No Limit Kids - Much Ado About Middle School
Original DVD Release
Ashton, Celeste, and Becca are three unlikely middle school outcasts who form a club in an abandoned theater. There , they meet Charlie (Bill Cobbs, Night at the Museum), a homeless man who shares their passion for musical theater. When the theater is scheduled to be torn down, the teenagers set out to save the landmark with a modern-day performance of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. Along the way, the group learns to treat others with respect and stand up for their beliefs. This Dove-approved film also features Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Lee Meriwether.

Going to a new school is always hard, but when you have personal problems in the home or are not one of the popular students it can be worse. It will bring back memories for the adults of there middle school years. It also will give future middle schoolers the confidence that they will do well and have lots of fun in school.
This DVD not only will be loved by the young, but also adults will find it very entertaining and helpful with their own children.
Celeste Kellogg and Ashton Harrell are very talented young people. They sing many songs on the DVD that are magnificent. Both of these young people have been on many other shows, movies and concerts. It is great to see young people who are not afraid to show others that you don't need to have sex in your movies or songs. No Limit Kids: Much Ado about Middle School is well put together and has outstanding actors and actresses.
This DVD is highly recommended by Dove Foundation for being suitable for all ages. I also highly recommend this DVD, for family viewing and lots of fun entertainment.
This DVD was given to me from Katie at Propeller Pure Flix Entertainment for viewing and reviewing purposes
The direction is limited as well, with most shots focusing on just one actor at a time, no creative approaches, very basic shots. The lighting is also often poor. This is a very low-budget film.
For all that, the story itself is reasonable, and quite old-fashioned: I was reminded of the old Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland movies where the kids decided to "put on a show!" The plot and situations come out fine. And there's nothing especially wrong with the film. You just shouldn't buy it expecting a big-budget picture out of Hollywood.
