    Montana-set, reality-inspired picture feels like an homage to a bygone era of moviemaking: It takes its time to build character and story, there's hardly a CG effect in sight, and there's nothing high-concept about it.

    A Plumm Summer isn't remotely in the same league as "My Dog Skip," "Fly Away Home," "Lassie" or any of the handful of traditional family dramas that have restored luster to a genre that's been overtaken by techno-acrobats.
  3. This family film is willing to tackle important issues such as burgeoning sexuality, alcoholism and a troubled home life but does so in a bland and unconvincing story.

    I just bought this movie for my kids and what a TREAT. We all loved it. We cried and laughed together and had one of the most enjoyable family movie nights nina long time. I highly recommend this movie to any family who is look to truly enjoy a film with their kids. My kids range in agree from 5 to 11. Treat yourself with this special film. I wish there were more films like this out there, the pickings are very limited when it comes to good family films. Thanks to the filmmakers!! Full Review »

    Very good family movie. It's much different from all the glitzy films out now, and in that sense it's incredibly refreshing. Some awkward moments w/ Lisa Guerrero, but everyone else does a fantastic job. Full Review »

    This is quite an appealing movie and particularly refreshing right now with the current overemphasis on computer animation. My nine year son loved it, but I practically had to bribe him to get him to go --- he had seen the TV spots for it and the Froggy Doo references gave him the impression it was for younger kids. I thought the acting was quite strong, particularly William Baldwin as the hard drinking father, and the kids are all super. Somehow the flow of the movie needed one last polishing to my mind, but all in all it succeeds with a rather ambitious mixture of themes. Despite some farcical elements, it is ultimately a serious and thought provoking film. I hope it will find wider distribution. Full Review »
