Movie Reviews

Charlie and Lola Comes to DVD
George Buttner | Dayton, Ohio United States | 10/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Charlie and Lola" is a delightful series based on books by Lauren Child. It is seen on Playhouse Disney in the United States and on CBeebies in Great Britain.

In this series, Charlie has a little sister named Lola who is small and very funny. Charlie often helps Lola with her problems and though they have some sibling rivalry at times, they are usually pretty nice with each other. Lola often has an unusual way of seeing things, or can be a bit stubborn, but Charlie helps her to look at things in a new way or to try new things.

This DVD features seven stories from the first season of the show --- "I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato" (based on the first C+L book), "We Do Promise Honestly We Can Look After Your Dog," "I Love Going to Granny and Grandpa's, It's Just That...," "I'm Far Too Extremely Busy, "It's a Secret," "I'm Just Not Keen on Spiders" and "I'm Not Feeling Well."

The animation is unique and fun to look at. The main theme and background music are all very catchy. The British-accented dialogue and phrases also add a lot to the series.

"Charlie and Lola" airs full-screen on Playhouse Disney, but it is presented in widescreen on the DVD. Close-captioning is not offered --- there are subtitles instead. The DVD also includes a few bonuses / surprises --- watch for them to pop up while both on the main and episode-selection menus."
Charming, fun DVD

"We bought this for my 4 year old for Christmas. It has been a distinct hit. As we are Brits living in America I also like the fact that they have kept the same voices that we heard in the UK. It is an adaptation of the books by Lauren Child which have a quirky, gentle sense of humour. I especially like the way that Lola is allowed to use childish constructions of language which I am sure is familiar to all parents of small children. It is also a nice representation of a big brother looking after his smaller sister and finding inventive ways to negotiate tricky problems such as "I don't like tomatoes, peas, carrots etc". I would recommend this product as we are all enjoying it."
Delightful, charming and educational

"My 2 year old loves Charlie and Lola, and so do my husband and I. It's one of the few DVD's the whole family wants to watch over and over. After seeing "I will never ever eat a tomato" my daughter has renamed all the food she previously wouldn't eat, and is happy to eat 'green drops' 'moon squirters' and she actually demanded fish fingers which she had never seen or heard of before and ate them all up (we sneaked her some non-fried fish and told her they were f.fingres, she was none the wiser.) Unlike many kid's shows, the characters speak in convincing voices and they don't shout all the time which is our beef with a lot of US children's programming. Also the animation is charming and the music is fabulous! Only drawback is that our little one has asked us to provide her with a big brother like Charlie, which I don't think we'll be able to do..
Highly recommended. I'm just about to buy vol.2"

"This is one of the children's shows that I love to watch with my daughter. I really like the fact that it is voiced by actual children (rather than the usual voice-over actors), and having the British characters introduces a different culture and manner of speaking to children.

I also really like the fact that it does not use snark or sarcasm to get the point across or to entertain. Don't get me wrong - I love snark and sarcasm, but I'd really like to wait to introduce that to my toddler, you know?

Charlie loves his little sister Lola, and they have a healthy, loving relationship. He has no problem helping to look after her, and the fact that he will go to lengths to cheer her up and make her feel better is excellent to see.

The animation is cute, too. Not too busy, and not headache-inducing. Definitely a thumbs-up for small children...and their parents!"
