Our Family’s Favorite Movie: The Sound of Music

Favorite Family Movies

I wanted to get more active on BlogFrog so when they asked me if I wanted to participate in a conversation with RedBox, I said yes. The topic of the conversation is what is your family’s favorite movie and how many times have you watched it?!

Truth be told my husband always claims that Caddyshack is his favorite movie and he can quote most of the music, but it’s only because he’s embarrassed to admit that The Sound of Music is actually his all time favorite movie. You only have to say a few words of a song in that movie or hum a bar and he will belt out the rest of the song. And he knows all the lyrics. Even the obscure songs like I Feel Confident … which is not my favorite song in the movie.

My kids love this movie too. There is something about the fact that it has two parts that makes this movie an event. And both parts of the movie are distinctly different … Part I was where we stopped when they were little as the Nazi pursuit was deemed too scary by me. They can handle Part II now, but they are also more fascinated by the love story between Liesl and Rolf.

My kids’ elementary school just put on The Sound of Music play and it was terrific. The best part is that my kids could sing along because they know all the words too!

Have you ever used RedBox? I am too lazy to do the return of DVD rentals so I more apt to buy the DVD or to rent the movie from my cable company but my Mom Friend swears by it.
