Editorial Reviews

Three unlikely friends set out on a journey to find the dreaded ghost of Captain LeRouge whose treasure-laden ship was lost in the Louisiana bayou over two hundred years ago. What they find is an adventure beyond their wildest imagination and the magical swamp creature "Labou" whose whistles are rumored to be the original inspiration for jazz. With the help of Labou, the kids race to stay one step ahead of two crazy oil moguls, but can they find the long lost treasure and save the swamps before its too late?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kid's Movie June 18, 2009
My 7 year old son gave this movie 5 stars. He's watching it right now - again - and laughing. What's not to like? A ghost, pirates, hidden treasure, kid heroes, idiot bad guys, action, suspense, friendship, humor, lessons learned, and of course the lovable Labou.

4.0 out of 5 stars My 8 year old LOVED it March 5, 2010
By R. Dean
My eight year old boy LOVED this movie. He thought Labou was ADORABLE and thought the high jinks in the story were hilarious. As a parent, I did NOT like how the one boy seemed to be saying things like "Idiot!" and "Losers!" to the other kids. He was a total brat for most of the movie. Adults and teens would see that he was "all talk" but younger kids wouldn't catch on to it. They would just see a mean kid who the other two kids continue wanting to be friends with.

But all in all, it is fairly harmless and has a "save the environment" theme because the little creature Labou is in danger of losing his habitat. So the kids end up trying to find the treasure AND save the swamp. Fairly simplistic plot but enjoyable for my 8 year old.

My son is afraid of ghosts but was not scared by Captain LaRouge, except for a couple times that he jumped out unexpectedly. I was happy about this because oftentimes he gets scared after seeing movies or shows dealing with ghosts.

My son was so taken with this movie that we have already ordered a t-shirt with Labou's picture on it. He was very disappointed that we could not order a Labou stuffed animal. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Children's Movie June 4, 2009
Labou is definitely going to become a new children's classic movie. It combines all the great elements of classic movies. There is adventure, comedy, pirates, and buried treasure. It has a G rating so it is suitable for any age and also has a good moral lesson. I'm a teacher and showed it to my second grade class and they absolutely loved it. I recommend it to any parent or teacher who wants an engaging entertaining movie that has a great story. I loved that it was set and shot in New Orleans. The setting added a little something more to the film. Overall, just a great film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the 80's! April 9, 2009
By Greg
If you grew up in the 80's like I did, share this movie with your kids! It's a fun romp in the genre that created such classics as The Goonies, Gremlins, and Adventures in Babysitting. A heartwarming story about friendship and adventure, the whole family can enjoy it. And the creature is so cute! I hope they make stuffed animal versions!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Family Movie July 7, 2009
Movie is well worth the watch. Gives the pirate theme but doesn't give your kids a nightmare. Something the family can watch more than once

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun! May 29, 2009
I almost didn't get this movie but since it's a Kids First I did. And I am so glad. I am in constant search for kid movies that have African American role models. I LOVED that the smartest character in this whole movie was an African American boy. The creature was adorable and my 6 kids have already watched it 7 times.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I really expected this to be better. The acting was TERRIBLE and one of the first scenes of the movie is the mayor of New Orleans involved in what seems like a very shady deal. Read more
