“What’s your family’s favorite movie?” my friend Melanie asked me.
She was working on a post about great family-friendly movies to watch over the summer. Would I choose a movie and write a review for her to share with her readers?”
Of course, I would!
Cue the popcorn-scented memories of boys in pajamas, four abreast on the beat-up family room couch! So many musicals, corny Disney humor, gun fights, car chases, and light saber duels to chose from.
I finally had to poll the boys, “Hey, what’s our favorite movie of all time?”
They chose the zany and heartwarming Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a 1968 musical adventure starring Dick van Dyke and featuring the writing talents of Ian Fleming (the book) and Roald Dahl (the screen play).
This is Week 2 of the series. Head on over to Melanie Redd’s place to see what we like about the movie we chose and why it was our favorite.
Each Wednesday morning this summer, Melanie will add a new review for you to enjoy. You and your family can gain a whole slew of great movie suggestions from reading these weekly reviews. We hope these articles will lead to a fun summer of movie watching for you and your crew.
My friend, Dawn Klinge, reviewed Pete’s Dragon last week, and there are more movie reviews on the way.
