Phase 4 Films Smitty, Freddy Frogface, & DonkeyX

We got three movies from Phase 4 Films for the month of July, "yesterday." We began watching last night and again this morning. All three films can be found at Redbox locations, Walmart, Target, &

Smitty- I really enjoyed Smitty, a good life lesson movie about learning from mistakes, family,true heart & soul healthy movie. A kid that finds his way into trouble gets sent to live with his grandpa that has not been a part of his life for 13 years. Self centered until a little dog teaches him a lesson about love. My children would watch it here and there but, a little to mature for their ages of 3 & 5. Like I said, "I really enjoyed it."

CAST: Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Mimic), Peter Fonda (Easy Rider, 3:10 to Yuma, Ghost Rider), Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman, Why Did I Get Married Too?), Jason London (Dazed and Confused, Out Cold)
DonkeyX- A little donkey seeking acceptance from Nobel Steeds and a knight competing in a jousting tournament compete showing everyone their strengthens and team work. This one kept losing the kids, it didn't really hold their attention. The story line seems a little too complicated & strong worded for my 3 & 5 year old.

CAST: Steve Salazar , James Phillips , Joe Lewis

Freddy Frogface- Victor and his dog "Sausage" are having to deal with a bully, Freddy Frog Face. It's really gross how he got that nickname. Trying to get to the circus for a chance to perform in a talent show with sausage, Victor and his friend have to be clever and dress up. Victor likes to trick Freddy too, but who will win in the end?

CAST: Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Angels and Demons, The Candidate), Thure Lindhardt (Into the Wild, Angels and Demons)

Disclosure: Sponsor sent films and some snacks for us to give our honest feed back on these films. No other compensation was received.
