Dreamy, sentimental, sweet, and soothing film fare.
1 August 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Sandy Bottom is a picture postcard perfect little midwestern town where everyone is perfect right down to their imperfections which, if course, being perfect, they always apologize for having in the most perfect way. "The Sandy Bottom Orchestra" is a dreamy, sweet, sentimental little made-for-tv film about a family of three who infuse the population of Sandy Bottom with a dash of culture by creating a classical orchestra...etc., etc. An excellent little unpretentious "feel good" flick, "TSBO" does what is sets out to do and quits...in a perfect sort of way. Enjoyable stuff for anyone in need of a break from the usual frenetic film fare.
