Since I really love the American Girls Collection (sorry, I know it’s Historical Characters, but I like calling it the AGC), and their movies, I thought that each Saturday, I would write a review for one of their movies. This week, I’m starting with their very first movie.
“Samantha: An American Girl Holiday” is a very inspirational (and very cute!) movie. I recently got the Special Edition release of the DVD, and I’m so glad that I purchased that movie, because now, it’s one of my favourite movies (I just wish that Samantha and Nellie’s collections were still available…because I think that their outfits would look SO CUTE on my dolls). Now, for the things that I liked and didn’t like about this movie:
What I liked:
• The moral: Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. It’s not how a person looks on the outside, but what’s inside that counts.
• When Nellie’s little sister talked for the first time: I don’t know the full story here, but I guess Jenny (Nellie’s little sister) was really shy, because she didn’t talk at all in the movie, except for in the final scene.
What I Didn’t LIke:
• Some of the scenes: Viewers, please note that if you’re planning on watching this with younger siblings (if you have any), some scenes in this very awesome movie might scare them. (WANING: GIVEAWAY ALERT! IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THIS MOVIE, DON’T LOOK AT THIS FOLLOWING SENTENCE!) There’s a part where a boy who worked in a factory hurt his finger on a sewing machine, and even I thought that was sad and/or scary (I sew outfits for my 3 American Girl dolls, so that part scared me).
