5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Family-Oriented Series
I watched "Little Men" for 2 years on PAX TV when it originally aired and fell in love with this delightful, heartwarming family drama. Safe for the entire family to enjoy, "Little Men" will warm your heart with valuable lessons, charming anectdotes, and a house of boys and girls tumbling through life's many adventures.

In addition to the rambunctions children of the series, is the burgeoning relationship between Jo Bhaer and the new caretaker of Plumfield, Nick Riley. After the unexpected death of her husband Fritz, (which may alarm many L.M. Alcott fans) Jo finds herself torn between her past and her future. The addition of Nick Riley to the story-line, though a major change in the original plot of the novel, is pivotal to the series. He adds the charm, roughness, and tenderness of a man wrestling with his own past as he quickly falls in love with a woman of strength and courage unlike any he has ever known.

Anyone who purchases this series on DVD (the first 2 include the first 4 episodes) will undoubtedly enjoy it....

5-0 out of 5 stars A treasure for the whole family
This series was based upon the classic Louisa May Alcott book "Little Men". Although it does move away from the book in certain ways, the series still brings the charm of Alcott's novel to the small screen. The scripts are well written, the acting superb, and the stories are timeless. This DVD, containing the first 4 episodes of the series, will be something to treasure and which can be shared with children and adults alike for many years to come.

3-0 out of 5 stars I loved the book but the movie......
They killed off Joe's husband so she could have a romance? Oh sure no problem.NOT! Also I missed Meg's kids being in the story.Oh yeah and Joe's other son. The acting wasnt the best either. If you are looking for a movie that will bring the book you read to life do not count on this movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Release That Leaves You Wanting More
I can't say enough about this series that unfortunately ran for only 2 seasons. I recently bought the two DVD set of the first 4 episodes, and the picture & sound quality are excellent. Sorry, but I'm dying to say this - Spencer Rochfort's (Nick) eyes are incredible! This series is well acted with good stories appropriate for the whole family. Although it is an extention of LM Alcott's work and includes invented characters such as Nick, the romantic interest for Jo, it seems realistic and in keeping with the flavour that Miss Alcott was trying to portray through her writings. The romance between them is very sweet and is in no way "over the top". It isn't one of those productions that leaves purists such as myself feeling betrayed by the presentation of the story or characters, and now I wouldn't want to be without those new characters! My favourite actors are Trevor Blumas who plays Nat and Robin Dunne as Franz Bhaer. The DVD includes bios of some of the characters and also there are extra features for those who have a DVD-ROM. It is interesting to note that one of the executive producers, Carl Binder, (who also produced Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman for 3 years), is Canadian as well as most of the actors/actresses. It seems to be a joint production between Canada and the United States. It is very much in the flavour of other outstanding Canadian productions such as Road to Avonlea by Sullivan Entertainment. Those of you who like those shows will definitely like this as well. I was also amazed when reading the bios, how much the teenagers have in common with one another in real life. They are a very athletic and musical group of individuals. Together they made an excellent team in this outstanding family show. My biggest disappointment of course is that there are not more episodes available on DVD. I'm presently ordering copies of this release for my friends. I am hoping that since this DVD was just released last year (2003) there is still a chance that they will release the rest. I hope the producers are reading this!! Also it would be good if any future releases were closed captioned or subtitled for the hard of hearing, as these were not included in this edition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Family Entertainment at it's Best
I agree with the other reviews. This is a great family series. I happened across it on PAX before I received my Dish network. I was only able to get poor reception and it was on the weekends so I rarely was able to see it. When I came across the DVD, I couldn't wait to order it. I then shared it with other family members and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. From the youngest to the oldest, brothers, sisters, cousins, nephews, neices they all wanted to get the DVD and are begging for more.

The only thing that could be better than this DVD is the release of the whole series on DVD. Hurry, the sooner, the better. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie for kids and family
This movie is based on the book of the same name which I have not read, so I can't compare it to the book. However, seeing the movie makes me want to recommend the book to children. Caddie Woodlawn is a tomboy in the pioneer days of Wisconsin. Her lively spirit, and her red hair and pigtails remind me of Pippi Longstocking, though they don't stick out at the sides like Pippi's do, and Caddie is a "real" person, not a fantasy.

When Caddie's "proper" Boston cousin, Annabelle, comes to stay with the family, Caddie resists her mother's instructions to follow Annabell's example in etiquette and manners, and instead plays fairly harmless jokes on her. But Caddie really does have a heart of gold and a sense of justice. She's appalled at the treatment of her neighbors toward two half-breed children in the community, and secretly buys them shoes. Along with her father, she insists on keeping peace with the nearby Dakota Indians.

