Movie Reviews

A universally wonderful film
Dudley S. Marshall | Dorchester, SC United States | 04/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the true signs of great storytelling is if you can connect with different people on different levels. This movie does just that. The humor is universal, and there is plenty here for both children and adults. I loved this movie, and actually sent it to a friend of mine as a wedding present. They loved it as well.
Lloyd looks at the life of a upbeat geeky kid and his attempt to win the girl of his dreams, and just try and fit in. I think everybody who has ever been 11, or will ever be 11, can relate to this story. I know it brought back memories of my own childhood and my first crush. It shows kids that there are obstacles that you have to face growing up, and it shows Lloyd facing and overcoming them. It's a good life lesson, and one of the few films that parents can and will want to watch with their children. It doesn't get burdened down with overly complex characters, and that is part of its charm. You never hear kids say that their teacher is "Stern but fair." Nope. They say that the teacher is just mean.
I think one thing that most children's programs miss today is that they don't have to make everything so sterile for the children that parents will hate to watch it. Watch an old Muppets rerun and you'll know what I mean. The Muppets were entertaining to all ages because they were just funny. Like old Warner Brothers cartoons. They were just funny. There wasn't a focus group targeting them specifically for one demographic. They just made them funny, and everybody loved them. Just like Lloyd.
Hands down: It's a great movie."

"A pastor friend of mine in California recommended that I purchase a copy of Lloyd for my pre-teen grandchildren. I was able to find it on After reading other reviews on Amazon, I nearly decided not to purchase it.I reviewed the movie before allowing my grandchildren to see it. The only vulgar language that I heard was the word "fart" that was used twice.So far, my pre-teen grandchildren have watched Lloyd three times. They love it! This film is very unique in that it addresses all of the issues that pre-teens have. It helps them through these very difficult issues in ways that they can easily identify with."
Give this film a chance!

"I have seen this fim several times and was quite shocked by Lynn Gibson's negative review.
The quality of the film speaks for itself. But only if it is seen..... The unanimous approval of the customer reviews attest to this fact. It is most unfortunate that potential buyers are first presented with with the "official" reviewers dismissal of this fine film. How many never bother to follow the links to the other reviews?In responce to the reviewers comments, I have many things to say.... but I will only quote from the book "Saturday Morning Censors: TV Regulations before the V-Chip" by Heather Hendershot"Debates around children's entertainment inevitably reveal what adults need or desire for themselves and of children." With this in mind, I encourage people to re-read the reviewers comments and come to their own conclusions."
Most unappreciated film ever made!

"I love this movie. My mom loves this movie. Everyone I know loves this movie. We've watched it repeatedly and never tire of it. It's chock full of everything that a real adolescent experiences on a daily basis. And to top it all off, it's downright hilarious. Todd Bosley is by far one of the brightest young actors I have ever seen, and I hope his career continues to flourish."
