Default Won't You Be My Neighbor - Mr Rogers Documentary

Won't You Be My Neighbor finally opened by me and I saw it the first chance I got. It's 90 minutes of pure joy and raw emotion. Seeing all the people whose lives were changed by Fred was just amazing. By the end, you could hear the sniffles and I didn't even realize that I myself was pretty close to tears. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a feel good story about one of the best of us.

It's almost sad walking out and realizing how mean we can be to each other. Life is so short and we only get so many chances to make an impact on our kids and on each other. This movie is a great reminder of that and a great reminder of how compassion and love makes a difference to those around us.

Man, if you can’t appreciate Mr. Rogers, I think that’s just sad. The documentary is truly inspirational and shows humanity on a level we seldom get to see.

Pretty sure I would cry watching this, will wait for it to be on Amazon prime. At least I can cry alone.

The world needs a Mister Rogers more and more these days.

That, and some people in this world just can't take jokes. Especially nowadays people get "offended" by each and every little thing.

Jokes aside, I have tons of respect for Mr. Rogers. Wish there was more people like him today.

It's all good. If making jokes at my expense makes people happy then so be it. Just wanted to share that I saw this since a lot of other movies seem to get their own threads. I just hope that anyone who does go to see it, enjoys it as much as I did.

People from Pittsburgh take their Mr. Rogers seriously, unlike the irreverent bastards in this thread.

The Mr. Rogers I grew up on would ease children by approaching scary issues like the ominous threat of nuclear war or how to cope with prejudices and racism.

I get the feeling that if the show existed today, it wouldn't have the same impact. Probably would be forced by the producers to talk about gender dysphoria, participation trophies and peanut allergies.

Well the show kind of does exist today in the form of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. I have to watch it when I visit my niece. While not as serious in tone as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, the cartoon does approach a good amount of subjects, none of which were mentioned by you. I hope your comments were not an attempt to bring politics into this thread.

Certainly not, I'm just saying it was a completely different world back then.

Well the problems and issues faced by children and the questions they ask change with the times so I'd assume that if the show was still on and Fred Rogers was still with us, he'd tackle those issues as he saw fit.

The trailer itself evoked such powerful feelings I teared up watching it. Fred Rogers ethos is one that everyone should embrace - that all children deserve love and are capable of it. I am almost nervous to see the film but definitely will. Thanks for sharing your experience, Brobocop.

Genuine emotion? What is wrong with you.

The cool thing about Mr. Rogers is, he'd probably accept Carlo with open arms.

I was actually a little too old for it by the I first discovered it, so while the messages and songs were a little simplistic (albeit, still valuable) for me, I nevertheless watched because I loved the "How It's Made" segments often featured on the show. I found those endlessly fascinating as a youngster and still enjoy watching the current TV series that is comprised of nothing but those kinds of segments.

This was a fine man. Maintaining and expanding our capacity for kindness towards one another is humanity at its very best. Fred Rogers dedicated his life to demonstrating and encouraging that very thing where it would do the most good.

It was definitely in jest. Carlo16 has a legendarily dry sense of humor and it is so finely attuned, often only dogs, bats, moths, dolphins, and owls get the joke.

More humor:
