My wife LOVES Sound of Music so I have been put through it's paces many times on VHS, once it hit DVD I bought it for her and we watched it that night, I actually stayed in the room and ENJOYED it. \:\) The PQ appeared to be greatly improved as well \:\) I guess I will have to buy it on BR if/when it becomes available. The music in a lossless format should be great.

Loved the audio on that movie (and the movie too)!

Depends on what you consider Family Appropriate. My 4yr old doesn't like Lord of the Rings.

I tried to watch it with him and paying attention to it from a kids perspective, while there may not be too much gore, it certainly has its fair degree of violence. Less of a concern is the tone of the film. *So* much of it is dark and menacing. There is very little of the movie that little kids would enjoy. Bilbo's Eleventy-First birthday being a great exception.

Of course any kids coming to an open house aren't *really* going to be watching he movie... its background so maybe it would work.

I second "any Pixar Movie on loop". Toy Story 2 gets my vote.

Loc: It's all about the location.
It's actually rather strange to think that people would be hauling little ones around with them to go house shopping. Most movies of 3 hrs length will have 'something' in them that warrants exclusion where young eyes and ears are concerned.

Wall-E on a loop would be perfect.

I don't suppose you could train the Realtor to hit the play button after the movie stopped if it is less than 3 hours in lenght.

It wasn't obvious on the Sony S550 BD player how to do an A-B loop, but on my "ancient and archaic" Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD player, I press the "Repeat button" and get about 6 options, including "Repeat Title"... Works like a charm. I am thinking of either Toy Story 1 or 2 since they also fill my 16:9 screen. :-)

"Ice Age" or similar would also be a good one.
