Review: “Skeeter and the Mystery of the Lost Mosquito Treasure”

Posted: March 30, 2009 by Rick Hogaboam in Movie Reviews

 Okay, so I watched this flick with the kids the other day and thought I’d share some thoughts on it. It’s a short animated film for children. The plotline basically centers on two brothers, Skeeter and Sinclair, who are very different in makeup, with Skeeter feeling inferior to his adventurous brother Sir Sinclair. Without giving away the entire story, I will summarize by  stating that these two brothers need to find a treasure and realize that they need one another. They realize that their unique gifts actually complement one another.

Though the story is an advertised reinfircement of Psalm 139, where we are told that God uniquely makes each person, it is also a basic reminder of 1 Corinthians 12, where Paul likens the Church to a body with various parts. The Corinthian Church struggled with various issues, one of which was a galvanizing superiority among some who were rich or endowed with certain Spiritual gifts. Paul essentially says that God is sovereign in the distribution of Spiritual gifts and that none should boast over whatever gifts they have. We need each other in the Body of Christ and I can personally attest to how I have been most edified at times from certain saints in the Church who had what some would consider insignificant gifts. This story reminded me of the beauty of seeing two people complement each other in a common goal. I commend the story for kids and pray that all kids would realize that they are all uniquely gifted and I pray that those tempted toward bullying would refrain in light of the fact that God made us as we are.
