I would’ve never given this film or its trailer a moment of my time prior to the birth of my daughter. After witnessing the insanity of the Tickle Me Elmo craze, I had nothing but negative feelings for the stupid orange puppet. But now that I’ve seen him in action, I love the little guy. I want to be his friend. He makes me wish that I could live on Sesame Street.

There’s something so innocent and kind and joyous about Elmo that I am forced to stop and watch every time he is on the screen.

I can’t wait to see this film.
