An unexpected reaction!
11 December 1998 | by (Duncan, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This is a really engaging story in which a boy takes over the male head-of-the-family role when his dad goes off to war. My reaction, tho, was probably quite the opposite from what Disney had in mind. I found myself rooting for the bad guy, when the leading lady was so rude and self-righteous. (Guess that's what happens when someone from the 90's watches a film from the 70's.) All main characters were very well cast, and I'm sure we're all rooting for the boy. Good family values, as are in all Disney films. This is one of my favorite videos.
