Gotta Love Aunt Pearl: The Reef Blu-ray and DVD Review

How we ever survived the days of no DVD player in the car escapes me.  I hope that doesn’t sound silly, but it’s true.   While I don’t let the kids use it for short trips, it’s become a lifesaver on long ones!  Recently we took a 3- hour car ride for a mini-vacation and I brought along the newly released Blu-Ray and DVD combo of The Reef.

The Reef

The Reef is an animated film by Vivendi Entertainment and stars the vocal talents of Freddie Prinze, Jr., Evan Rachel Wood, Donal Logue, Fran Drescher, John Rhys-Davies, Andy Dick, and Rob Schneider.  With this massive amount of talent behind it, The Reef is sure to be one of your family’s favorites.  The movie is a heart warming and feel-good story that will captivate your children.  Adorable Pi the fish (Freddie Prinze Jr), has to grow up sooner than expected when he looses his parents to an accident with a fishing net.  Helped out by a family of porpoises, he travels with them to the reef where his enormously funny Aunt Pearl (Fran Drescher) lives. Life in The Reef gets much better when Pi meets the girl of his dreams….the beautiful Cordelia (Evan Rachel Wood).  All is well for a bit until his happiness is cut short by Troy’s arrival, a huge Tiger shark, who also  has grand ideas set on winning over Cordelia.

My kids loved this movie and laughed out loud at several different scenes.  They loved Aunt Pearl the best and for the next few days were repeating some of the lines in the movie that made them laugh.  It made me smile too, as the 3 hour car trip was a breeze!  I am so glad we have added The Reef to our collection!

The Reef was released on March 8, 2011 and is available at Amazon and in stores near you!

    Haven’t seen this on trailers yet. But thanks for sharing. Pretty sure, my nephews would love this 🙂

  2. Sounds like a good movie…gotta get a DVD player in the SUV when my son gets a little older. Seems like it would be a great way to take longer trips.
