  1. Essential Classics – Family Films? Wizard of Oz, NO argument there. But ‘The Goonies’? What reviewer thought that was a family classic? It’s good but there are so many other movies that are better (e.g., ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ – yeah I know it’s a Christmas movie, maybe there should be another Essential set called Christmas Classics along with ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ – the original not the insipid remakes). And ‘Willy Wonka’? It’s kind of quirky classic, more of a cult film, if you ask me. I think someone ought to go back and put together another three movies better suited to the moniker ‘Classic Family Films’.

  2. These are 3 great movies for the whole family. Spanning from the 30’s to the 80’s, you get some of the most exciting family movies ever made. I’m buying this set the day it is released and showing my entire family.

  4. This is a good price to get two classic movies – Wizard of Oz and Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I’m not sure how “Goonies” ended up in this collection, but the kids seem to like it and now ask to watch it. Overall a good purchase.

  5. I have 2 little girls 1 1/2 & 3…..both are crazy over The Wizard of Oz…. but the cost of it alone on other sites was crazy. This collection was WONDERFUL! They now have 2 favorites with Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory being a close 2nd to OZ. They aren’t to fond of the Goonies…. too bad the collection didn’t have ET or Annie or something like that. But hey….overall…. This product is GREAT!!!! A wonderful find.
