DVD Review and Giveaway: "Spare Parts," Starring George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis and Marisa Tomei


About the movie:
When four wildly different high schoolers team up to enter a robotics competition against the nation’s top tech colleges, no one believes they have a chance -- no one but Fredi, their new substitute teacher. As Fredi challenges his students to be the best they can be, they show him the power of never giving up in an unforgettable tale that shines with heart, humor, and hope.

George Lopez leads an incredible cast in this inspiring film, which arrived this month on DVD (plus Digital), Digital HD and On Demand. Based on a remarkable true story of four Phoenix high school students who come together against all odds to compete against MIT in a national underwater robotics competition, the “crowd-pleasing” (LA Times) story features an all-star ensemble cast, including George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis, Carlos PenaVega and Marisa Tomei. Rated PG-13.

My thoughts:
I watched this film with my 11-year-old twin boys, and they were definitely inspired by the teens in this movie who came from very disadvantaged backgrounds but were determined to show that they were more than their circumstances. There are some political overtones in this movie because some of the boys or their family members are in this country illegally, so this opens the way to a discussion on this hot-button topic. At the end of the movie, they show the actual people who inspired the film and tell what they have done since high school. Overall, there are many lessons to be learned and issues to be discussed in this film, which makes it a great choice for Family Movie Night.

  31. I'd watch Spare Parts with my mother. I love Jamie Lee Curtis. I think she is an amazing actress and also a wonderful role model. I love that she has let herself age naturally instead of getting all kinds of work done. I love to support anything she does because of that :) Thanks for the opportunity to win.