Caddie must deal with such emotional and common childhood issues as the loss of her dog, being bullied, jealousy over her brother's love interest, and sticking up for what she believes is right. At the expense of being punished or disapproved, she does the right thing, and in the end, she is the one who saves the community from a violent confrontation with the Dakotas.

I think the acting was very well done, with a wide variety of characterization and emotions. It's a wonderful movie for kids and family.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good!
It was a pretty good movie that we watched at school because we were learning about indians and pioneers. It's a very long movie, and gets boring at times, but they always do something to liven it up!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great story-not the best acting.
I remember when my third grade teacher introduced the book to my class by reading it to us. I loved it then and I love it now. I recently saw the video at our library so I checked it out for my 7 year old grand-daughter and she loved it as well, and wanted to share it with her 2nd grade class. She is also interested in folk heroes and pioneers, so this little girl who was friends with Indians intrigued her. Now we're looking for the video for her video library.

5-0 out of 5 stars The exciting true story of a courageous young pioneer girl.
Caddie Woodlawn starring Emily Schulman is based upon Carol Ryrie Brink's JOHN NEWBERRY MEDAL Award Winning book "Caddie Woodlawn." Brink's book chronicles the real adventures of her grandmother (Caddie) as a twelve year old tomboy growing up in Wisconsin in the mid-1800s. With her brothers Tom and Warren, Caddie's wild ways upset her refined Bostonian mother -- Caddie would rather swim across the river to visit her friend Indian John than stay at home with her sisters and learn to knit. Caddie is the apple of her father's eye -- but even he knows that she must grow up and learn to be a woman. Mrs. Woodlawn invites her cousin Annabelle from Boston to teach Caddie how to be refined -- the visit turns hilariously disastrous when Caddie and her brothers try to teach Annabelle the ways of Wisconsin -- Annabelle is tossed from a mare, their sheep eat every single one of the "eight and eighty buttons" on her dress -- and she attempts a somersault -- little does she know that they've stuck an egg down her dress..... Despite Caddie's childish pranks -- the novel is truly inspiring as Caddie must stand up to an entire town of men to save the Indian tribe across the river from an erroneous ambush. The men of the town are convinced that a murdered pioneer family in a nearby town is the work of Indian John and his tribesman -- as the entire town gathers at the Woodlawn house (terrified as they await a massacre by the Indians) a group of vigilantes (Mr. Woodlawn NOT included) plots a surprise ambush -- which Caddie overhears in the barn. She knows that the Indians are friendly -- but she is the only person who can avert a tragedy. As she secretly prepares to make the dangerous journey to the Indian Camp her tattletale Cousin Annabelle catches her -- but agrees to keep her secret. Finally Caddie courageously rides back to her house with Indian John -- where after several tense moments -- the misunderstanding is revealed.

****If you are looking for a true story of the triumph of goodness and the incredible strength of the human spirit -- embodied in one young girl, I highly recommend the novel "Caddie Woodlawn" by CAROL RYRIE BRINK -- this movie version is entertaining and very recommendable-- but the drama, hilarity and truth in Caddie Woodlawn's story can best be found in the award-winning novel itself!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars A first rate thriller
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie about a widow who re-gains her ability to love again -but soon is threatened by a mysterious woman who threatens to kill her. You don't find out who the woman is until the end of the movie and -you're in for a big surprise when you do. Nastassja Kinski plays the protagonist with very believable pain and sorrow for the loss of her first husband, and goes out to investigate on her own -to find out who this woman is. The story leads you through twists and turns, and of course-you think you have it pinned down, but you don't. The other actors are not very recognizable but are very well-rounded and not cardboard-like. I give this movie 5 stars-for its beautiful night-time shots of Manhattan-and sleek saxaphone soundtrack. Rent it or by it today! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Geezer Central!
This is a warning to whoever wants to buy this movie. DON'T! You are probably making the same mistake I did when I rented this. You probably are a Corey Haim fan and think that he's the star. Well, he isn't. This movie is just about a couple of geezers that are trying to solve a nursing home scam. Corey Haim just has a little part, I think he's like old man's grandson. Even if you don't like Corey Haim, do yourself a favour and don't buy this. It's boring, long, the storyline is stupid and it was made in Canada(that about says it all). I mean I'm Canadian but lets face it, Canadian-made things suck! Well that's about all I can say so, once again, DON'T BUY THIS MOVIE! ... Read more
