Good Rental Movie will keep the parents engaged too.

This movie got my son to want to play chess! Which we are doing daily right now. But the theme -that is for the adults/parents - went over his head as it was suppose to. I liked that the 7 year old was portrayed as a true 7 yo.

good movie if you like chess.

I liked searching for bobby fisher because it was about chess and i personally like chess. It was about a real person. The camera followed the characters really closely.

searching for bobby fischer

The characters, even the sideliners, are compelling, and a good streak of humor runs through the movie, especially in competition scenes when the nervous chess parents act less mature than their children.

Excellent message for parents

I think this movie has an excellent message, especially for any parent that has seen a unique talent in their child. I think kids will appreciate the message if they are at least 10 years old (and not accustomed to action movies). There is some pressure from adults, which is why I increased the age.
