Movie Reviews

Middle School Hit!
Jo E. St Clair | Milwaukee, WI United States | 12/31/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"OK...I am bias. The lead, Isaiah was one of my students. I thought for a "first time" movie it was an excellent effort. I have shown the movie to my 8th grade studnets and they got a lot out of it. They could relate to having to make choices and how they can effect you."
Gettin Grown is GREAT!

"This was a great buy! Good for the price, came in on time and it is a movie you can watch with the whole family! It also makes a great gift!"
Heartwarming and thought provoking
Maureen Rosenblum | milwaukee, wisconsin USA | 03/13/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This lovely jewel of a movie provides a heartwarming and thought provoking view of the difficulties of raising a child in an inner city environment. The characters are both believable and memorable and the movie avoids typical gang and drug shock value. Writer/Director Aaron Greer tenderly follows his main character Eric as he learns to make the decisions needed to Get Grown. Although this is a gentle family oriented movie, it never becames sacchrine or Disneyesque. I highly recommend it for it's authenticity and it's uniqueness."
