By [KNDY] Dennis A. Amith TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 28, 2009
Format: DVD
"A PLUMM SUMMER" is a heartwarming family film that combines mystery, suspense, action and a homage to the classic family films of yesteryear.

The film is a first for Director Caroline Zelder (who has worked as an editor and involved in casting for films such as "The Patriot") and also a film she co-wrote with T.J. Lynch and Frank Antonelli.

Based on a true story, the film revolves around the theft of Froggy Doo, the popular frog marionette owned by TV host Happy Herb. His television show "Happy Herb & Froggy Doo" was among the popular kids shows on television and the theft happened in Billings, Montana (the hometown of screenplay writer T.J. Lynch).

"A PLUMM SUMMER" focuses on a family and their two children Elliott Plumm (Chris Massoglia) and his younger brother Rocky (Owen Pearce).

Elliott is a shy young teenager who is constantly called names because of his quiet and shy demeanor. He may seem that way in front of his classmates but at home, Elliott is a child that enjoys Hardy Boys mystery novels and photography.

His younger brother Rocky on the other hand is a typical child who is addicted to the television show "Happy Herb and Froggy Doo" and believes that Froggy Doo is real character and loves the character so much that his side of the bedroom which he shares with his brother is plastered with Froggy Doo merchandise.

As for the Plumm's family life, his mother Roxie (Lisa Guerrero) tries to keep the family going strong,while her husband Mick (William Baldwin), a former boxer who tends to hang out with a bad crowd of guys and constantly gets drunk.

Roxie worries that her husband is out drinking all the time while not working and not spending time with the children.

intesting cast, engaging story, family-friendly; tells the story of a family's real struggles during a defined period of time, through the eyes of a teenager who wants to do what is right. If only there were more like him today. The story definitely leaves you wanting to know the 'rest of the story' but otherwise, very worth watching 2-3 times.

My brother bought this movie on a whim, as he lives in Bozeman, and hadn't had a chance to see it in the Cinema. He unexpectedly loved it, and promptly had our nice and nephew watch it. My 11 year-old niece declared it "The best movie EVER!" No, it won't dazzle you with its realism (though it is based on a true story), and as far as the action goes, it's tame; but it's a lovely story of familial redemption, and the children did a wonderful job. Owen Pearce just might be the cutest kid on the planet! The scenery is gorgeous, as one would expect to see from a movie filmed in Montana.

A Plumm Summer is a sweet little indie film pulled off perfectly. There are some big names in the supporting cast who are all note-perfect, most notably Peter Scolari and Henry Winkler. Billy Baldwin also puts in a very good turn for the first time in quite a while. Newcomers Chris Massoglia and Owen Pearce couldn't be any cuter and more adorable as the brothers/stars of the film. Massoglia (credited as "Chris J. Kelly") is particularly outstanding considering it's his first jump from TV to film - you really like him and feel for his character. To me, A Plumm Summer hearkens back to 6:00 on Sunday when the family would gather around the TV with dinners in hand to watch the Wonderful World of Disney's weekly fare. This is like that... but better quality than most of what Walt served up. There's some real heart to this effort thanks to genuine drama that hits a message without becoming overwrought with itself. The mystery element to the story is none too deep or complex, but it doesn't need to be; it's just the vehicle that introduces some very likable characters and lets us get to know them. There's a laugh or two along the way and everything is generally light-hearted and fun. It's a good family film that entertains as well as confronts a serious note or two along the way. It won't change the landscape of movie-making, but it's awfully nice to see that somebody will still make a sweet, innocent film like this. Kudos to the folks responsible for doing that. A very sweet, endearing, charming, family film worth anyone's time.

My son and I would check this video out at our local library and one day it was no longer there...so we had to buy it. It is a great family movie for little kids about froggy doo, a puppet that was kidnapped one day during a community fair. The kids get together and solve the case while they learn about family and friends....A great kids movie for the whole family with out any adult subjects.

I was one of the lucky few who caught this movie in the theaters before it was suffocated by the studio blockbusters. A great movie for all the family with a little bit of everything in it for kids and adults alike. Shot in glorious Montana, it was actually inspired by a true story. Who would have believed the FBI was sent in to investigate the kidnapping of a puppet! Some great performances and a movie you'll never get bored of watching! Well worth buying for one's library!
