Movie Reviews

Not for kids or educational use!
Spanish Teacher and Mommy | St. Louis MO | 03/19/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I had hoped to use this in my (Spanish) classroom, to replace an old PBS Going Places VHS. However, it has several things in it that are inappropriate for school-aged children (I'd put it at about PG-13) and I certainly can't use it in a middle-school classroom! Scenes about ancient sex toys are pretty much unnecessary in any travel video; then to find that the exhibit was traveling and not even a permanent fixture in the town just made me more upset! I do love the adventurousness of this series; but sometimes things go a bit over the edge (there's an emphasis on drinking and partying, and some of the ways the two women sleep are simply unsafe for women traveling alone!) This is a very informative video for the average adult traveler. I simply can't use it in the classroom."
Not your Average Travel Video
Jackie Foster | Scottsdale, AZ USA | 08/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Globe Trekker is an acquired taste! But for those of us who have acquired it - oh, baby!!! This is not your typical travel video. You won't be shown the top sights in a spot and then have specific hotels or eating establishments pushed on you. This is a funny, zany look at travel through the eyes of various people who feel like friends by the end of the shows. This shows you see the underbelly of Spain. The culture. The people. Use it to supplement that Rick Steves video (which are always first rate) and the guidebooks you will buy. Don't expect it all, just expect fun!"
Not a typical Globe trekker!

"Although most of these videos are very fun, accurate, and educational to some extent, this Spain episode is not very good. The Northern section is fine and interesting but then in the Southern section there are strange sexual references on a few occasions making it impossible to show in a classroom. Having lived in Spain, it seems to overly stress stereotypes of what the people and places are like and doesn't do the culture justice."
Inappropriate DVD for classroom use

"This video has a short segment that is inappropriate for middle school and younger. I will not order Globe trekker for my classroom again. Some type of rating should've been on the box. Thank goodness I previewed the DVD. I'm not sure it is even appropriate for the high school Spanish classes."
