Win a Free Copy of “The Solomon Bunch” DVD!

posted by Nell Minow

The Solomon Bunch is a sweet, gently funny story of a group of children who ponder the meaning of Proverbs 18:13 “He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him,” but don’t fully understand it until they discover their own mistake in judging what they thought was criminal plot.  Its kids-view story-telling makes it family-friendly and its low-key lessons will provide a good opening for discussion of the difference between being smart and being wise and the importance of questioning your assumptions.  It is especially suitable for church groups and Sunday schools.

I have five copies to give away!  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Solomon” in the subject line and tell me about talent show you attended or participated in.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only).  I will pick five winners at random on February 9.  Good luck!

Interview: Ryan Potter, Hiro in "Big Hero 6"
Ryan Potter provided the voice for Hiro in this week's DVD/Blu-Ray Pick of the Week, the Oscar-winning Big Hero 6. Talking to him on the phone, it was easy to imagine I was talking to Hiro himself. Other than a few moments with Maya Rudolph, who played Hiro's harried guardian, he did not interact
