Movie Review
« on: September 21, 2019, 08:50:32 PM »
So, occasionally we want to watch a movie as family, but it's hard to find anything worth watching for our kids' age range: 2-14.  I found Going My Way recommended from a Google search, but even from the reviews I couldn't tell if it would be good or not.  Anyone seen it?  Thumbs up or down?  Any other recommendations?

Going My Way with Bing Crosby?  It is definitely family friendly.  There is a bit of adultness with a man paying for a woman's apartment, but of course this is a Code movie we're talking about!  It gets resolved in the end.  If you're ready for sugary sap, it is a fine movie.

This movie? Fantastic, but not for little ones. Definitely for boys over 13; girls prolly be bored.

No, it was the movie Jacob is talking about.  So far, my oldest boy is only 12, then I've got 2 more who are 8 and 5.  So, we've got a few more years to go before we check this one out.  But, you are right....the girls would probably be bored ;).

My wife watched and enjoyed it, except for crying at the end...
