Okay, I'm a HUGE musicals fan, so when we sang a "The Sound of Music" medley in chorus last year, I HAD to go and buy the movie! This, honestly, is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. It's one of my favorites (losing only to Gone With the Wind & The Wizard of Oz). The music is - as Common Sense says - glorious, and the soundtrack is one of My Favorite Things! ;) The only things I'd be concerned about as a parent are the Hitler references and the mentions of drinking at the parties; nothing too bad, that's just the time period of the movie, but younger kids may not understand that stuff very well. There are a few kisses but nothing very passionate (they're actually very sweet, but I'm biased, hehe!). Put plainly: if you haven't seen the movie, see it, and if you have, show others. It's simply wonderful!
