Glowing Nose Productions & Provident Films Present- “Bringing Up Bobby”
A Different Kind of Comedy About Being Kind of Different
When 20-something filmmaking brothers Chris and Nick Staron were told it’s impossible to make a Christian comedy, they laughed … and then got to work. Bringing Up Bobby is the result, and the madcap antics of the entire Wyler family will convince you that the Staron Bros. have created comedic dynamite!
Destined to be a favorite of families and youth groups, Bringing Up Bobby is a quirky exploration of what it means to live out your faith … and to find humor in whatever comes your way!
The first words I think of when I think of this movie are, “Funny, weird, quirky”. It has a sort of “Napoleon Dynamite” feel but with a Christian message.
“Bringing Up Bobby” has us facing the question of “what is our identity?”. Is it like Bobby’s best friend Eric; goth, falling into a depression because of his family life? Or maybe Bobby’s older sister who is greedy and only cares about appearances? We could look at Bobby’s older brother Dennis, who looks toward drugs for his happiness. And we have Bobby, who tries to please everyone and is frustrated when he just can’t win anyway he is.
Through the reading of Bobby’s parents will we see everyone’s true colors and what is important to them. Bobby’s other older brother, James, the brother who is raising him, challenges Bobby to find his true self and to search in the Bible for his answer.
Although the movie doesn’t end like most movies do “all happy and everything is perfect” you leave the movie feeling at peace. You realize the important things in life and that in order to find your true identity in life you first need to find Jesus.
I totally LOVED this movie. I couldn’t stop laughing through out the whole thing. The filming is very well done and the actors in it were perfect for their parts. My favorite scene is when the family goes to an indoor water park to celebrate Bobby’s 16th birthday. It was right after the reading of the will and no one was happy with the outcome or each other but they still wanted to be together as a family, no matter how unhappy they were. It was funny to see them going down these really fun slides all with sad/grumpy faces, kind of like pouting children who didn’t get their way. it was a great lead into Bobby finally figuring out who God is and who he is too and what REALLY matters in life.
This is a perfect family comedy your whole family will enjoy.
