Movie Reviews

Finally, teaching the values of telling the truth
Beverly L Schueren | Sagamore Hills, Ohio United States | 02/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The world we live in is so full of false hopes and promises that so much of the time people forget to teach their children that being truthful, our word and our honor, is the most important thing we can offer. Children need to learn that telling the truth is a good thing, and not a thing of the past. This Sesame Street video reminds us, as adults, and them as children that although it's not always the easiest road it is always the best choice."
One of the BEST Sesame Street Videos
A Central Illinoisian in Chicago | USA | 03/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My 4 year old has loved this since he was 3 - every few days he will want to watch it again, and I don't mind becuase its charming, and there's some adult "wit" sneaked into the dialogue. The scenario - Telly telling a lie about his Uncle being a Ringmaster of a Circus, Gina telling the Story of the Boy who Cried Wolf, Elmo Dreaming Himself into the Story, & Telly's Uncle unexpectedly appearing (Dennis Quaid) with Telly having to admit he told a lie all combine well. The songs aren't bad either - my Son likes to have me sing along and yes, I've memorized them. Definitely worth buying."
