Lots of fun!
8 September 2013 | by mgrif426See all my reviews

We had guests over the night this aired and everyone enjoyed this movie- from adults with no children, parents of tweens and teenagers, grandparents, and kids (both boys and girls) from 11-16. It is a fun and family-friendly musical that has a lot to offer. The 'message' is positive, the humor witty, the songs catchy, and characters well cast. From the actors to the music to the props and set design, overall this was a success! As a parent, I don't think there are any hidden meanings or issues that need to psycho-analyzed, just a lot of musical fun and adventure to be simply enjoyed. I think the fans of the book series will be thrilled- and eager for a second installment!
