WAVEmomAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Our Culture Needs ThisJune 19, 2015WAVEmomAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I am saddened to see so many negative reviews for this excellent movie. I think our culture today really needs more movies like this. Great lessons in a life well lived with priorities in order. Demonstrates the importance of family and our loved ones around us. Gentle, and humorous, look into the life of one family, the memories they made together, and how they bonded. The father character is a great role model for men- and for women- of loving but firm parenting. This movie sets forth a vision all parents would do well to grab a hold of. One reviewer mentioned that we all need Jesus and the movie says otherwise. I'm not sure where that observation comes from, as the movie does not speak about Jesus. I don't see this movie as meant to be a Gospel tract, but as one illustrating family life. I believe even Christians today need this; because we come to Christ does not mean we automatically have a healthy vision for our families, and this movie provides such a vision. I'm not sure if it is has any links to the LDS community or not, but I don't think this matters as much as people try to make it out to seem. How many excellent movies that have changed our worldviews were put out by atheists? What matters, is that the movie does not bring such specific beliefs into the story, if it was indeed put out by LDS community, which it doesn't. Overall, excellent movie of which I believe our current society needs more of.
Bobbie3030Oklahoma CityAge: 55-65Gender: Female1 Stars Out Of 5One Scene NOT for ChildrenJanuary 14, 2015Bobbie3030Oklahoma CityAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1There is a scene where a child gets runned over by a car. You can see the car going up and down and he gets runned over TWICE. The scene shows the child laying on the floor and his sibling (2 brothers) get in the car and the brother driver, runs his brother over accidentally. I was very upset by seeing this terrible part and I know children would be too. Just that one part spoiled the entire movie for me! My son (22) said the movie makers; shouldn't have put that scene in the movie.

Jeannie DonaldsonStatesboro, GAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Don't Miss This One!!!June 27, 2013Jeannie DonaldsonStatesboro, GAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A fabulous story! After we finished watching it, we found that it was a true story. This, to me, is what family is all about... the way it used to be... the way we need it to be today. I highly recommend this DVD for family members of all ages.
At times I felt the dad was a little TOO strict, but all in all, I'd rather err in that direction, than go the way of the world today where children have an attitude of entitlement early on. We need more responsible members of society, and this is the only way that will happen.
Q: Does the movie The Measure of a Man, have LDS roots? I live in Utah and I'm not Mormon. I just watched the trailer and it caught my attention that when they were praying together, they crossed their arms in front of their body, instead of holding hands or just bowing their heads with their own hands clasped together. I know this may seem very trivial, but when you are a Christian living in Utah, it's a little disturbing. The Mormons always pray with their arms crossed in front, like I saw in the trailer.
Athough the writer and directors of this movie do come from an LDS background, the movie does not present the characters as coming from the Mormon faith.
