The Boys: the Sherman Brothers' Story is an intimate journey through the lives of Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman, the astoundingly prolific, Academy Award®-winning songwriting team that defined family musical entertainment for five decades.

The feature-length documentary, conceived, produced and directed by two of the songwriters' sons, takes audiences behind the scenes of the Hollywood magic factory and offers a rare glimpse of a unique creative process at work. It also explores a deep and longstanding rift that has kept the brothers personally estranged throughout much of their unparalleled professional partnership.

  • 4 stars "Lovingly created by a pair of cousins: the sons of each of the Sherman brothers. An effervescent romp down memory lane for anyone of a particular generation. It was good story telling with extra high praise for the editor. Skipping back and forth between the brothers telling the same story from different continents was precious."
