Another Great Holly Hobbie Movie!

"Holly Hobbie does it again! I am glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews from some other buyers. Yes some of the voices have changed, but they are not that noticable. My 5 year old didn't really mind. Holly Hobbie is still a GREAT role model. She moves to Clover and attends a new school. She befriends an unpopular girl, despite the riddicule she receives from the other kids. Even her closet friends are concerned a bit, which is great b/c it shows the incredible strength of character Holly Hobbie possesses. Her friends, Carrie and Amy soon realize the error of their ways and all 4 girls become good friends. The music is great, very thoughtful and uplighting, confidence building lyrics. The movie does introduce some "naughty mean girls (with some borderline acceptable attire), but this is real life, unfortunately. Our little girls will encounter such individuals. Let them see how Holly Hobbie stays true to herself, dresses age-appropriately, and is the best friend anyone could have. Great lessons learned in this movie, ones that I certainly want my little one to learn BEFORE she reaches elementary school."
Dissapointed in the new Holly Hobbie

"I am a huge Holly Hobbie fan. I loved the first 4 movies that came out. The characters were sweet and unique. The stories were different then the usual stuff you see out there and the voices were real sounding! Like the people in our own lives. The relationships between the youth and elderly were inspiring and heart warming. They had tradition, country living and old-fashioned charm with a modern twist. My daughter and I loved having girl time watching them together. I really loved them.
However, the two latest movies, Fabulous Fashion Show and Marvelous Makeover are a big disappointment. The voices are dreadful sounding. Making Robbie sound like a smoker, Holly, Carrie and Amy sound annoying and fake and KT sounds like someone trying to sound like they have a really bad cold. The stories are okay but they have lost their tradition and charm. They are now like everything else you see out there. Removing most of the older characters and the charm they brought to the show as well as removing the value of what someone with years behind them would offer. My daughter watched the new movie and asked what happened to Holly? She noticed right away that she sounded and looked different. She is disappointed as well. I'm sorry to see that this has happened to a really great series of movies and that the makers have chosen to go this route. I will not be purchasing these new movies if they continue like this."
