One of my musical favorites...
24 August 2004 | by (St. Louis, Mo) – See all my reviews

As somebody who grew up watching this movie, knows practically every song and can pretty much act out the entire script, this might be a bit biased, but please bear with me. The movie is about family above all. A brother promises his sister before he is born that he will make sure that she is born into their to-be large family. But when he's born, the veil is pulled over his mind and he forgets. The movie follows many subplots involving the other kids in the family as well as the parents and some of the kids' friends. But the main focus is on the older brother as he strays from the beliefs of his family and how he finds his way in life. True, the movie plays out like a community theatre project, but that doesn't make the film any less than any high-budget blockbusters out there.

It's a good family movie, and has many opportunities for children to ask their parents about some of the topics involved: religious beliefs, family problems that the characters are faced with, peer pressure, and romantic relationships, to name a few. You may love it (like me), you might hate it, you may or may not agree with everything, but at least give it a try.
