Amazon.com

The tale of a crafty, mischievous little rabbit who outsmarts even the fiercest animals, Brer Rabbit is a computer-animated rendering of Uncle Remus's "The Adventures of Brer Rabbit". Brer Turtle (voiced by Danny Glover) introduces Janey (Rhyon Nicole Brown) to Brer Rabbit (Nick Cannon) by describing how Brer Rabbit's miscommunications with man and the Moon (Wanda Sykes), combined with his insatiable appetite for vegetables, initially caused the descent of animals from space to earth. As Janey and Brer Turtle follow Brer Rabbit through his encounters with Brer Bear (Gary Anthony Williams), Brer Wolf (Wayne Brady), and Brer Fox (D.L. Hughley), his cleverness and cunning are evident as he continually outsmarts the other animals to benefit his own situation. Brer Rabbit's exploits lead to his exclusion from friendship with the other animals and, while he does eventually exhibit some compassion toward Brer Turtle, he remains a trickster to the end who's professed secret is to "give the other animals what they think they want." Several catchy songs add to the appeal of these classic Southern African-American stories. DVD bonus features include "Outfox the Fox for Fish," a very challenging series of math and logic problems and "The Great Brer Chase," a set of trivia questions based on the movie. (Ages 3 to 12) --Tami Horiuchi

    I was introduced to Brer Rabbit via Uncle Remus' stories in Song of the South. This DVD does not remotely come close to the stories told by the lovable Uncle Remus. They are watered down political correct inaccurate bla bla mindless pap. Uncle Remus' original stories had substance and wisdom I didn't find in this DVD.

    While this movie may not be the same as Disney's classic "Song Of The

    South", this direct-to-video film is a beautifully animated, clean,

    wholesome, entertaining family film. This movie is filled with very

    memorable characters, plenty of adventure, a lot of captivating

    stories, great moral lessons, and superb animation. This film also has

    a lot of clean humor without any of the sexual innuendo, lame puns, or

    gross-out humor that's found in many animated T.V. shows and films

    nowadays. Even though this film is aimed at small children, you can

    enjoy this movie whether you're 4 or 40, and it's great for the whole

    family to watch together (or by yourself). On a scale of 1 to 10, I

    give this film a 10 all the way! You will not be disappointed.

    I haven't seen the whole movie yet because my 3 1/2 year old asked me to stop it. He squirmed through Brer Fox trying to eat Brer Rabbit, and the Buzzard trying to eat him, and the alligator, but when the bear had him, it was too scarey. He has seen Curious George, Toy Story 2, and the Little Bear Movie, and enjoyed them. You can guage from that wheher this is appropriae for your preschooler. I couldn't help but laugh myself.

    Folks, let's get real, don't follow the stupidity of overanalyzing this with PC interpretations and looking for hidden messages about race relations and slavery. This film is not about any of that! It's basically a charming little story about a little girl whose mother sends her out to play and she meets a turtle (Danny Glover) who introduces her to the wonderful world of the Brer Rabbit stories.

    Although this is based more on folkmaster Julius Lester's translations (from the original heavy dialect of Joel Chandler Harris's 19th century transcriptions of these slave stories) than the Disney film, its still quite good and the original wascally wabbit's tales are quite entertaining. Wanda Sykes is particularly loveable as Sister Moon and Nick Cannon is well cast as the heroic hare.

    Children are bound to love this and adults (once they stop the overanalysis) will enjoy it too with an open mind. As for the comparison with SONG OF THE SOUTH, this one has more on Brer Rabbit and the "creetures" (as Uncle Remus pit it) than Uncle Remus himself. SOTS ony had three cartoons dealing with Brer Rabbit while this has about three times as many episodes. I look at this more as a modern counterpart to SOTS as opposed to something that degrades the older film (I personally feels this compliments both SOTS and the Joel Harris books). In either case, get it and laugh.

    I ordered this movie because I so enjoyed Uncle Remus' wonderful stories in Song of the South as a kid; and I loved the wonderful songs to go with those stories. So, I was a bit disappointed that this did not include any of those songs or any similarity to the old Disney Brer Rabbit stories. That being said, it is a fun, entertaining DVD. I have a 5 year old and she has really enjoyed it. It is told in small stories so it can be watched in one sitting or in little bits and pieces which is great for us. There a few good lessons in it but mostly it is just entertaining. Children aren't going to learn any deep invaluable lessons, but they also are not going to pick up any sassy, argumentative behavior from it either. No rude humor but no sappy overly goody-two-shoed characters either. I love the soulful spunkiness of Brer Rabbit and his positive outlook towards adversity. It is not complex but it is clever. Just clean fun. It is a little different in a refreshing way from the usual animated entertainment for children. I high recommend especially since I noticed it was on sale!

    As a kid I remember the adventures of Ber rabbit as narrated by Uncle Remus and I inadvertantly thought this was it. I'll keep looking as enjoyed them when I was young and would like my grandchildren to see them also.

    My father had asked me for The Adventures of Brer Rabbit for christmas. He wanted the original version. I thought that is what I had ordered since it said classic on the order page. I did not see where Wayne Brady was located on the cover. I simply did not pay attention. If I would have I would have known that this piece of crap was not the original. My dad hates it. He wanted it to share with his grandson. He simply removed it from the dvd player and put it in the closet. When I had made the order I only saw the title and it said classic, so I bought it. Boy was that the wrong mve.....

    I grew up listening to Br'er Rabbit Tales. For those who think that Br'er Rabbit is inseparable from Uncle Remus, Uncle Remus was invented as a way to tell the stories when it was transcribed by a White Atlantan journalist who heard the tales from Black sharecroppers on a plantantion. Uncle Remus is not essential to the Br'er Rabbit tales, which are the result of African American and Native American oral traditions, and are told just fine without him there. This DVD does a fine job of giving us a good many Br'er Rabbit stories. I thought it was a cute retelling, nice animation, and a good range of voices from plenty of African American actors. My kids enjoyed watching it, and I got to share a bit of what I grew up hearing at the many story festivals I attended as a little girl. For those who are disappointed that this isn't Song of the South, give Br'er Rabbit a chance in a movie that actually focuses on Br'er Rabbit... unless it wasn't Br'er Rabbit that interested you in the first place...
