Hermie And Friends DVD Review Who's In Charge Anyway?

We watch a lot of Max Lucado's Hermie and Friends movies from the library. I thought I was going to be reviewing a book but missed those three little letters "dvd" in the description. Click to see: Who is in Charge Anyway? You tube This movie was about a pitiful-looking little flea trying to find his worth in the world. The movie gives movie-shorts type examples of his other bug friends' struggles to find their worth also. Throughout the movie, the voice of God reminds each character that he's in charge, he doesn't make mistakes, and he has a purpose for each one of them. The graphics on this dvd were good, but not as grabbing as the usual Pixar cartoon. The message was great and could be used in a situation to lift up a young child who may feel bad about his or her own personality quirks. There were some funny scenes, including bugs freaking out on a boat and a scene where a praying mantis is denying that he has a bug in his mouth trying to escape. I enjoyed those scenes. The overall effect of the movie was distracting though. It skipped around so much that it was easy to forget that the main story was about a flea. Even my 5 year old son commented that it was too many little stories and he couldn't remember the flea. (he's a budding reviewer). I asked if he would watch the movie again on a different day and he said, "yes". So if I had to rate this DVD  on a 5 * scale I'd give it a *** 3 star.  This dvd was provided to me by Booksneeze, who in no way influenced my review. Opinions are entirely my own.


  1. Oh! I've never heard of Hermie and Friends before. I'll have to check them out. :-)

  2. Thanks for your review. We like the Hermie books.
