Excellent Family Movie

"While this movie may not be the same as Disney's classic "Song Of The
South", this direct-to-video film is a beautifully animated, clean,
wholesome, entertaining family film. This movie is filled with very
memorable characters, plenty of adventure, a lot of captivating
stories, great moral lessons, and superb animation. This film also has
a lot of clean humor without any of the sexual innuendo, lame puns, or
gross-out humor that's found in many animated T.V. shows and films
nowadays. Even though this film is aimed at small children, you can
enjoy this movie whether you're 4 or 40, and it's great for the whole
family to watch together (or by yourself). On a scale of 1 to 10, I
give this film a 10 all the way! You will not be disappointed."
This is a rip off don't buy it!

"I was introduced to Brer Rabbit via Uncle Remus' stories in Song of the South. This DVD does not remotely come close to the stories told by the lovable Uncle Remus. They are watered down political correct inaccurate bla bla mindless pap. Uncle Remus' original stories had substance and wisdom I didn't find in this DVD."

"I loved the story of Brer Rabbit and the Briar Patch when I was a kid. (I had the...(gulp)...album of the story...boy am I old!!) It's great to be able to share these stories with my kids. It's not perfect, but it is enjoyable. Upon repeated viewing, a few things started irritating me, especially considering that my very young children are watching: the party episode, where the song playing in the background says over and over (and over) "Work that body, work, work that body..." The siblings in the skit at the beginning are also pretty rude to each other. This is a movie that doesn't feature cute and cuddly wilderness critters hopping along in friendship...these guys are constantly trying to eat each other. I'm glad we rented it, and we all definitely enjoyed it, but we won't be buying it."
