Old Fashioned {DVD Review}

oldfashiondvd

A romantic-drama, OLD FASHIONED centers on Clay Walsh, a former frat boy who gives up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God. When Amber Hewson, a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul, drifts into the area and rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas, which are new and intriguing to her. And Clay, though he tries to fight and deny it, simply cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Ultimately, Clay must step out from behind his relational theories and Amber must overcome her own fears and deep wounds as the two of them, together, attempt the impossible: an “old-fashioned” and God-honoring courtship in contemporary America.

This family classic from the producers of Chicago, Hairspray, and Footloose features Academy Award winner Christopher Walken as Captain Hook and unforgettable songs, including “I’m Flying,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” and “Never Never Land” that will have everyone singing along for years to come!

Barrie’s classic tale and features the iconic songs of the 1954 original Broadway production, including “I’m Flying,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” and “Never Never Land,” PLUS brand new songs penned by Amanda Green, songwriter and daughter of Peter Pan’s original lyricist, to create a truly new and memorable musical event.

Bonus Features • The Making of PETER PAN LIVE! – An exciting backstage look at the creation of an all-new production of the classic Broadway musical from rehearsals through performance.

Our Thoughts…

Peter Pan Live did not disappoint. My 6 1/2 year old daughter adored seeing this live musical version. She’s asked to watch it many more times since her first viewing. I am so happy she’s fallen in love with a such a classic!

Not having anything to compare this too, I think it was done well. The acting and singing was quite enjoyable. The dancing was fun to see! Who knew Captain Hook was capable of tap dancing?  The songs were memorable and I believe owning the musical soundtrack is a must in addition to the DVD.

It’s truly a magical tale and certain to be well received by the entire family, especially children. I hope to see more live classics presented by NBC!
