This review is from: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (DVD) I ordered this movie because I so enjoyed Uncle Remus' wonderful stories in Song of the South as a kid; and I loved the wonderful songs to go with those stories. So, I was a bit disappointed that this did not include any of those songs or any similarity to the old Disney Brer Rabbit stories. That being said, it is a fun, entertaining DVD. I have a 5 year old and she has really enjoyed it. It is told in small stories so it can be watched in one sitting or in little bits and pieces which is great for us. There a few good lessons in it but mostly it is just entertaining. Children aren't going to learn any deep invaluable lessons, but they also are not going to pick up any sassy, argumentative behavior from it either. No rude humor but no sappy overly goody-two-shoed characters either. I love the soulful spunkiness of Brer Rabbit and his positive outlook towards adversity. It is not complex but it is clever. Just clean fun. It is a little different in a refreshing way from the usual animated entertainment for children. I high recommend especially since I noticed it was on sale!
This review is from: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (DVD) I did not receive my product, through no fault of the seller. I gave this review 4 stars because the seller was very helpful, and there was no delay in getting my refund.
The film features many of today's notable Black entertainers. My girls(4 & 7 y.o.) are loving it. It is a great way to keep these traditionalstories alive. It is also a good way to teach children aboutcontrasting mediums (film vs. writing). You may be also get them toread the stories in various editions. The songs are great! They too arepart of the Black cultural traditions. The film does a good job ofpresenting both sides of morality, that someone can do good and badthings. I am thoroughly enjoying myself watching the film with mychildren. It retells the stories I know plus many I don't. Great forthe whole family.
This is a very good movie. Don't expect to see Uncle Remus either. He ain't here. I'm as nostalgic as anyone, but I don't live in the past. This is not a "Gone with the Wind" throwback with happy Negroes caring for the needs of White folks (nothing wrong with loving each other but this is 2009, those "Driving Miss Daisy" images should be put to rest. That being said this is agreat family movie. The voice characterizations are wonderful and the animation is very good. This movie is funny, witty, and intelligent. Brer Rabbit is still Brer Rabbit and he gets taught some well deserved lessons along the way.One review said this was a vain attempt to make a "POLITICALLY CORRECT" version of an old "classic." I doubt the writers even had that in mind. This is just a good, funny cartoon with excellent African-American voice characterizations. Ignore the ignorant and negative reviews. I highly reccomend this movie.
While this movie may not be the same as Disney's classic "Song Of TheSouth", this direct-to-video film from Universal Studios is abeautifully animated, clean, wholesome, entertaining family film. Thismovie is filled with very memorable characters, plenty of adventure, alot of captivating stories, great moral lessons, and superb animation.This film also has a lot of clean humor without any of the sexualinnuendo, lame puns, or gross-out humor that's found in many animatedT.V. shows and films nowadays. Even though this film is aimed at smallchildren, you can enjoy this movie whether you're 4 or 40, and it'sgreat for the whole family to watch together (or by yourself). On ascale of 1 to 10, I give this film a 10 all the way! You will not bedisappointed. (Hopefully Universal will decide to make a whole seriesof movies.)
I grew up listening to Br'er Rabbit Tales. For those who think that Br'er Rabbit is inseparable from Uncle Remus, Uncle Remus was invented as a way to tell the stories when it was transcribed by a White Atlantan journalist who heard the tales from Black sharecroppers on a plantantion. Uncle Remus is not essential to the Br'er Rabbit tales, which are the result of African American and Native American oral traditions, and are told just fine without him there. This DVD does a fine job of giving us a good many Br'er Rabbit stories. I thought it was a cute retelling, nice animation, and a good range of voices from plenty of African American actors. My kids enjoyed watching it, and I got to share a bit of what I grew up hearing at the many story festivals I attended as a little girl. For those who are disappointed that this isn't Song of the South, give Br'er Rabbit a chance in a movie that actually focuses on Br'er Rabbit... unless it wasn't Br'er Rabbit that interested you in the first place...
It is exactly what it is a DVD of THE ADVENTURES OF BRER RABBIT every house with little ones should have a copy.
This review is from: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (DVD) GRAND CHILDREN LOVED IT,. I FOUND IT TO BE A LITTLE TOO SARCASTIC ON THE RABBITS PART AND ANIMATION ON A FAIR TO OK LEVEL THE COVER SHOWS THIS ANIMATION I BOUGHT IT BECAUSE IT WAS BASED ON SOME OLD STORIES .. I FOUND THE SCRIPT PREDICTABLE, AND SOMEWHAT DULL, BUT OK IN GENERAL..
This review is from: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (DVD) I bought this for my grandchildren to show them what I watched when I was their age. Saturday morning was a big TV day.
