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.
