Editorial Reviews

Review

"This intelligent screenplay about Sir Isaac Newton's battle to convince skeptics of the value of his scientific discoveries emphasizes the importance of perseverance and hard work, although kids may first get drawn into the story by a fictional subplot about a lab assistant more interested in romance than science." -- Parenting, February 1999

A great video, well written and produced about Isaac Newton. He is brought to life in a wonderful story with a great visual of the laws of motion. My students enjoy watching it each year.

We are a homeschooling family studying early American History time period and Sir Isaac Newton was within this time period. I wanted to help cement in my kids' minds who he was and videos always seem to help. The story held their attention easily and I appreciated the fact that somebody spent money and effort trying to develop a storyline about a scientist/mathematician . It's probably hard to come up with an interesting, engaging story about math!

However, I had 2 issues with the movie. One, was that a 12 year old looking boy (the younger looking boy on the video cover, who is the narrator of the story and clearly hasn't even gone through puberty since he sounds like a 10-12 year old boy- "girly" voice our kids have prior to puberty) develops a relationship (and kisses) another 12 year old looking girl. The two end up marrying, but it just seemed ridiculous to have such young characters kissing and "falling in love". In todays day of "sex sells everything", I don't see why the makers of this film needed to set before children's eyes the idea of young children kissing and supposedly marrying. As if they don't see enough inadvertent messages everywhere from commercials, magazine covers, etc telling them about the physical aspects of relationships. Granted, we are a conservative family, but I think any reputable child psychologist would agree that at 12 yrs, or even 17 yrs for that matter, (which that boy was definitely not!), children are not emotionally mature enough to handle marriage and the natural responsibilities that come with it of raising little ones themselves.

For those families with like-minded views, I wanted to make you aware of this aspect in the movie.

The VHS was fine. I had paid extra for next day delivery. It stated that it would be delivered on Friday. I did not receive the VHS until at least five days later. Which at that time I no longer needed it. I will save the VHS for future use, but was disappointed in the delivery.
