The Boys: The Sherman Brothers Story

Rating: A-I (Not rated)

NEW YORK (CNS) — The following is a capsule review of a movie recently reviewed by the Office for Film & Broadcasting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Poignant biography of Walt Disney Studios’ most famous songwriter team — Richard Sherman and Robert Sherman — whose cheery songs for such films as “Mary Poppins” and “The Jungle Book” belied a fractious personal relationship.

Directed by their sons, Jeffrey C. Sherman and Gregory V. Sherman, the well-crafted documentary (unobjectionable though probably not for the kiddies) — which includes interviews with Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury and other luminaries, as well as friends and family members — attempts to trace the roots of the conflict between these two disparate personalities, and also illuminates the mutual respect and love beneath the strained surface.

The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I — general patronage. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
