Yippee!Finally kids like movies that adults like,too!I'd like to give this ten stars.I like all the movies,and the kids think that it doesn't matter that there's no color in movies like Mr. Smith goes to Washington.I think people should read this book A.S.A.P.!

This has been a great time consuming tool for me and my children. Many times I have racked my brain for a GREAT movie to watch with my kids on a Friday night or an appropriete babysitting movie with little success. This has saved time and arguing with my kids. If the book says its okay they can watch it then they can watch it.

Wonderful collection of commentaries and suggestions for selecting videos for those rainy days with the kids. I used a highlighter to mark the movies we should get, but most of the book ended up highlighted!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have guide for your kids ! 24 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a must-must have guide for your kids and you (you can save a lot of time in video store). I am not sure why it took so long for us to have this kind of book. I have three complaints, for which the author should correct in its future edition: (1) The title shouldn't be "Mom's guide". It should be either "Dad's Guide" ( :-) ) or "Parents' Guide". If she doesn't fix it, I am pretty sure that someone will come up with a better book with the title of "Dad's Guide ..."(2) I am not sure whether the author really tested the movies for the age groups. I think that she guess-timated age groups for the movies. I find some of them are not really appropriate. For example, My Fair Lady is rated for kids 6yr or higher. But even my 10yr old daughter, who had great verbal skill in her age group had hard time in understanding the movie and eventually got bored. I hope that authors correct age groups appropriately. (3) "Questions to ask", and "Activities" are
invaluable addition to the book. Unfortunately, these are missing in many movie descriptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book full of constructive suggestions 12 April 1999

Format:Paperback
This book has lots of constructive suggestions and creative ideas. I thought the movie reviews would be childish, but they were actually pretty clever and fun to read.
