I bought it, it is very good. I believe it will be a great tool for me to educate people how serious balloons can be on some strange level.

I have the same complaint as the movie Super Size that came out about 5 years ago. Both of these movies have great educational potential, but there are parts of the movie I would not feel comfortable showing to minors. Eventhough the teenagers have already seen or heard all there is to know already. I would say it should have a pg-13 rating for some adult content. I am referring to the Adult balloons part.

It is now showing in theaters around the nation. It was just in St. Louis last week. I really enjoyed the film

Got the dvd from Netflix and watched it over the weekend. Well done documentary on the world of balloons and conventions. It was fun to put a voice and a face to some of the names I have heard of over the years. The conventions looked like fun but ............. give me a magic convention any day.

Yeah a bunch of introverts shuffling cards all day is way more exciting than a bunch of truly creative people sharing and learning. ( sure there is a lot of squeaks and pops but) I took more away from one balloon convention than years of attending magic conventions.

I have enjoyed this DVD and watched it many times. It hasn't changed my wife's mind...she would still rather go to Cancun, Mexico than Twist and Shout...oh, well.

However, this movie is really quite nice and explores many different emotions. If you like balloons and the stories of people's lives you will love this movie.
