Movie Reviews

A delight to eye and ear for children of all ages!

"This movie has just been released (December 2005) and is based on the children's book by the same name by Carl R Sams II and his wife, Jean Stoick. Lost in the Woods, the book, was the winner of the 2005 Best Children's Picture Book Awards - Independent Publishers & USA Book News and the 2005 Director's Choice Award - Early Childhood NEWS. As I stated in my review of the book on January 3, three generations of my family members watched the movie after receiving it as a Christmas gift (already had the book), and all enjoyed it thoroughly. If you have any child left in you as an adult, you will smile and laugh along with the children.

The storyline has to do with the arrival of spring and new life in a woodland and its surrounding meadow. Leaves on the trees suddenly burst forth in refreshing greens, flowers bloom, and animal babies arrive, each wondering when will be their time to roam or fly freely about the world into which they were born. Several of the young wonder about a newborn fawn that appears to have been left alone by its mother, not understanding, of course, that there's a very good reason for this. The fawn believes Mother will return, as she certainly does. The story is told by Shirley the box turtle to Fernando Hernadofandavez, a most comical young raccoon who is looking for his brother, Hernando. He's a stitch!

The movie, as much and maybe more than the book because of the voices and the sounds, is a true learning experience for young children. They learn about animal young and their respective environments, the sounds they make, and how they learn what they were born to do and when the right time comes for them to do it. (We got a kick out of the tadpole who wanted to become a standup comic, but had yet to grow the legs he needed to stand on (chuckle).)Also on the DVD is a sound identification game to be played after viewing the movie and a segment on the making of the film.

There are many enchanting moments in this film written, produced, and directed by the very talented team of Robert and Laura Sams, brother and sister and cousins of photographer Carl Sams. What a family!

Beautiful, funny, touching -- highly recommended!

"We stumbled upon this film one day on PBS and "Tivo-ed" it in case our 16 month old (at the time) son liked it. I could not be happier that we did! My son absolutely LOVES this film! He either stands tranfixed or chatters to the animals on the screen or turns to us smiling or laughing to confirm how great it is! We are working on learning all the types of animals featured and he is trying to say them all. He also dances/bounces/sways to the songs. The photography is unbelievably gorgeous, the script is very funny and deals with important, positive themes of growing up. My husband and I genuinely enjoy watching it with him and singing along to the catchy tunes. I've often caught myself singing them outside of the home, or at work. My favorite character is Fernando, the racoon who is searching for his lost brother. The actor who provides his voice is hilarious, with great timing and inflection. The Sams family (the creators of the film) are tremendously talented and even though I already have it Tivo-ed, I will still buy the DVD so we can own it forever and take it to Grandmas, etc. Best film we've found for him so far."
Loved by Children and Adults Alike!

"This "movie" is about 40 minutes long. As the previous reviewer stated, it is fun for the whole family. My 2 daughters (ages 2 and 4) absolutely love it - AND it holds their attention (I give it 6 stars for that alone)! My husband and I also enjoy it. It is one of those shows that has easy childish humor as well as the subtle adult humor. Worth the price and one of those shows I won't mind watching another hundred times with my girls."
Great for all ages!

"You will love this movie and the book no matter how old you are. From babies who are captivated by all the animals to adults who appreciate all of the hidden humor! Makes a great gift for those who have everything."
