Now that Amber is getting a little older I’m looking forward to when we can start having family movie nights together. Even when it’s just me and Bob I’m a sucker for a good family friendly flick. When my parents were here we all watched Smitty together. It’s a heartwarming movie about a daughter and her son who have lost their way and a Grandpa, his friend, and a Dog named Dog who help them find their way back to each other and happiness.
Since I watched this during the daytime Amber sat through it with us. She has a great love for anything having a puppy in it. There was a little bit of language and the boy in it–Ben–is quite the brat at first and there is more language in it than I normally would like Amber to be listening to. However it kept her interest throughout. There is a heart wrenching scene at the end and I was very worried that I was going to be upset that I let her watch it but it all turned out ok, and we actually had a few good, serious discussion on life and death as a result of the movie.
If you’re looking for a sweet tale of love and forgiveness for your next family movie night I’d recommend this movie! Hop over to Amazon to read more about the storyline and read the other glowing reviews!
