Overview

Screenwriting cousins Jeff and Gregg Sherman team up to craft this documentary exploring the darker side of the relationship shared between their famous fathers, Robert and Richard. Back in the 1960s, Robert and Richard Sherman rose to fame penning upbeat songs for such classic children's films as Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. But the pair's catchy, optimistic ditties masked a contentious brotherly bond -- which ultimately grew so sour that their sons Jeff and Gregg weren't aware of one another despite the fact that they only lived a few blocks apart.

This is an unflinching portrait of songwriters Richard M. and Robert B.Sherman,brilliantly done by their sons Jeffrey and Gregory.Through excellent use of interviews and film clips,the boys tell their fathers' life story,warts and all.And it's really quite a sad story.The Shermans created beautiful songs together,but privately it was a different story. There were clashes and animosity,and sadly the film shows that things haven't changed(the "Mary Poppins" stage premiere scenes prove it).The film is both a joyous celebration of the Shermans' careers and a bittersweet look at two brothers who just couldn't get along.It's one of the best showbiz documentaries I've ever seen,and a must-see for Disney fans,Sherman fans,and fans of classic movie musicals.
