Childs Play Communications sent the above three movies for my family to enjoy, well we are going to have quite a few family movie nights that is for sure. So we started watching the movies right away.

My Friend Bernard

My daughter wanted to see My Friend Bernard, first, well I agreed with her, the movie looked cute, so we popped some popcorn and we watched the snow adventure of a little boy named Sam. Sam reminded me a bit of my daughter, who can be painfully shy and is now afraid of everything (try to get her to go on rides, and things she would do when she was 2 no, she is too scared) so of course my daughter could relate with Sam.  I loved the cute friendships that were formed in the movie, and my daughter just loved the story. She liked it so much, she asked to watch it again. So this was a big hit.

I Heart Shakey  - Well I am a big fan of Steve Guttenberg, just always have been ever since those Police Academy days I just think he is a good actor. With I heart Shakey, this movie was cute, and I loved the dog in the movie and the little boy was such a good actor I am sure he has a nice career ahead of him. So will they be able to keep the dog, or will he have to go? Well I am not going to soil it, you will have to watch the movie yourself.

Rock Stars  - this was a cute movie. I loved the cute little earth worms, and when they did the village people thing I lost it, that was so very funny! Rock Stars was my favorite of the films.  I can see why this was nominated for the Robert Award for Best children/Family Film of 2012. And I love Jane Lynch, her voice lends itself to a cool cartoon character.
