Bringing Up Bobby DVD Review

About the Movie

When it comes to whipping up a somewhat-edible dinner or passing along faith-focused advice, James Wyler has plenty of experience.

For a dozen years, James has been both big brother and surrogate parent to his siblings. Trusting God to lead his path, James has done his best to honor his deceased parents as he's raised his two brothers and a sister.

Now, as youngest brother Bobby is about to turn 16, everyone returns to the family home to celebrate at a waterslide park—and to finally hear the reading of their parents' will.

Sister Andrea is hoping for the largest share of the pie to maintain her lavish lifestyle. Brother Dennis—make that The Dennis—needs some quick cash to keep the anarchists at bay. (Don't ask ...)

Then there's Bobby. He just wants to figure out what Liz, the new girl in school, likes so that he can impress her. As The Dennis says, Bobby's dealing with "a little bit of the teenage angst."

Add in a hidden stash of cash, an attractive lawyer, a friend dealing with issues at home, and The War Table—where topics of vital importance (or not!) are discussed—and you have a different family kind of comedy. Very different.

Bringing Up Bobby is a quirky story of family, identity, and faith that isn't afraid to show that life can get muddled. And when it does, there usually aren't easy answers to all of the questions.

So grab a plate of tuna casserole and find out if Bobby will discover what Liz is looking for in a guy. And more importantly, will he ever be able to figure out who he is?

Will Andrea get enough stuff? Will James ever have a date?

And will The Dennis be able to stay one step ahead of the anarchists?

In between laughs, Bringing Up Bobby will have you pondering life's important issues ... and wishing your family was as unique as the Wylers.

My Take on the Movie I had not heard about this movie until recently when I was asked to review it. After watching the movie and checking out the website and facebook page, I can tell you that I was impressed. This movie was a great one for the whole family. It was fun and enjoyable and overall there was a great message enclosed within that is great for especially the tween to older teen generation.I plan to share this movie with my youth group at church as I think the message stands for itself!

If you too want to experience the message that this movie shares you can find it on Amazon!
