A family in route to New Guinea is shipwrecked on a deserted tropical island. They are forced to remain on the island because of the damage to the ship and the pirates that are roaming the islands. They create a home on the island (centering around a huge tree house) and explore the island and its wildlife. Plenty of adventure ensues as the family deals with issues of survival and pirates, and the brothers must learn how to live on the island with an uncertain future. Written by

This is a dazzling Disney production, beautifully photographed and colorful, but the treatment of its subject (survival on a desert island) is overly wholesome and unrealistic. The family seems to be treating the whole situation like the perfect holiday. Even at the face of many hardships they all remain surprisingly cheerful! And the parents have an annoying habit of calling each other "Mother" and "Father", even when they're alone. By far the most interesting element of the film is the antagonism between the two older brothers, each trying to win the affections of the teenage girl they take along in their adventures; it's the only part of the movie that provides some dramatic conflict.
