Live action DC movies have been miss and hit lately as evident with the likes of Justice League and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just to name a few.

However, DC animated movies have been killing it recently as The Lego Batman Movie impressed audiences and now Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is also just as enjoyable.

While some fans hate Teen Titans Go! the TV show, I still enjoy it and this animated movie retains the show's quirky and humorous style.

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies has a lot of references that poke fun at DC and even Marvel, plus the movie is not afraid to break the 4th wall any chance it gets.

One cameo is so funny I laughed out loud when I saw him on the screen.

I won't spoil it for you here, but I will say this person loves to cameo in a lot of other movies and it was surprising to see him here in a DC film.

Another thing I love about the film is that it isn't afraid to mock other DC properties.

The Green Lantern movie is ridiculed here and there was even a poster in the background for a movie called "Batman v Joker: Yawn of Justice!"

Outside of the humor, the story itself I thought was unique and had twists I did not see coming.

The main villain of the film is Slade (Deathstroke) and he's using lots of methods in order to control the minds of everyone on Earth.

His plan is quite clever and it's not too cliche like in most other superhero movies.

Will Arnett does a great job of playing Slade as does Kirsten Bell who plays an all new character called Jade Wilson.

Before Slade wants to take over the world though, the other main story is about Robin wanting to have a movie of his own.

Anyway, I also like the fact that the Teen Titans themselves are not expert superheroes since all of them (especially Robin) have a lot of flaws, but they manage to overcome all of their obstacles eventually.

One time travel montage made me burst out laughing because the Teen Titans muck up history at one point!

The only thing I did not like about the movie was the amount of songs that were in the film.

I usually hate musicals and I did not like all of the singing that was involved as so many songs are sung throughout the entire film.

Not to mention this film won't be liked by those that already hate Teen Titans Go! because it still has the same humor you either love or hate from the Cartoon Network show.

Overall though, I laughed out loud lots of times while watching Teen Titans Go! To The Movies and I feel many others will also enjoy this movie.

It's enjoyable if you don't like serious superhero movies coming out all of the time.

Verdict: 4/5 stars
