    an interesting mix of characters. the producers try to use comedy to convey some serious messages about love, friendship, commitment, the importance of family. the humor, especially the oldest brother, is on a Jim Carrey level. this does not seem to mix well with the serious topics touched on, such as alcoholism, family dysfunction ( in the title character's friend's home, not the lead characters' home)....very imaginative screenplay. not believable, but seems not to aim at realism as much as comedy and sending some feel good messages about relationships. it is a film that i found to be an interesting adventure once, not sure where it would go next, but not a 'keeper'.... 'laughter doeth good like a medicine' (Book of Proverbs), but those who are looking for a Christian film that can do the difficult balance between staying reverent toward the things of God and still bringing humor to the screen, may be disappointed.... I'd say PG for all the scattered life topics mixed in like a salad. an adult who is mature can sort it all out, but very confusing to children. two and a half stars, but praise to the film makers for no bad language, nudity, and only mild comedic violence.... keep trying, there is obviously talent to make a film that hits closer to the deeper things of God. i know it is aimed at a teen audience, but this generation is in deep moral trouble and relly needs a deep, truthful message from the Word of God. it's life or death.... Lord bless you all as you make decisions for your family viewing and to the producers as they do other projects. : )

    Comedy of an acquired taste.

    "A Different Kind of Comedy" is a very good description, because this is certainly a movie which is meant for those of an acquired comedic taste. I don't know if older viewers will like this movie since this is targeted for teenagers and young adults; including some of the jokes. Bringing Up Bobby is more than a comedy, however, as there are a select number of serious scenes. I have already read a few reviews before writing this and though this isn't a perfect movie, I didn't feel it was terrible either and I feel giving it a 1 star is a bit harsh_ (course one of those two 1 star rated reviews I read was from a professed Atheist lol)

    Bringing Up Bobby is about a 16-year-old named Bobby who is trying to figure out who and how he should be as a man. This film is also about a contested Will, which is being fought over amongst the Wyler children of the deceased parents. Bobby has an unusual family: his brother Dennis is a drifter who also doesn't seem to know where to go next in life and hopes for part of the Will money in order to pay back some "anarchists", his sister Andrea is a selfish materialist who desires all of her deceased parent's assets at the expense of family unity, and his other brother James is a Christian who has been raising Bobby like a father would. Bobby also has a friend named Eric whose mother is an alcoholic. Part of why Bobby is trying to find himself is because of a cute girl named Liz who is playing hard to get and is a Christian; James also has a bit of a love interest with his sister's lawyer.

    I'll admit there were a few scenes where the creators of Bringing Up Bobby tried to make a joke and it kind of failed for me, but I did find some of the things in this movie funny nevertheless like the boxing lol. I like the concept of "The War Table" in that nothing is off the table for discussion while in attendance, although I can see how some viewers might feel the wearing of costumes is a bit weird. I like how the movie ended overall it seemed somewhat realistic and glad to see things turned out well for most of the characters. My main complaint for this film, however, is I don't think the creators of Bringing Up Bobby understand Goths and anarchists as well as they think. Most of the talk concerning anarchists I didn't find funny, except the one scene where Dennis timidly hides when he thinks an anarchist is knocking at the door. Theologically speaking I thought what James told Bobby about Christianity, God, and Jesus Christ were very well put. Granted there were a few imperfections, but I thought it was decent and I liked it.

    Christian comedy should not be impossible! Tim Hawkins pulls it off, and so do many other stand up comics, but this movie was a complete failure. It alternated between very preachy "serious" moments and "funny" wacky actions that were totally out of place. Christian filmmakers have to learn how to balance out the message with the humor. So far, the closest I've seen to a Christian based comedy is "Road to Redemption" and "Flywheel." The others, including this one, beat the viewer over the head with a message, and get so silly with the "comedy" that no one over the age of 10 could enjoy it. I appreciate these guys trying, but I would say this movie fell far from the mark.

    The first words I think of when I think of this movie are, "Funny, weird, quirky". It has a sort of "Napoleon Dynamite" feel but with a Christian message.

    "Bringing Up Bobby" has us facing the question of "what is our identity?". Is it like Bobby's best friend Eric; goth, falling into a depression because of his family life? Or maybe Bobby's older sister who is greedy and only cares about appearances? We could look at Bobby's older brother Dennis, who looks toward drugs for his happiness. And we have Bobby, who tries to please everyone and is frustrated when he just can't win anyway he is.

    Through the reading of Bobby's parents will we see everyone's true colors and what is important to them. Bobby's other older brother, James, the brother who is raising him, challenges Bobby to find his true self and to search in the Bible for his answer.

    Although the movie doesn't end like most movies do "all happy and everything is perfect" you leave the movie feeling at peace. You realize the important things in life and that in order to find your true identity in life you first need to find Jesus.

    I totally LOVED this movie. I couldn't stop laughing through out the whole thing. The filming is very well done and the actors in it were perfect for their parts. My favorite scene is when the family goes to an indoor water park to celebrate Bobby's 16th birthday. It was right after the reading of the will and no one was happy with the outcome or each other but they still wanted to be together as a family, no matter how unhappy they were. It was funny to see them going down these really fun slides all with sad/grumpy faces, kind of like pouting children who didn't get their way. it was a great lead into Bobby finally figuring out who God is and who he is too and what REALLY matters in life.

    This is a perfect family comedy your whole family will enjoy.

    What A Great Family Comedy!

    You've seen your typical dysfunctional families, but never before have you seen a more humorous one than Bobby's family. They are all reunited in the most unusual way as they gather to celebrate Bobby's 16th birthday and the reading of his parents will.

    In the latest movie on DVD from Provident Films, Bringing Up Bobby, takes you on a journey of Bobby, an almost 16 year old goth kid in high school who suddenly finds himself crushing on a girl name Liz. He will try anything to make her notice him, including changing into a preppy, dashing young man in hopes that Liz will notice him. Yet what Bobby seems to be missing is discovering who he is all along.

    James, his oldest brother has spent the last 12 years raising Bobby since the death of their parents and has been waiting on a death certificate so they can finally read his parents will. James is a Christian who tries to convince Bobby that he needs to find a relationship with Jesus instead of just accepting Jesus as a religion. James deals with communication via a "war table" dressed in costume because he cites from Deuteronomy that it's hard to stay mad at a man in costume.

    Andrea, is the only sister of the family and spends her life in search of fame, wealth and in bossing her husband Walter around and being at her beck and call. She only shows up for the reading of the will, but claims she is there strictly for Bobby's 16th birthday.

    Dennis is another brother that has fled to Russia to escape the anarchists that he feels are pursuing him in search of money that is owed. He is stuck in the 60's and after being deported from Russia finds himself back at the family home. He is hoping that there may be some money to pay off his debts. He doesn't have a relationship with God either.

    Trust me when I say, that this movie is a classic and while we were watching it, my teenager and her friends all stopped, sat down, laughed throughout the movie all the way to the end. No prompting required. There are some great classic lines in the movie and I think my all time favorite is when Goth Bobby declares to himself that "he doesn't need anyone, no one and then yells out loud for James to give him a ride."

    We laughed so much and this movie falls in line with such comedy greats like Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and Steve Carrell. So if you love their movies, you've got to see this one. The message is one for families and this is a Christian family classic, if I can get it back from my teens! I would rate this one a perfect 5 out of 5 stars and the trailer doesn't do it justice.
