It also put JB's music out to a young audience, and the results/profit from that may not be accounted for a few more years..so I think all-in-all it was a success for him..and the family.
The movie itself was very cheesy..but fun to spend the evening with the kids.
AND the movie industry had to account for my 4 tickets being purchased for a family film..so maybe it will prompt more in the future 8)
We will also most likely buy the dvd just to support JB..and place it in the JB collection.
I also love Floridays as a laid-back-wanting-to-go-to-florida-and-worship-the-sun song.
Well Said!!

I am single with no kids and I liked it. Maybe the
Bully getting His helped. Maybe the scenes of places I will
never see.. also I kind of like the song "Good Guys Win" 8) 8) 8)

I agree, a very good family movie. Also good for the kids to show them that they can make a difference.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.

I thought it was a bad movie, the acting was average at best, except for Wondering Where The Lions Are the soundtrack was pretty much unlistenable and the message I got from it was vandalism is OK if you think it's for a good cause. One viewing at the free screening was enough. If I had paid to see it I would have wanted my money back.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

Think about that….you mite be encouraging him to make another one just like it.
Take the kids to see or buy the Al Gore documentary. It will have a longer lasting effect on them about the future of our planet and maybe inspire them to make a difference.

Oh, I think too many people take too many things too seriously. JB didnt commit a crime against nature by making this movie, and if little-ole-me can inspire him to make another movie, then God Bless me and JB!...now I am inspired to buy 2 dvds knowing that you will not buy your support copy.
I would have to buy into all of Al Gores crap to ever buy his dvd for me or my kids, so that most likely will never happen.
It got down to 22 degrees last night, and it was Easter Sunday..I'M COLD!...I'm kinda for global warming at the moment...in fact, every member of my family went out on the stoop and sprayed hairspray and oven cleaner straight up into the sky this morning in hopes it will warm up a degree or two (we were singing Floridays while doing it) :pirate:

I know what you mean, it wasn't an Oscar Winner by any means but it wasn't a horrible movie either. To me it was good clean family fun. I enjoyed the scenery around Boca Grande, FL plus it was fun seeing Buffett in the movie. It was exactly what I would have expected in this kind of a movie. I waited until it was on HBO and finally saw it. I applaud Jimmy for wanting to make a movie that he could take his family to.

Our girls really enjoyed it.
Compared to all that Hollywood is putting out these days, overall it was a good family movie.

It was the same type of movie I enjoyed as a kid.... like an afterschool special for those of you who recall those....

It was simple.... but I must say I wasnt expecting an Oscar winner.

I have seen worse...... it beat Ricky Bobby IMHO or what ever that silly movie was called.

I didn't think it was going to be an epic movie, and it wasn't. But it was a cute movie that I enjoyed. It's wasn't a life-changing movie for me, but who says it had to be. I just took it for what it was intended to be. A nice, enjoyable family movie.

Don't go into these things expecting a GREAT CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE. Go into them hoping for a fun little family flick. If you do that, you'll enjoy life more.

People place too high of expectations on things, and PHs put WAY too high of expectations on anything that Jimmy does. That is why so many people are disappointed so often.

Make your expectations realistic, THEN decide if you are satisfied or disappointed.

Yep...My 8 y/o enjoyed it and left feeling like he might have a voice in a grown up world (which he makes known to me regularly).

If cynical adults got something out of it, that would be great, but I'm pretty sure the film was aimed primariy for kids...while they still have open minds.
Some people never find it, some only pretend
But me, I just want to live happily ever after every now and then.

I'm big in the nature conservation and it was extremely fitting for those trying to save animals.

I liked it.

My kid and myself enjoyed the Hoot movie alot. I think it has a great environmental plot. And I also enjoyed the beach and water scenes as well. Makes me wish i could go to Florida just thinking about it.
