Movie Reviews

Disney At Its Best, With The Master's Touch
J Keistler | Lake Jackson, Texas USA | 10/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this movie as a child in the early sixties and never forgot it, even though I never saw it again. I came across it again shopping here and ordered it.What a beautiful, and beautifully made movie! The video quality for VHS was great. This was one of those Disney movies made during their 'golden age' when Mr. Disney was still alive and running his company. It shows. The quality of production, the sets, the luminous quality of the filming, all speak of an integrity and sincerity that are so sadly missing from Eisner's Disney today. I showed this movie to a young child who was unaware that Disney ever made anything this well! She was thinking of the newer, much cheaper movies cranked out by Disney today. As with many of Walt Disney's old movies, this is a film that can be viewed with pleasure by everyone. I didn't find it corny at all. Of course, this movie was set in the 'olden times' so we wouldn't expect to see modern clothing, etc. anyway. This movie is from a time when adults could watch Disney films right along with the children. A beautiful, true story, and a treat for any movie fan."

""Greyfriars Bobby" is undoubtedly the greatest love story of all time, proving once and for all that true love can last for all eternity - beyond this life and into the next. What makes this story all the more remarkable is the fact that it's true, and the central character is a dog that slept every night without fail on the grave of his master for fourteen years! Such devotion should bring tears to the eyes of even the most hard hearted viewers, and it is convincing proof that dogs possess souls, and they also possess the greatest ability of all - the ability to love unconditionally."
Loyalty and the Transformng Power of Love
Becky | 07/08/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Greyfriars Bobby is one of the finest children's movies of all time. Based on a true story, it is a deep-feeling, understated exploration of how a "pound-hound" transformed an entire city. In detail it shows the the mutual transformation of a lonely, impoverished older man and the stray dog who befriends him. They become a fixture in their Scottish neighborhood -- the dog greeting schoolchildren, etc. -- until the old man's death. Scruffy-looking Bobby develops a routine of staying on his dead master's grave each day, still taking the time to greet the kids on their way to and from school. Upon the old dog's death, the people of Greyfriar's built a statue to Bobby, by his master's grave: a testament to loyalty and love. A several handkerchief movie but very uplifting, for adults and kids alike."
An execllent, real life, movie that the family can watch

"I have been to Edinburgh Scotland, the scenes in the film can be easily seen today. The streets and castle are still the same. The story of Bobby is alive and well, if you take a bus tour of the city, the driver will point out the grave and monument of Bobby and his master. This is a good movie for all ages."
