Gunther and the Paper Brigade


“You and work are like oil and vinegar. You don’t exactly mix,” says Gunther’s Dad to his unmotivated teenage son. But when Gunther needs money to buy tickets to a concert, he reluctantly takes on a paper route and begins working with the younger boys in the neighborhood. What ensues is a comical, and at first, inept attempt to deliver papers, but Gunther learns the value of hard work and becomes successful, maybe too successful. The neighborhood bullies see how lucrative the paper delivery business can be, and they seize control of the boys’ route. Now Gunther must decide whether he will stand up for himself and the other younger boys.

Dove Review

This is a delightful movie about a boy that moves to a new neighborhood and learns how to be responsible by having a summer paper route with some other neighborhood boys. As Gunther’s way of doing things unfolds, he learns that he has to change plus he learns about the bullies’ ways and decides to stand up to them. Along the way Gunther learns about how a little kindness does pay off. You will enjoy this movie as it makes you laugh and is very entertaining.
