Just What I Needed
4 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was perfect to show to my "tweens" Sunday school class. It isn't always easy finding real life movies where teenagers talk about church and faith. Don't get me wrong, Veggie Tales are great for younger kids and even fun for teens once in a while. As a Sunday School teacher, though, I like to show movies that show people talking about faith and not just shows with asparagus talking about God (sorry Junior!) No, it isn't a high budget production but it does get the spiritual message across. The class loved the dancing and singing and, even though the acting won't win any Oscars anytime soon, they didn't seem to notice or care. They just tapped and snapped along with the music.

The film does itself a huge disservice with the title and the box cover picture that they chose. They opened themselves up to an automatic comparison to a high budget "tween" classic. Unfortunately, in that comparison, "Sunday School Musical" will not fare well. Standing on its own, however, it is a fun, meaningful movie with a good message: by believing and working together good things can happen.

I guess it all depends what you were expecting. For me, this film was just what I needed.
