Studies have shown that laughter reduces pain, decreases stress-related hormones and boosts the immune system. Humor Therapy was used by doctors as early as the 13th century. In the wee hours of the morning during night shifts across the country, doctors keep watch. When patients are safely tucked in, and brushing up on medical literature in the middle of the night becomes impossibly sedating, we fire up DVDs for a dose of our own humor therapy. Recently the choice was Zootopia. (Yes, we like to nurture our inner child) Punning on stereotypes and Manhattan’s big city quirks, Zootopia takes politically correct to a whole new level. With solid graphics, adorable characters, and kid friendly but amusing humor, Disney nailed it with this movie. If you need a laugh, we highly recommend this one. The sloth scene had us cracking up like a bunch of 6th graders. #Best.Movie.Ever.
