The kids and I recently watched Beethoven’s Treasure Tail on Blu-ray. Universal Studios Home Entertainment sent it to me for review on my dad blog. In the past, there have been a bunch of Beethoven movies. My kids and I have not seen any of the previous films. As far as I can tell, Beethoven’s Treasure Tail is a stand-alone movie. You don’t need to see any of the other films to enjoy the latest Beethoven movie, which we did enjoy. It’s humorous and is a decent family film. Beethoven’s Treasure Tail is available now on DVD and Blu-ray. Continue reading to learn five things about the family movie.
The kids and I went to Disney on Ice on Sunday at the Moda Center. It’s the first time we’ve been to a Disney on Ice show. It was awesome and we had a fun time. The theme of the show was Let’s Celebrate! It was a wonderful celebration that featured great tunes and a million and one Disney characters. OK, that was a little exaggeration, but you get the picture.
Halloween is just around the corner. If you’re looking for a scary movie to watch this weekend, consider seeing The Blair Witch Project, Cabin in the Woods, Exists, Cabin Fever and The Descent.

My youngest daughter and I recently watched some episodes of Pee-wee’s Playhouse Seasons 1 & 2 DVD set. We’re both fans of the Pee-wee movies. In Pee-wee’s Playhouse, Paul Reubens’s wacky persona is the same as the character in the movies. The humor is essentially the same (very sophomoric). But unlike the films, the TV shows jump from one gag to the next without any real purpose. The shows are still funny like the Pee-wee movies, but there isn’t really a story for you to follow along because Pee-wee’s Playhouse is a show, not a movie. Overall, I think the series is worth watching if you’re a kid or a big fan of the Pee-wee movies. Just keep in mind the target audience is kids. Pee-wee’s Playhouse: Seasons 1 & 2 (Shout! Factory) is available now on DVD.
The kids and I watched Mr. Peabody and Sherman over the weekend. We actually saw this film at the theater when it came out earlier in the year. It was funny then and seems to be even funnier now. I kid you not. My children laughed louder and more often the second time around. Mr. Peabody and Sherman (DreamWorks Animation and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment) is available now on DVD and Blu-ray. Continue reading to learn seven things about the movie.
Has anyone seen The Devil’s Hand yet? The movie was released on iTunes, VOD and in select theaters recently. The film is about six girls born on the same day. One of the girls will eventually become the Devil’s Hand. The film stars Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter), Rufus Sewell (Dark City), and Adelaide Kane (The CW’s Reign). If you have not see the Devil’s Hand yet, now’s your chance. Thanks to Roadside Attractions, I’m giving away a $15 iTunes giftcard to a reader of my dad blog.
We had a Mr. Peabody and Sherman Italian Renaissance Party at our house last night. The kids had a great time making crafts based on the movie, which was released on DVD and Blu-ray earlier in the week. We tried out several of the arts and crafts ideas listed in a previous blog post. The one my kids loved the most was the model airplane made with clothes pins and popsicle sticks. You can download the Mr. Peabody and Sherman activity sheets here. After the party, the children and I watched Mr. Peabody and Sherman. The kids thought it was hilarious.
I recently placed an order with Schwan’s Home Service. The company is essentially an online grocery store. In my case, I ordered a bunch of their special recipe pizzas. They were delicious and my evil kids ate most of them when I was busy working outside. Schwan’s isn’t limited to just frozen pizzas. Dads and moms can also order fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, pasta, side dishes, snacks, appetizers, desserts, breakfast items and even ice cream. That’s right. You can have ice cream delivered right to your door. I’m sure kids everywhere love that feature.
