Weeping Camel Charms Toddler!

My friend Stef writes:

Just for the record, and just for fun, it is worth noting that I have seen this film twelve or more times and have never really seen it. Genesis Elise, my two year-old girlie, wants to be like Daddy and watch movies. She is sick of Einstein, Wiggles, Elmo and Baby Tad (sorry, Asher) and will only watch “the camo, story of weepee camo.” I usually fast forward the birth scene, but other than that there are a lot of things for her to really enjoy in this movie: the slow, quiet camera is so much better for her than anything on Nickelodeon (which we try not to watch), she loves the animlas, the thunderstorm, the little baby that cries when it is put on its leash, the fireplace, the soup, the prayers, and the people. I don’t know how I’m ever going to get this thing back to Netflix without causing a toddler mini-ruckus.

    What I always had a hard time understanding is why they would target just one company. Don’t like it when they offer benefits to same-sex couples? Then you should probably boycott all companies that do so. Why does it make a difference that it’s Disney rather than Bank of America. Or Proctor & Gamble since we know they’re owned by Satanists.
    (That’s sarcasm, by the way. I do know that’s an urban legend.)

    Jeffrey,

    You’re killing me this morning. I must admit that a facetious sense of humor reaches me, but the point behind the humor is right on. Thanks for being here.

    : Industry analysts had said that the boycott had
    : had absolutely no impact on Disney’s earnings

    Surely it must have had some impact on their earnings…

    Jeffrey. Love ya, love your show.

    Now, is it just me or are you a bit on the sarcastic edge this week? Professionally, I think it’s great. Stupid people shouldn’t be doing loud things.

    Anyways, I love your site and reviews and have for a while. I actually started on blogger.com because I wanted to comment on something here and – I don’t know – I think I made a wrong turn somewhere and ended up starting my own. And have spent too many hours writing, writing, writing.

    Thanks for ruining my personal life.

    And, of course, keep up the good work.

    Love,
    jason

    In short, they gave a boycott, and nobody came. Well, not enough people came. Or, as Inigo Montoya once memorably said, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” And now, let’s all go see The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe!

    Jeff,

    I’ll have to PM Stef, but my three year old loves the film. She has watched it about 7 times. After we watched the movie the first time she asked me if it had a happy ending. When she asked her grandma and grandpa to watch the movie she told them “it’s alright it has a happy ending.” I cannot think of another film that moves at that pace that she even enjoys. A facinating film.
