Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An irresistible documentary about the inexhaustible sibling songwriting duo Richard and Robert Sherman.
Fresh: A touching and illuminating documentary about the songwriting duo.
Fresh: Engaging docu draws on plentiful archival footage and A-list interviewees, and should lure dedicated nostalgists.
Fresh: The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story is, above all, a loving salute from sons to their accomplished fathers.
This film did not get the attention it deserved during it's brief theatrical run. A truly heartwarming, compelling documentary about two brilliant songwriters and their complicated relationship. Enjoy it!
They've touched the world
Robert & Richard Sherman,have changed and touched the lives of Thousands upon Thousands of people.
I can't describe what I feel,all I can say is they did what has now been lost.
They made music,that links memories,that when heard,take you back to when anything was possible and the world seemed to be a better place.
I love them both,and they have greatly touched my life. My childhood was with the Sherman Brothers,Almost everyday I would watch a Disney movie,and then throught the week sing there songs, I am 20 years old now,and still find myself whistling or singing one of there masterpieces. They've inspired me to become a Director.
I can only hope,and I know I will never even come close, to make movies with songs or scores that will be played for generations on down. That will be remembered forever.
I beleive They were the only ones who could.
My hope is that there will be once again, entertainment,with the great memorable stories and music,as there once was.
This picture is wonderful,it is a great story of the Sherman's lives.
It was done well,and I hope everyone gets a oppurtunity to see it.
It's a swell picture, I'm extremely glad it was made.
So that's who wrote those songs
If you like music or film history then you'll love this movie. If you like Disney 60's movie music then you'll probably like it too although you may not want to give it 5 stars like I did.
