When you watch The Sound of Music, the first thing you are going to remember is the great songs the movie has. Some of the best known songs in the movie are, “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” and the classic “Do-Re-Mi.” However, this movie was just not about music, it also had a small story to go with it as well. The Sound of Music was about a lady who becomes the babysitter for a family. The dad is very hard on the kids, and gives the babysitter orders that she is to follow. However, she does not and ends up befriending the kids. In the end, she ends up pulling the family together and her and the dad get married. Of course, the babysitter is the lady who breaks off into most of the songs throughout the movie, so you are going to either love her or hate her. This is a movie that is a good one to see at some point in your life, after all it is a classic. Of course, you are going to really have to like musicals to be able to find the greatness of this film. Either way is should be in your DVD collection just because it is an American classic film.
People who are fans of classic movies or musicals are going to love The Sound of Music; however, there is not much here for anyone else. Either way you should at least see this movie once over the course of your life, and you will see why everyone loves the film so much. Many kids now a days see this movie in schools. Usually this is a movie that gets shown sometimes in music classes. I think that is a great idea because I think kids today need to see the movies from the past that made movies today so great. The classic movies are the films that set the stage for all movie to follow them. If you do not go back and watch these older movies like The Sound of Music, you can never really love the newer films and Broadway plays. Watching older movies are a great way to spend time as a family and to see a little piece of history. Although, not all kids are going to want to watch this movie; if they give it a chance they will walk away learning something that they never knew. This is a great film and is worth buying.
