[CLOSED] Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life DVD Review and {GIVEAWAY} #JeremyFink #Phase4Films

Congrats to Kathy McCrea!

Available on March 6, 2012

Based on the beloved children’s novel by Wendy Mass, Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life is a family-friendly adventure film starring Academy Award® winner Mira Sorvino and Emmy Award® winner Joe Pantoliano. It will be hitting store shelves on DVD, on demand and in digital release, on March 6th.

Synposis 
In the movie, 12-year-old Jeremy Fink receives a mysterious wooden box with the words “The Meaning of Life – for Jeremy Fink to open on his 13 birthday.” The box has four locks, but the keys are lost. In order to find out what secrets lie within the box, it’s up to Jeremy and his best friend Lizzy to search high and low throughout Manhattan for clues to the keys.

The adventure takes them from flea markets to science museums, and the duo meet an assortment of wacky and interesting characters along the way. Each encounter unlocks a clue, bringing them closer to finding out just what’s in the box – and ultimately the greatest secret of them all!

Review
We had a chance of previewing this movie and though my four year old didn’t enjoy it as much, I sure did. It’s quirky and fun and if I were younger (maybe pre-teen/early teens?), it would be one of my favorite movies. It has a great story line, and they do these collage-like scenes that are fun to watch. The characters are adventurous, the colors are bright and the writing is well done. The soundtrack is upbeat and the songs don’t seem to be mainstream (which I like because I think it expands their music repertoire). It reminds me of a  Napoleon Dynamite/Juno-type of movie – but with dialogue that is more appropriate for the younger crowd. It was also a treat to see Mira Sorvino (she plays the mom) in a movie… I haven’t seen her in ages.

All in all, if you have kids between ages 7 and 15, I’d say this would be a hit at home. Major bonus points to the mom that also buys the book!

Take a look at the trailer here:

The DVD is loaded with special features, including cast interviews, deleted scenes, bloopers, a limited edition embossed o-card with glitter spotting, and a downloadable audio reading by author Wendy Mass of the book’s first chapter.

Phase 4 Films will release JEREMY FINK AND THE MEANING OF LIFE on DVD at all major retailers for a $29.99 SRP in the U.S. and a $32.99 SRP in Canada. The film will also be available on demand and digital outlets.
