CINEMA: Glenwood Arts, Overland Park, KS
AUDITORIUM: 1
PRESENTATION: Classic slope basement tunnel with mystery meat digital
PRESENTATION PROBLEMS: None [Cool]
RATING: Three stars (out of four)

THE PLOT: A guy really loves children...but in a good way. Wackiness ensues.

When I posted my star rating on social media, I immediately was asked by different people "Why not four stars? What's wrong with it?"

Nothing. Nothing at all. It's a fine documentary about an extraordinary man. It's just not an extraordinary documentary. It could have aired on PBS without a theatrical run.

But the reaction is a testament to how the memory of Fred Rogers is treasured. He loved the world almost unconditionally. And the world still loves him back.

We never had Mr. Rogers here when I was a kid. We had Mr. Dressup instead.

The pictures in that article are in colour but I remember it being just black and white.

Have you seen the PBS documentary "It's You I Like" that aired back in March? I hear this new film doesn't cover anything that wasn't in the PBS one. Having seen the PBS one, I'm hard pressed to make an effort to see this one that's in theaters.

Having grown up in a border market, with access to CBC, I’m familiar with Mr. Dressup and can confirm it was in color well into its run (it was produced until 1996).
