If you love music you will love this film. Robin Williams was excellent as a "pied piper" of lost children" and master panhandler. The romantic story of August's parents meeting, and then losing and re-finding one another was satisfying and sweet. The music in this film was breathtaking and if you never noticed it before, music IS in everything and is everywhere.

This movie is a new "twist" on Oliver Twist. Instead of stealing for the man who feeds them, they perform, musically, for tips. Since this is not an old movie, it can not be called a "classic" but it is of the caliber of the classics. I got it to add to my permanent collection because it was that good. The music is wonderful, the story line endearing. A must have for any personal dvd collection.

Definitely a we watch again and again!
I like the wealth of child empowered movies out in recent years...the "believe in yourself" and "follow your dreams messages" are terrific!
And the music is so awesome we're on the wl for the soundtrack! In the meantime, we can slip in the movie and scene select the music...which my son did for a couple hours tonight, until I sent him to bed.
And the deleted scenes were all great; I wish it had the feature to watch all of them in the movie...they were all valuable bits!
Tha casting was great...can't get enough of this kid...his best movie so far! And the Wizard character was fantastically complex (Robin Williams)...loves music, cares about the kids, but grew up on the street and has a pile of baggage; anger issues, control issues, abuse issues, legal issues; drops all his ethics and forgets the joy of music in the pursuit of $$$$ but ultimately does the right thing (in the deleted scenes).
