Good, but too sappy
27 July 2008 | by (Glenview, IL) – See all my reviews

This is a well-made, engaging, but sappy film. It is well-paced. It contains many exotic location shots. The two stars are beautiful kids. Your won't be able to take your eyes off of this film.

The story of a 17-year-old boy who sails around the world by himself is inspiring. Part of me would like to think it would inspire young people to aspire to great things of their own. Sadly, though, this film was made at the height of the cultural 1970s, which is generally misunderstood and held up to ridicule today. To make matters worse, the romance of the situation is overplayed. By the end of the film, I was laughing at it, and I didn't want to be. There is much to recommend in this film. It's worth seeing, but it's also way too sappy.
