Famly friendly
1 November 2015 | by bullwinklejm-19680See all my reviews

I find myelf constantly trying to find something to watch as a family - It's always a tough choice between some lame Japanimation and a live-action movie for older audiences, the kind I have to make my own BLEEP sounds to cover up the gratuitous bad language. This is a movie you can all watch. The story is about overcoming adversity, difficulty of fitting in and bullying... themes that can be relevant to your kids and can be a good conversation starter.

Do you like movies like "My Dog Skip" and "A Christmas Story"? Do you miss the days when you could turn on the TV on Sunday evening and have (a pre-Snake Plisken) Kurt Russell entertain everyone? Then this could be for you.

Sure, it's no "Citizen Kane", but the story line moves along well enough to keep you interested and your kids entertained. The only disturbing moment is the scene where Travis has to put down a rabies infected-foaming-at-the-mouth Marshall before he rips anyone's throat out... (oh wait, that was "Old Yeller" - nevermind).

Some really decent acting by kids (which is always a pleasant surprise) and we really liked the performance of Bill Chott as "Gary". He played the well-meaning-but-grumpy-enabler-husband to a seemingly-always-drunk-animal-hoarding wife "Susan", played convincingly (as if she was totally hammered in real life) by Lauren Holly.

TLDR; If your kids too young for Bruce Campbell movies and you can't sit through another showing of "Frozen" check out "Marshall's Miracle". It really is a good family friendly movie.
