diaryofawimpykiddogdays2diaryofawimpykiddogdays

Family film part 3
Year: 2012
Year in film: 1990s ?
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Greg, Rowley ~13
Kind of beds: separate + same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 3 /10
Rating: ***
Comment: Greg (Zachary Gordon) and his friend sharing one single and narrow bed but Greg at other direction and Rowley’s feet are near his head. Also the usual rooms like in the earlier movies (Greg now wearing shorts in bed instead of tighty whities). At the end also a view of an empty yellow scouting tent inside.

Had been aired yesterday. Rebroadcasting today. Still a funny movie and some quite good scenes at a waterpark but Greg and his older brother are much older now and not very handsome. I prefer Rowley here. Typical pranks and plot like the other movies.

Rating 3 for this only. Movie 2 has even rating 6.

Comment:
2 brothers, played by James Williams and Drew Winget sharing this colorful room. Both at least shirtless and at the beginning of the movie.

I think I have seen it before but also consider buying this on DVD (nut it’s quite expensive). Although only few good bedroom scenes. The movie isn’t also not that bad and quite funny. Though the boys are quite young. Also starring some other I think 3 boys including handsome Steven Hartman.

Rating 8-9 for now. I will recheck it at slow speed the next broadcasting.

Matthew Lawrence in this bedroom. Not sure if he might have siblings (sister) but probably not and if any in a different room.

From my rare movies list of my overalls blog. There’s at least a girl in overalls. But I only have seen a short clip without her.

I like the Lawrence brothers. Unfortunately this Hallmark TV movie seems to be very rare.

Rating 6-7 for this bedroom.

Grant Barker as main character in this ranch bedroom. Metal bed and blue wallpaper and sheets. Dog sharing the bed. He has an older sister but she has a room for her own (I think not shown).

Perfect ranch movie (rating 9 on my western blog, will soon be updated, also sonn on my overalls blog) and I have even bought it on DVD.

Some few bedroom scenes but nothing much more of interest. His mom visiting him.

For more infos see my other blogs.

Rating 5 for this bedroom.

Comment:
There are 3 brothers, twins Mark and Willie, 12 yo in season 1 (played by Jeremy Licht and Luis Daniel Ponce) and their older brother played by 16 yo Jason Bateman.

Currently there’s only one episode on YouTube (Nightmare on Oak Street, s3e9) and I think all 3 brothers sharing one room. Jason later sitting on the left near the left bed watching to the left (over his right shoulder) and there’s the other 12 yo shown sleeping. At least 2 beds but I think 3, maybe the room constellation changed in later seasons.

Very interesting series (at least the early seasons) aka Valerie’s Family and “The Hogan Family”. Not officially on DVD but there are some expensive DVD-R offers. (Not sure about the image quality and seller quality). 6 seasons. I like the 80s.

Although I haven’t seen much, except that episode and some pics, I give rating 9 for now.

Comment:
A single bed on the left and a red bunk bed on the right. Also one scene with a shirtless boy and a woman in one bed (end of the movie).

The main character is called Basile (11 yo Aurelien Wiik). There’s also a boy called Adrien and one other , probably older boy. Not sure if the others are brothers. I think Basile will be adopted. So maybe then 3 brothers.

My second entry in this series after “L’enfant sage”, rating 6. I also found one more movie (girl+boy), coming soon.

Correct apostrophe to fix the search: Regards d’enfance:

Comment:
10 young kids, I think boys and girls in one large bed in the song “There Were Ten In A Bed” (episode “Play Along Songs”). Also other bedroom scenes (mainly girls).

Quite funny, but this is just a joke (like the Waltons parodies). There are other more realistic bedrooms (also see my bib overalls blog (rating 8), especially post “Story 44: Kidsongs 2).

Comment:
There are 3 brothers (+a toddler). I found very few bedrooms scenes. There’s a red bunk bed in this big room (Tim, played by Mick Mulder I think sleeps in the top bunk) and Jelle (Dajo Hogeweg) in the lower bunk. Their older brother Erik (on left, 10 yo Matthijs van de Sande Bankhuyzen) maybe has a room for his own (?) or a separate bed in this room as well.

I used to watch this series in the 90s and I like it. Funny kids and plots but the 2 boys are very young.

I like bunk beds, but rating 4 only.

Also on my overalls blog, rating 4 (boy, girls)

I think Arthur Reggie III (Alfie, on left) and his younger brother Ralph Woolfolk IV sharing this colorful bedroom. Beds are different aligned and far away. They have a sister (but she has a room for her own).

From my overalls blog (boys and teen girl in overalls, rating 5).

Maybe a typical bedroom for younger kids. There are better series.

Rating 4

Home Improvement – season 8

Family comedy series with 3 sons of Tim Allen, 8 seasons
Year: 1991-1999
Year in film: 1998
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Brad 17, Marc 14
Kind of beds: bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly
Rating: 5 /10
Rating: *****
Comment: An interesting messy bedroom in s8e11. A blue wooden bunk bed with matching shelves. Maybe selfmade by Tim Allen. As Randy (pictured) was out of home for a long time and just came for a Christmas visit, I think this is the room of Brad,17 yo and Marc, 14 yo. Randy had to clean up this room.

I had this ready prepared some months ago, so now finally this update.

Of course I prefer the earlier episodes with the younger 3 brothers (separate beds, often Brad as the oldest had his own room. Randy once moved to the cellar).

Main entry (rating 5) at

/2012/12/05/home-improvement/

Please also note my entries on my overalls blog (boys, girls, men, women).

I don’t have much messy bedrooms and I like bunk beds. But this is a brief scene and I think studio setting and nothing much to see.
