Entertainment Reviews:

Hollywood Reporter - 04/27/2009
"This entertaining, inside-show-business documentary is greatly enhanced by the presence of the two engaging 'boys' of the title -- brothers who found harmony through music and dissonance with each other."
Variety - 04/25/2009
"[The] engaging docu draws on plentiful archival footage and A-list interviewees....[The] archival materials' condition and overall assembly are first-rate."
Los Angeles Times - 05/22/2009

USA Today - 05/22/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] touching and illuminating documentary about he songwriting duo....It's a heartfelt tribute to a pair of extraordinary men..."
New York Times - 05/22/2009
"THE BOYS: THE SHERMAN BROTHERS' STORY, an irresistible documentary portrait of the brothers made by their sons, is a family affair, dysfunction included."
Washington Post - 11/06/2009
"Bob and Richard Sherman have had a knack for a clever lyric....There is no lack of great tidbits for Disney fans..."

Product Description:

Disney's amazing history would sound a little less sweet without the beloved songs "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "It's a Small World (After All)," and "I Wanna Be Like You," all classics that were written by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman. This documentary charts the lives of the hit-making brothers, beginning with their early years and revealing the personal struggles that were hidden by their gleeful-sounding creations. Directed by the sons of the Sherman Brothers, this film features interviews with Julie Andrews, John Lasseter, Alan Menken, Hayley Mills, Randy Newman, Dick Van Dyke, John Williams, and Ben Stiller, who also serves as an executive producer.
