Finally, a kids film for kids...and me
I just watched this on DVD, and here's my question: why can't there be
more movies like this? I take my kids to Blockbuster every weekend to
find something to watch. First off, there isn't really anything in the
'kids' section. It's either pre-school or teen. Hardly any in the
middle. Why is that? My boys are 7 and 9. Where are the movies for
those kids? There are some, yes, and we've watched them all. Many
times. But it's such a small selection. So i was happy to see something
new on the shelf. My son Tommy said, "Look dad, there's one we haven't
seen!" like he'd just seen a flying saucer. So we took it home and
watched two times over the weekend. My wife and I ended up watching it
with them and loved it. Great, fun, life lessons, adventurous. It had
everything. It inspired the boys the way the Hardy Boys inspired me as
a kid. So I'm taking the time out of my day to make this comment. I
think it's worth it to get the word out, because I know there are a lot
more parents like us. And kudos to Henry Winkler and William Baldwin
for raising the bar..
Plumm Summer is nice !
My, oh my, never am I so pleasantly surprised to watch this movie! The
title is unassuming, and because there is lack of publicity about this
movie in my country (it wasn't shown in the local cinemas), I thought
this is one of those straight to DVDs which usually meant that the
movie is not good.
My, oh my, this movie rocks! Based on true story, the Elliot brothers
helped the FBI to capture the person who did the frognapping. Funny
moments ensued as the brothers, and the inefficient FBIs worked their
way to nab the suspect.
Both the Elliot brothers, and the girl who plays as the new girl in
town are very real. They have the chemistry that one might think that
they are already in the industry for a long time.
The performance of Elliot and her small brother are wonderful, they
quarrel and made remarks with each other, but when others disturbed one
of them, the other stand up and defended.
This movie is for everyone, young and old. It has tonnes of moral
values and it is has that feel-good factor that many films churned out
of Hollywood seems to lack.
In a nutshell, I recommend this movie anytime. Just sit back, relax,
and have some chips with it..
