Understandably obscure!
25 September 2002 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

It's not surprising why this particular effort from award-winning producer Saul Zaentz has been completely forgotten, despite being released by a major distributor. It's extremely slow and seemingly endless, with lead actor McKee Redwing so bad that (even with the understanding he was a child at the time of filming) it's understandable why he never made another movie. The fact that his character is so sullen and rude for much of the movie doesn't exactly endear him as well. There is nothing here you haven't seen before (and better.)

The only points of interest are seeing some nice scenery, and seeing Randy Quaid and Christopher Lloyd (before they became famous) thoroughly embarrass themselves onscreen. Bet they don't list this movie on their resumes - and I bet Zaentz doesn't, either.
