"If your kids like Blue's Clues, they will love this movie. The story is set around a musical that Blue will perform in. There are many good musical numbers throughout, including one with the voice of Ray Charles. Although this is titled as a movie, its really just a jazzed up longer version of the tv show with much better music and a longer storyline. As I mentioned above, if your kids like Blue's Clues, this is definitely worth buying for them.The DVD itself is okay, but since the home video cassettes for Blue's Clues are so inexpensive, I'm not sure this is a must have DVD if this is also available on video. The picture is full frame, the sound is dolby stereo but not 5.1. There are a few extras on the DVD such as music videos that are cute for the kids also."
Very funny and a little sad

"My 17 month-old loves Blue, and he loves catchy music, so this movie really captures his interest. As a parent, I am glad we bought this movie because it is more sophisticated and less hokey than a lot of children's programs (i.e., Teletubbies and Barney) and so easier to watch over and over again, but it is still on a level that my young son can enjoy. The score is very well written, and the plot is interesting and funny (for adults, at least; my son couldn't care less about the plot, he just likes the music and Blue's very expressive ears). The one and only issue I have with this movie is that the plot includes several rather sad turns of events. At some point, everyone seems to be disappointed about something, or have their feelings hurt, or be party to a misunderstanding. Of course, that just makes it that much happier when everything works out in the end. And, for older kids, seeing Blue and Side Table Drawer and Periwinkle unhappy may teach empathy for others, and provide motivation to interact with the movie to try to help solve the problems."
It's BIG, it's BLUE, it's MUSICAL!

"Blue's Big Musical Movie is a huge hit in our home. Although my 6 year old is too old for it, she enjoyed Blue's Big Musical Movie quite a bit, and can still enjoy the soundtrack. My four year old thinks it?s the greatest thing ever put on tape (or DVD!). If all that weren?t enough, our 2-year-old neighbor loves it too.Blue's Big Musical Movie is not just a long version of the TV show. It does incorporate all the familiar elements of Blue's Clues ? the clues, the characters - but it elevates these things to the next level. The creators take advantage of the longer format by fleshing out the activities, and by playing out several plots simultaneously: Periwinkle's magic show, Sidetable's wish to sing, Steve's getting everything in order for the show.Blue's Big Musical Movie features some great songs, with catchy tunes and clever lyrics. Although this is a review of the DVD, I feel obliged to mention that the soundtrack to Blue's Big Musical Movie is one that our whole family enjoys.There are nifty bonuses like a lesson about music featuring Ray Charles - and yes, it was very helpful in teaching my kids about notes, rhythm, and tempo. So much product aimed at kids is either entertaining or educational, and rarely both. Blue's Big Musical Movie manages to be both. Big kudos to the people behind this exceptionally good kids movie, and to Steve who is so excellent in his role."
Laughier and Loonier than the TV episodes

"This movie is a full-length production, basically remaining true to the TV show, but in an expanded format. The plot centers around the Blue's Clues cast prepare a musical production. In many ways this adaptation of TV show also follows the rhythm of a 'real' musical. The score is quite diverse in musical style, with lots of choruses with the whole cast joining in. Even my infant daughter joined in her sister's delight over this one (which she doesn't share on the 'regular' TV show episodes). There is a great segment on composing and reading musical notes including rhythm, tone, etc. I rather expected my 4 y. o. daughter to start fidgeting during this part, but she was transfixed and understood the basic concepts right away. Whatever Steve & Blue's appeal is to toddlers & pre-schoolers - maybe just the pure silliness - it is upped exponentially in this movie. From Mom's perspective it has tremendous educational and entertainment appeal - true to and leveraging the basics of the TV episodes. A definite MUST HAVE for Blues' fans!"
