SHOULDER SHOWDOWN: SIBLING RIVALRY cover image
Adorable! The film is about a girl who has a sibling that is constantly annoying her. She has a shoulder showdown with one shoulder having an angel on it and the other with a devil. She asks these versions of herself what she should do.

I like this film because it's about something almost everyone can relate to. People deal with the same problem as the little girl does in the film. Most people can relate to thinking about doing something bad and good in any situation. I know from having two siblings how I need to make decisions that are nice or mean.

The acting and camera work is suitable for an indie film and the special effects are super neat. Seeing the angel on the dad's shoulder is cute and funny. The costumes of the little girl as a devil and angel are well done. The shoulder devil and angel are believable. I like that the angel shows up when the girl is playing with her brother at the end. The father angel is also cool. All the acting is quite acceptable. The sister (Terra Smith) delivers her lines okay and the brother (Calvin Smith) is good at acting crazy. The dad (Sterling Smith) has nice emotion at the end.

The message of the film is to be nice to your siblings. Even when they bother you, you should still try to appreciate the good things they do. My favorite part of the film is at the end when there is an angel on the dad's shoulder. I think it is nice that he doesn't have a shoulder devil. I give this 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 5 to 12. Reviewed by Cadence G., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Terra is frustrated with her little brother and doesn't know what to do. That's when her Shoulder Devil and Angel appear.
