Goofs

When Jake Irons and Brighty are crossing the Colorado River in the cage, Brighty freaks out and starts kicking at the wooden cage door. Before he starts kicking, the door is seen to be firm, intact, and unbroken, but in the shot of his first kick, you can see that before the hoof impact the door is already somewhat broken.

A good choice for the family
17 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

A western flavored adventure film that takes place in the Grand Canyon around the turn of the century.

A nice Disney type movie about a a boy and his beloved burro Brighty. A movie that the whole family could watch together.

After renting this film we then took our family vacation at the Grand Canyon to see it for ourselves. The kids fell in love with Brighty and of course we had to see all the "burros" during our canyon trip. Found out that the movie was based on a true story of a burro called "Bright Angel" or Brighty for short.

Just bought the DVD version of the movie...great sound and such canyon scenes!
