“Tad: The Lost Explorer” Review and Blu-Ray DVD Combo Pack Giveaway

I had the chance to review the movie Tad: The Lost Explorer and my whole family enjoyed it.  I love Ariel Winter from Modern Family and I love Cheech Marin from everything he has done and they provide voices in this fun family movie.  My 3 year old daughter loved Tad: The Lost Explorer and has watched it 5+ times now just this week.


The movie is about Tad who dreams of something bigger.  He has a normal job, but is mistaken as someone else and pretends to be an archeologist.  He goes on a journey to help Professor Lavrof and his daughter Sara to find and protect treasure from thieves.  It is fun, fast paced and provides laughter too.

Take a look at the trailer for a peak into Tad: The Lost Explorer.

One Direction, the amazingly popular boy band, provides some great music for this movie.  The music in this film is fun and catchy.  The DVD is currently what my 3 year old is watching on repeat in my car and I don’t mind at all.

Tad: The Lost Explorer is available on Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Single-Disc DVD and Digitally everywhere October 8th.

    At the start this seems like a fun movie with lots of action. I was not able to finish the film, one of the biggest distraction was Sara herself. Instead of developing her charactor her movie greater focus was her body. Much in the feature she is presented in short shorts and tank top revealing cleavage, a perfect figure of male sexism fanasty.
    Nonetheless the story at times got rather silly and corny, even for a lively animation film. The mummies was an obvious thrown in, not very inventive. Yet parents may be concern about impression Sara would have on their young children, it did bother me as an adult. It is your choice if you chose this as entertainment.

    I agree with Curtis. The movie started out entertaining enough for my 7-yr-old son, but I soon wondered what the message was — meaning, are you trying to make my son feel a certain way about Sara’s body?? There were film shots of the male protagonist speaking that, clearly, did not need ONLY Sara’s tank-top-covered breasts (just her jutting chest, not her whole body) on the side of the shot to move the story along, and there was absolutely no need to portray Sara in short shorts and a cleavage-baring tank top, unless you’re also telling young girls that this is the way to get a male’s attention. Very disappointed in that aspect, and I consider myself pretty progressive!
