I watched it with the hubby and really enjoyed it. It was so interesting to see how the different babies progressed before one another. It makes you realize too, here in the US we really don’t need all we think we do. I would recommend  watching it to anyone! 🙂

I loved that movie!  I thought it was done so well (LOVE focus features) and it was interesting and funny too!  It’s so refreshing to see how other countries raise their children.

I loved the Mongolian baby!  And when the SF baby tried to escape the sing-a-long time.  So cute!  And so amazing how a movie with no plot or real dialogue could hold your attention for so long.

I just saw it on Netflix today, but I didn’t know what it was so I just skimmed over it. I’m glad you posted this, now I’m going to watch it!

Love. This. Movie.

Seriously, it’s my go-to when I’ve had a terrible day and need to be cheered up.

My favorite bit is when Mari (Japan) is trying to slide a wooden rod through a hole in a disc and just goes nuts when she can’t make it work.

ooh… I love that movie too, just saw it last week! I love the opening scene with the two kiddos fighting over the plasitc bottle, so funny…. and the Mongolian baby playing with the baby cows. My heart melted.

I thought the Mongolian kids were HILARIOUS I could not stop laughing.  I really enjoyed it, too bad they didn’t have a few more kids from other parts of the world too!

Loved it!! I thought the Mongolian kid and his brother were awesome, the big bro obviously wanted to get rid of his little bro! And they were all so deliciously adorable.

@teaadntoast: That’s my favorite part too! And also when the Mongolian older brother just drags the cat around.

See it! It’s free on Netflix right now and it’s so cute. It just makes you sit there with a dumb smile on your face.

Saw it when it came out in the theater–what stuck with me after so many months was worried about the safety of the kids–especially when that little rascal came on with his brother.

Now that I know it’s on Netflix again, I’ll definitely watch again.

I just watched it on Netflix Instant last week! I LOVED it! It really makes you think about how there are so many ways to raise a child and still have it grow up healthy and well-adjusted. The Namibian baby is so freaking cute.

@teaadntoast: The part where the baby from Japan has a meltdown over her frustration with her toys and keeps flopping on the floor totally cracked me up!

I just watched it last week as well! I also loved it 🙂 It is really refreshing to think that with sooo many different ways to raise a child, you can’t really go “wrong” because all these children are happy and healthy and well adjusted according to their culture’s standards. I will say that I got very neverous with the Mongolian baby around those cows though!
