The Naked Brother’s Band

Standard

Review by Whymrhymer

Even if you’re an old dude like me (or an old dudette) and even if you’re not that old but all your kids have escaped the nest, you really should catch some of the shows on Nickelodeon or one of the other channels that feature kids . . . it helps you reconnect with that kid inside of you (and he or she IS there) and besides, kids having fun are always a joy to watch.

The title of this post “The Naked Brother’s Band” is a new series on Nickelodeon and also the title of a slightly older movie put together by Polly Draper. Polly Draper is actually the stepmother of Nat and Alex Wolff the “original” Naked Brothers. Nat was 7 years old and Alex was 4 when the movie was made; guaranteed, they will just steal your heart and if they don’t make you smile you might not have a heart to loose.

The movie (which they call a “mockumentary” because it’s totally . . . and cleverly . . . scripted) was on this evening (2/2/07) and the series starts on Saturday (2/3/07) at 8:30 EST. It’s silly and it’s fun and a heck of a lot better than just another episode of CSI (name the city).

One great line from the movie: Nat at one point says: “Jesus, I can’t believe that” which causes Alex to jump up and grab his shirt and say: “Don’t you ever say anything about Jesus, he was one of the best presidents we ever had!” That’s just a sample of some of the chuckles you’ll get out of the movie (and I’m sure the series).

By the way, all the songs in the movie, except for one, were written (music and lyrics) by 7-y/o Nat and you can see and hear for yourself that he may have a real future in the music business or at least in show business (if he doesn’t get ‘burned out’ like so many other child stars). That one song, by the way, that wasn’t written by Nat was written by Alex.

If you can, tune in tomorrow night for the premier of the series (the kids are 9-y/o and 6-y/o now) and let your inner-kid out to play. You’ll walk away feeling good!

One caution, if you do have little ones and they are clammering to watch the movie, read the review by Common Sense media first (Linked Below) — they think it has some bad messages for impressionable-aged kids and I guess I can’t disagree.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, nobody in the movie is naked!!

  4. Hi,

    I appreciate your comment on my blog — I am also a BIG fan of the brothers and watch them whenever I can (and I’m an adult) but I’m sorry to say I don’t know them personally and couldn’t help you get in their band.

    It certainly wouldn’t be easy to get in the Naked Brothers Band but it would be easier (but still not Real easy) to start your own garage band. You’ll either need to learn to write your own music as Nat and Alex do or you can take a tip from the “Jives” and learn some older popular music you really love to listen to. Work hard and perform at every talent contest or wedding or bar mitzvah or birthday party you can get to and get someone who knows video to help you make a demo tape and put it on YouTube, Veoh, DailyMotion and all the other video places. You might get “discovered” that way, but even if you don’t you will have done something that many people don’t do: you will have tried to make your dream a reality.

    I wish you the best of luck and, when you get famous (or any other time), send me an e-mail.

    Very Best Wishes,
    Whymrhymer

  5. You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually one thing which I feel I might never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I’m having a look forward on your subsequent post, I will try to get the cling of it!Friv
