DVD Review: “Samantha: An American Girl Holiday”

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).

    Today, I’m gonna help my parents set up the barn for the new llamas. I saw the pictures of them online, and they are SO CUTE!!!!!

  2. Anna-Marie says

    The llamas are very cute! There are 2 of them (1 boy, 1 girl), the girl is 7 months old (her name is Juliette), and the boy is 1 year old (his name is Benny).

    I also got 2 horses. There’s a 7 YEAR old mare (her name is Cherry), and she came with her 1 month old filly (her name is Sparkle)

    What was the totally boring school play about?

    It was these mini skits that we had 9th graders from MSS do and they forgot their lines and sang the wrong song and it was a total trainwreck PLUS to make it worse, it was in confusing french! (French people talk so fast!)

    Hi. I’m Fluffy, one of Anna-Marie’s cats! I love my food, my friend, who’s name is Smoky aka Little One, and, of course, I also love Anna-Marie. I am a grey-and-white cat and I am SOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!
