Holiday Gift Guide Day 14: Bringing Up Bobby DVD Review and Giveaway

About The Movie:

When it comes to whipping up a somewhat-edible dinner or passing along faith-focused advice, James Wyler has plenty of experience.

For a dozen years, James has been both big brother and surrogate parent to his siblings. Trusting God to lead his path, James has done his best to honor his deceased parents as he's raised his two brothers and a sister.
Now, as youngest brother Bobby is about to turn 16, everyone returns to the family home to celebrate at a waterslide park—and to finally hear the reading of their parents' will.

Sister Andrea is hoping for the largest share of the pie to maintain her lavish lifestyle. Brother Dennis—make that The Dennis—needs some quick cash to keep the anarchists at bay. (Don't ask ...)

Then there's Bobby. He just wants to figure out what Liz, the new girl in school, likes so that he can impress her. As The Dennis says, Bobby's dealing with "a little bit of the teenage angst."

Add in a hidden stash of cash, an attractive lawyer, a friend dealing with issues at home, and The War Table—where topics of vital importance (or not!) are discussed—and you have a different family kind of comedy. Verydifferent.

Bringing Up Bobby is a quirky story of family, identity, and faith that isn't afraid to show that life can get muddled. And when it does, there usually aren't easy answers to all of the questions.

So grab a plate of tuna casserole and find out if Bobby will discover what Liz is looking for in a guy. And more importantly, will he ever be able to figure out who he is?

Will Andrea get enough stuff? Will James ever have a date?

And will The Dennis be able to stay one step ahead of the anarchists?

In between laughs, Bringing Up Bobby will have you pondering life's important issues ... and wishing your family was as unique as the Wylers.

My Review:

I love it when I watch a movie that I am not familiar with, and laugh through the whole thing. This is exactly what I did with Bringing Up Bobby. It is a fun, witty, clean family film, that will interest the entire family! You can watch Bringing Up Bobby with no worries of negative influences on your children, or yourself. If you enjoy Saturday Night Live style humor or movies with Adam Sandler or Will Ferrell you will really enjoy Bringing Up Bobby.

A great Christmas gift idea for the comedy fan in your life. I highly recommend this movie and give it a thumbs up!

  1. I would like to win this so I can find out the answers to the questions you posted in the review, lol. Honestly; and to get some laughs in as it says it would be good to give to a comedy fan and that I am; whenever I can laugh is good.


  2. I am a big fan of Saturday Night Live, Adam Sandler, and Will Ferrell. There were so many times when I was in college and then at the beginning of my career that I watched Saturday Night Live and just couldn't quit laughing. Plus, there have been some more health issues that I am having to face. When I get down, my precious Aunt Genevieve tells me to watch a movie that will make me laugh. Maybe this is the movie that I need.

    Thank you,


  3. Sounds like a great movie and a comedy would be perfect to share with family and friends over the holiday season.
