Goofs

When Tanamashu is "talking" to Kabuna, he is speaking in English, a language which he wouldn't speak to his God with. However, this could easily be explained as Wednesday, herself, could speak English "fluently," as well as all the other tribal women doing the same. It's also a fact that Tanamashu had heard other dialects of English since he did recognize that Kaboona spoke, out loud, with a "white-man dialect." Also the fact that he had an umbrella over his head almost constantly, and that he recognized a torpedo makes it apparent that, despite the relative uniqueness of the tribe, they have had considerable contact with the rest of the world, making the English talking to Kaboona more understandable.

One of the most underrated Disney flicks ever! Wholesome family funniness.
18 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an all time classic Disney flick, and TOTALLY underrated. I used to watch this all night long when I was sick. The humor and silliness of the film always made me feel better. Now, as an adult, I see so much more in the film. Of course you have Dick Van Dyke, who is a comic genius, who steals the show with his physical comedy, but underneath it, the film takes on some serious issues. I've used the film to teach about the women's rights movement in the USA, and even to explain the spread of democratic ideals, and the effect it can have on a society. Really! The most important thing is that this is a wholesome, family fun comedy. It makes hardened teenagers laugh, and I always get comments about how good it is. They always say "I thought it was going to be stupid, but it was really ________ (good, funny, cute, fun, fill in your own positive). High praise indeed! I was frequently told that "The guy from Mary Poppins is funny, but Floyd steals the show!" I absolutely recommend this flick. It is one of the all time best!
