City dweller Skip leaves his urban life behind indefinitely to seek fresh air for his daughter's health. His wife grudgingly sacrifices domestic comforts, while their darling boy Toby and his dog Boomer have the time of their lives roaming in the wild. Meeting wildlife however has its pros and cons, especially as not all bears are nearly as tame as a local glutton and a pair of cubs in need of adoption. Written by
I teach 5th grade and show this movie to my kids each year. I loved it as a child and they all love it as well. It's nothing fancy (and the little girl crying tends to get old) but it's a good movie. It tells the story of a family who packs up and leaves the city to live in the mountains. They start in an old cabin and build their new home. Ther are no fancy effects. It was definitely not a high budget movie, but one to be enjoyed time and time again. My only complaint is the portrayal of the wolves. It showed them as vicious creatures attacking the little girl (even though Boomer explained what happened later). I always take the time to talk to my kids about the truth. This is definitely a movie I will watch over and over and continue to show my students. Best of all, it's a real movie with real people (not a cartoon) and there's not a cuss word to be found!
