Henry & Me Movie Review #themoms


On Monday August 18th, Henry & Me had a red carpet premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in NYC with The Moms.  Jack, my dad and I were there to see the children's movie with a huge message of HOPE when given a challenge in life, health related or not.   Everyone will be able to download it on September 30th from various platforms, and I highly suggest you do, buy tissues too.

Henry & Me was written by Ray Negron who came to be apart of the team at a young age when he was taken under the wing of George Steinbrenner becoming bat boy and sticking with the team for nearly 30 years now, currently as an author and personal consultant.

Without giving too much away, the story revolves around young boy Jack who is sick, and many Yankee Greats come to him with messages.  Voices were provided by Richard Gere, Chaz Palminteri, Danny Aiello, Luis Guzman, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Austin Williams with Hank Steinbrenner and many of The New York Yankees.

Proceeds from EVERY sale of the movie will be donated to many charities all close to the NYY and those involved with the film, what a great way to give back  #HenryandMe!!  After the screening The Moms did a talk back and when asked about the boy in the movie, turns out he was there and came down to then participate in the talk back, now 19 years old and in college.  Just an amazing message and movie great for all ages, guaranteed to touch you in some way.

Disclosure:  I was provided tickets to attend this movie for review, no other compensation was provided.  All opinions as always as 100% honest and my own.
