Dora over the top

I saw an ad for the new Dora the Explorer movie, "Dora Saves the Snow Princess," and while I like Dora as much as the next preschool mom, it was a bit over the top.
Cue dramatic, action/adventure music, which is what caught my attention in the first place.
Every Dora story has some "crisis," which leads to her adventure--always successful, and the "We Did It" song and dance at the end.
But the announcer scaring us with his dramatic voice, saying Dora is in danger from the mean witch who threatens to melt the snowy forest FOREVER, and asking if Dora can get there in time to save the Snow Princess? A bit much. Everyone knows she's going to save her. This is Dora, not Shakespeare.

Of course I'm going to record the dumb thing on Tuesday. Drama is right up our alley around here.
