The Sound of Music

We finished watching The Sound of Music with the boys tonight. It took 2 nights to get it all viewed.

Dayton laughed hysterically when he heard “I am 16 going on 17” because that song was in some modern movie he’d seen. He also nearly fell off the couch laughing when Captain Von Trapp was being lectured by Fraulein Maria about his lack of interest in his children and in his haste to cut her off he called her “Captain.” Funny…I didn’t even remember that line but then again…I hadn’t watched this film since my childhood.

Cameron was disappointed that no one got killed because yesterday I said there was a “war part” toward the end (trying to be sure they kept their interest when the romantic scene finally reared its ugly head and there was kissing and singing and more kissing). He also said he recognized some of the songs from somewhere else (he doesn’t remember where) and he’s glad to know where those songs came from now.

I’d say that overall it was a success…the boys learned something new and musically-based and no one got killed. What more can I ask for?!? (sounds like choir practice…LOL!)

    Now go watch the Spanish version – it's pretty good, actually. 🙂


  2. Next up – Yentl!You should try Seven Brides for Seven Brothers – pretty funny stuff. My kids love it, my husband rolls his eyes and threatens mutiny, and I just enjoy the badness of it.

    Don't tell, but my boys like those type of movies.Next try for Fiddler on the Roof, although the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers had mine splitting their sides laughing, too!
