Team TLC Movie Night: Lillian’s choice – “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” .. We’ve seen it several times, yet Lillian wanted to watch it again.

Lillian says, “Good, awesome, 100% recommended to watch, musical, very good acting and special effects, and my favorite parts are the singing in the garden, the singing wind up doll, the end, and my favorite songs are chitty, chitty, bang, bang and Toot Sweet.”

I say, “Love watching this magical tale with Thomas and Lillian. We had so much fun dancing during intermission!”

Thomas says, “Even though I’ve seen it four times, it’s still original and good! I like characters and special effects. I like the idea of the fantasy and the candy. It has a good storyline about him being an inventor.”
