Not a bad kid's film, thought I. It was about the third time around that I found myself getting into it and humming along. The little actress in the red party dress is wonderful as Sally. Her dancing is lively and animated, yet so natural. Her expressions are perfect, not gee-whizish when gee-whiz isn't called for. Good singing voice. She's every bit as good as Shirley Temple was at the same age -- more natural and less theatrical. The other players do their jobs, too. The marching band is good and the kids' pantomimic playing of trombones, flutes and other instruments is a nice little touch.
The tight beat of the music, the sharpness of the drums, the one-voice sound of the choral singing all combine to give the music a captivating quality.
Amazon.com's review wasn't quite the back of a hand, but wasn't much above it. Garish? I thought the production was colorful. Poorly lit? It sparkled for me. Amateurishly shot and edited? With more than 30 syndicated TV shows under my producer/director belt I didn't see those defects. A comprimised choice for kids? After 15 years this video is still Amazon's number 12 best-seller for kid sing-alongs, has sold in the millions of copies. The lady whose computer I was working on said this he her 3rd copy of Wee Sing Together -- wore out the other two. The slip cover was positively tattered from use. Maybe Amazon needs kid reviewers for kid material.
Lacking that, old fogies like me will do. When I returned the next day with computer parts the lady thoughtfully tuned the TV to the History Channel. "Uh ... well ... Norma, do you have that Wee Sing video handy?"
I can't say that as an adult, it's a particularly enjoyable movie. The kids all overact every single line and exaggerate their facial expressions to the extreme. That said, the singing is fairly good, and the dancing and concept is cute. I don't know what the magic element is, but it seems to work to keep kids enthralled. Most of the songs are classics: Itsy bitsy spider, Bingo, Old MacDonald, If you're happy and you know it, Head Shoulders Knees & Toes, Rain Rain Go Away, etc.
If you have kids aged 4-8, I'd highly recommend it. Although I wouldn't recommend having your kids live in front of the tv screen, it's good for parents to have a secret weapon that will guarantee an hour of quiet while getting important chores done occasionally.
