Manifest Destiny: The Lewis & Clark Musical Adventure (found on Amazon)

Manifest DestinyAirplanes meets Monty Python meets Studio C meets The Muppets meets music. 

This completely cheesy, yet amazingly CLEAN, musical adventure has no educational value whatsoever, but if you are in the right mood, it is hilarious!

Surprisingly, the actors all have musical talent and the melody’s are rather catchy.

This movie is going on my favorites list, simply for the sheer stupidity of the movie and the enjoyment that it brought to my sisters and I.

The Dangerous Book for Boys (Amazon)

DangerousBookforBoysThe Dangerous Book for Boys is a book (which I haven’t read) and a TV series created by Amazon. The TV series is entertaining and well-acted. I liked the values that the father tries to instill in his sons, particularly the main character Wyatt, who is struggling the most with his father’s passing.

This is an entertaining, light-hearted, family TV series that adults can enjoy with their children. Personally, I think it is clever how the idea for this series was created from a non-fiction, how-to book for boys. It will definitely be joining my list of TV shows to recommend to families or adults who enjoy good, clean, fun.

 

Jumanji (PG)

JumajiThe 2017 film Jumanji is more like a sequel than a remake. And, I think it is clever how they adapted the idea of Jumanji (previously a board game in the 1995 version with Robin Williams) into something that modern teens would use/could relate to (a video game). The film pays tribute to the 1995 version with a small reference to Alan Parish (Robin William’s character in the original), and has more of a back story and more character development than the original.

There was a little bit more profanity than I was expecting in a PG movie, and there is some crude humor. But overall, the movie was entertaining, funny, and enjoyable.
