Hermie and Friends "Who Is In Charge Anyway?" by Max Lucado

Rating: Good

Link to the DVD at Who Is in Charge Anyway?

Reason for Watching: We received this as a part of the BookSneeze program from Thomas Nelson Publishers. We received this DVD for free in exchange for an honest review. Our opinions are our own and are not influenced by receiving the DVD for free.

"Who Is In Charge Anyway" is about growing up with God.  Freddie the Flea hears his friends wondering what is special about fleas.  So, Freddie starts to wonder himself, all about what God has planned for him.  Freddie asks God why he is the way he is.  God reveals to Freddie that He has worked in his friends' lives to make them they way they are.  Flashbacks take the viewer along to see the other Hermie and Friends characters in childhood.  Freddie learns that God has made each of them with special gifts.  And that God has something special planned for him as well.  After Freddie learns more about how God is working in his life, he works with other fleas to tell people about God.  Freddie's special talent of evangelism is shown at the end, providing young viewers a great example of how they can share their faith through their words and actions.

  Our little one (age 8) found that "Who Is In Charge Anyway" was a great DVD.  He really enjoyed the flashbacks into the previously unseen childhoods of the Hermie characters.  This is a new look at the same Hermie characters he's grown to love.  He highly recommends this for kids of all ages.  Grownups will find that the DVD teaches a great lesson about God has made everyone with special gifts that they can share with others, and that everyone grows into who God has made them to be over time.  This DVD is everything you could want: funny, clean, and with a deep and powerful meaning.
