A children's film that would have difficulty holding the attention of a first grader!o
10 November 2001 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

"Ridiculous" is probably the best word to describe this time-waster, a kid's film ranked somewhere between TREASURE ISLAND and HOME ALONE. What WERE the Producers thinking?

Through circumstances that simply aren't worth enlightening you with, ten boys and the obligatory canine, are shipwrecked on a desert island. (Why can't anyone be shipwrecked just off Hawaii or the coast of Florida?) Their lives are then intruded upon by a bunch of scheming adults, who if they'd watched BABY GENIUSES would know, never come out winners!

Screenplay was somewhat loosely adapted by Producer/Writer/Director Brown, from an original story called "Deux Ans En Vacance" (Two Years On Holiday) by none other than Jules Verne. For what it is worth, it was filmed entirely in Sydney.
