The Hills Are Alive...

Last night I watched The Sound of Music with the kids. It was the first time M & B had seen it, and I only got M to watch by promising him there would be Nazis with guns :-)

B loved it, and wants to watch it again. M admitted that it was okay (high praise from an 11-year-old boy), although he kept rolling his eyes whenever people burst into song at inappropriate moments. He does have a point--the gazebo scene where Captain von Trapp and Maria sing "Something Good" is especially bad. I just finished watching the interview with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer on the 40th-anniversary DVD, and it turns out they too had a hard time controlling their laughter in that scene.

Next on the list: The King and I.
