Gets a Medicare Jet-Setter Groovy Rating
If you are of Medicare Jet-Setter age, you will remember when movies entertained the entire family. The whole family would go to the theater together for an escape they all would like.
Now it is even easier and less expensive to get the family together for movie time. Most people have a big-screen color TV in their homes. There are thousands of shows to pick from with just a push of a button. All you need to do is plop on the couch together, pop some buttery popcorn, and pass the soda. The challenge is, deciding which show is family appropriate.
While babysitting the grand-kids recently, the search was on to find a movie we could all enjoy. While surfing through the guide on Prime Video, we stumbled on a show title that sounded promising. The flick was called Troop Zero. Reading through the brief description, we thought it had promise. The movie took place in Georgia in 1977. The premise of the show is about a group of misfit kids coming together. They have a common goal. They want their voices on NASA’s golden record for aliens.
The movie is much more than that. It is about beating all the odds. The film deals with obstacles that make a person almost give up their dreams. The kids include a girl whose mother died and she is a bed-wetter, a boy who is gay but his dad is making him play football, a girl so tough she has everyone scared of her, another girl that is overweight and destroys things, and finally a girl with only one eye who believes in Jesus with all her heart. The best part of the story shows what happens when you do not judge others and become real friends. The movie will make us Medicare Jet-Setters laugh out loud and cry real tears. Troop Zero has many unexpected turns, so do not think this is a predictable show that you can figure out in the first few minutes. It is a feel-good movie with a happy ending.
Even if the grand-kids are not around, pop that popcorn, grab a soda, and watch Troop Zero. You may think it is one of the best movies you have ever seen.
