knows a thing or two about driving and keeping kids safe. Will they make it to Witch Mountain in time to save earth’s future?

    ClearPlay in Action!

    With Medium filters on this one you’re still going to see quite a bit of violence. There’s no gore and no one really gets killed but you’re going to see some pretty good fist fights and lots of guns. Our heroes will have guns pointed at them and will be shot at but the only time anyone gets hit is with a tranquilizer gun. When the aliens are captured they are strapped down and while we won’t see anything it’s clear that the intent is to have them dissected at the cost of their lives. Also within the movie you’ll visit Planet Hollywood during a UFO Convention so you’ll see some strangely dressed people including women in tight fitting midriff tops. It’s not terrible but not great either. Motherly Advice: If you want to watch this one with kids as young as 8, I’d suggest adjusting your filters to Most for violence. It was intense and my kids really liked it but I would have preferred it with Most filters.

    Should You Race to Witch Mountain?...

    This is an action packed kid movie that older kids and adults will enjoy. Of course if you’re not a Dwayne Johnson fan then you’ll hate it, but I kinda like him and I think he does really well with all these kids’ movies. So, if you’re planning a movie night with the family and want to be sure that everyone is sufficiently entertained (both young and old) then this is a sure fire win.