This review is from: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (DVD) As a kid I remember the adventures of Ber rabbit as narrated by Uncle Remus and I inadvertantly thought this was it. I'll keep looking as enjoyed them when I was young and would like my grandchildren to see them also.
This review is from: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (DVD) This is a really cute cartoon video. My grand daughter loves watching the antics of Brer Rabbit and all his friends. I am so glad we found this copy. Thanks

This review is from: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (DVD) Cute. Brought up to date. And far less controversy than the Song of the South created. But as cute as it is, Brer Rabbit is still the Brer Rabbit we knew and loved in Song of the South. It will be great when Disney wakes up and releases that movie again.
Clever writing and character designs, excellent voice work, andsurprisingly good animation for a straight-to-video release. I've readthe original Uncle Remus stories to my son (age 5), as well as other"rabbit" stories from Caribbean and Gullah traditions, and West AfricanAnansi stories. Kids love tricksters, and this is a nice way tointroduce some of the classic stories. No, it isn't "Song of the South" (a good thing or a bad thing,depending on which way you look at it--they did a nice job with thesongs in this, though), and (spoiler alert!). . . . . . I could have done without the "Brer Rabbit sees the error of hisways and becomes a good friend" piece of the arc, but wrapping up witha faithful and well-paced treatment of the best-known Brer Rabbit talerescues it. The only way you'll do better on currently-available videois to comb through the back catalog of Weston Woods/Scholastic filmsfor the shorts based on picture-book retellings of individual stories.And that could take a while.
In light of all the controversy surrounding Disney's "Song of the South", this version of Uncle Remus tales only deepens the controversy. As far as pleasing legal experts who get tense around civil rights issues, this movie is tremendous - as far as artistic expression, it's plain awful. As one reviewer noticed, the animation is decent; but the story and character development are horrendous - to plop a child in front of this garbage would be detrimental to their developmental growth. On the other hand you have Disney's work of art locked up somewhere because it hints at the days of Southern utopia between Master and Servant. I understand this can be offensive, but this was not the aim of the Disney company, only an inevitable subtlety that must be conveyed in order to tell the story. Someone who would be convinced of bringing back the "glory days of the south" after watching this movie clearly missed the point of the film - and probably needs psychologcial evaluation.Finally I want to point out that this film's "decent animation" was a product of some Asian country. That is, this culturally American film could not be animated by it's countrymen because of the expense. So the guys at Universal used the money that should have been put into production to pay for the name recognition of the voice "talents". I only hope this isn't evidence of where art is headed in this country.
well worth the $[...] I gave for it @ Wally World; my HD DVD & Blu gay players make this film the closest to HD of any DVD in my collection!!!it's a reasonable substitute for Song of the South...while it's NOT the real thing, it'll do until Disney releases SotS on Blu gay; or lets their copyright expire & I release it on Blu ray!
Cute adaption of the stories I remember my mother reading me. Thestories remain true to memory, but the dialect was absent which kind ofruined it a little bit for me. DVD quality was excellent. Both mychildren ages 4 and 14 both had their attentions held on the screen.The colorful scenes held the young ones and Brer rabbit's tricks keptthe older kids watching for whats next. The extra DVD games were alittle difficult for the younger children but fun for the older set. Afun story to watch with the kids. I just felt it was missing somethingI couldn't quite put my finger on. I recommend seeing this just nothighly. A good rental!
Having a copy of "Song of the South" which this is the politicallycorrect replacement for, I was truly disappointed with this. "Song ofthe South" is not that great a movie by todays technical standards, butin its day it was revolutionary in the merging of animation and realactors. The Adventures of Brer Rabbit is nothing but modern politicallycorrect trash. The Adventures of Brer Rabbit, which some people mayfind offensive to their own spiritual belief systems today, lacks anybasis in the folk tales of a group of Americans that was part of ourheritage. Those folk tales were the story of Brer Rabbit, not thispolitically correct enhanced trash.That story (Song of the South) is a part of our history, for better orworse. Slavery, as well as the way the Black actors of Song of theSouth were treated in Atlanta at the time of Oscar Awards was terriblebeyond belief. Anyone today who believes singing happy slaves were away of life in the old south is an idiot. But America is not the onlynation with a history of slavery. Most nations of the world have thatpractice in their history, some still do today. Stop beating ourselvesup over it, and pretending it never existed. The history of the native American people is an even greater horrorstory. Some of it caused intentionally by Europeon immigrants to theAmericas. Some of it just twists of fate that befell them in thecollision of 2 cultures. But what a horror story that is. Films weren't always based in total reality back when Song of the Southwas made, neither are they today. But the rewriting of our historicalmake believe films smacks of another film/story "1984".Don't tease the people with this stuff, re-release the original moviewhere Brer Rabbit was made a star "Song of the South".
