    Polar Bears fell just short of the the level I know it could have achieved. However it was Captivating and Interesting. Their some touching moments and it is those touching moments that pulls a movie to above the 4 mark. The Nat and Rosalina story through this movie was done excellently. Allie DiMeco, Quassim, Nat and Grace Cartwright, Really pulled this together and This was one of the many great things about this movies. Alex Vs the press... This really made this movie what it is, and really added the emotive moments which raised the bar from good to great. 'Why' this was not only the song of the movie, but the album aswell, It's use far surpassed 5/5 mark i gave it previously. Alex was great in getting across a save the environment message. I personal felt that both of the area although the core of the movie could have gone further, I expected the environmental message to be a bit more preachy. However the were a number of area which i felt were unnecessary baggage. Most of that baggage revolved around the 'State Dinner' which i felt was unnecessary and the film time would have been better used on the environmental message. This has been the most difficult review to date, and after careful consideration and having watched the movie a number of times i was still stuck on 4.25/5 I had to flip a coin to tip the odds and as a result i give this 4 and a half stars.moreless
  • The season 2 finale. Nat finally admits to loving Rosalina. A happy ending to the season, as Nat and Rosalina finally kiss.

    This episode was full of new songs such as... Why, Eventually, I've got a question, I'll do anything for you, and Flying Away(either that or Fly Away). It also had a very nice plot. I liked the jelousy, it added a lot to the movie. This is the best episode so far. The actors were mostly at their best. The script was great. Overall was an awesome TV movie. I absolutely loved Big Ella. She was adorable, funny, and added a lot to the movie. I loved her! I also thought it was great how it was about the environment. Save the Polar Bears! Hurricane Katrina was also a great connection to it, with song Flying Away. It was sad. And of course the Natalina! Nat finally gets his girl the one he's been waiting for the whole show! That was definitely what I was waiting for. Now we just have to wait and see what season 3 brings us!moreless

    This is the best Naked Brothers Band episode ever so far. I love how Nat gets Rosalina as his girlfriend and the kiss. The kiss was my favorite part out of the whole movie.I am sure everyone who likes the naked brothers band will agree also. This episode is a great way to express romance and a way for teenagerswho are not sure if a boy or a girl likes them more than a friend gives them hope to know if they like them. I also like how Alex was trying to save the polar bears but I think he should have tryed to save more than the polar bears. How about the trees they are killing them left and right. SAVE THE TREES!!!!!!!!!moreless

    This is by far the best episode yet season 3 should be a hit after this amazing season 2 episode

    mrs wolff did a fine job writing thisits about time we see in a series something that we wanted to happen

    Polar Bears made me laugh out loud almost the whole movie

    like other shows some of things the audience laughs at are stupid and dont make any sense like hannah montana

    jokes on that show make me confused but here they use a

    nice combination of seriuos jokes and completely hilariuos jokes and nat and alex did a fine job also nat and rosalinas chemistry is very convincing and for my conclusion this will go down as the greatest nbb episode of all timemoreless

    One of the greatest TV movies of Naked Brothers Band. I really loved it. The songs were great, and the TV movie itself had a great plot. I loved Big Al, she was so funny. "Let the curse of Santa, be upon you!". I loved the Natalina relationship in the movie. I also liked Alex's song "Why". And I loved the Santa Claus ending in which everybody were wearing Santa hats. A great example for children, and very funny. Another funny part; Qaasim vs. Nat, that was really funny. I really loved the episode. 10.0/10.0. Series clas/sic. Great example. Peace out.moreless
