Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Family Adventure
9 January 2000 | by (Hanahan, South Carolina) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was a fine, clean motion picture with action and adventure. I appreciated the high moral values portrayed in this entertaining film. If you are looking for a picture to enjoy with your family(small children included) for an evening, then I would recommend this one.
