Bringing Up Bobby DVD Giveaway and Review

You've seen your typical dysfunctional families, but never before have you seen a more humorous one than Bobby's family. They are all reunited in the most unusual way as they gather to celebrate Bobby's 16th birthday and the reading of his parents will.

In the latest movie on DVD from Provident Films, Bringing Up Bobby, takes you on a journey of Bobby, an almost 16 year old goth kid in high school who suddenly finds himself crushing on a girl name Liz. He will try anything to make her notice him, including changing into a preppy, dashing young man in hopes that Liz will notice him. Yet what Bobby seems to be missing is discovering who he is all along.

James, his oldest brother has spent the last 12 years raising Bobby since the death of their parents and has been waiting on a death certificate so they can finally read his parents will. James is a Christian who tries to convince Bobby that he needs to find a relationship with Jesus instead of just accepting Jesus as a religion. James deals with communication via a "war table" dressed in costume because he cites from Deuteronomy that it's hard to stay mad at a man in costume.

Andrea, is the only sister of the family and spends her life in search of fame, wealth and in bossing her husband Walter around and being at her beck and call. She only shows up for the reading of the will, but claims she is there strictly for Bobby's 16th birthday.

Dennis is another brother that has fled to Russia to escape the anarchists that he feels are pursuing him in search of money that is owed. He is stuck in the 60's and after being deported from Russia finds himself back at the family home. He is hoping that there may be some money to pay off his debts. He doesn't have a relationship with God either.

Trust me when I say, that this movie is a classic and while we were watching it, my teenager and her friends all stopped, sat down, laughed throughout the movie all the way to the end. No prompting required. There are some great classic lines in the movie and I think my all time favorite is when Goth Bobby declares to himself that "he doesn't need anyone, no one and then yells out loud for James to give him a ride."

We laughed so much and this movie falls in line with such comedy greats like Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and Steve Carrell. So if you love their movies, you've got to see this one. The message is one for families and this is a Christian family classic, if I can get it back from my teens! I would rate this one a perfect 5 out of 5 stars and the trailer doesn't do it justice.
