Did You Know?


When the girl goes out on the front step to look at the snowy landscape, there is no snow on the porch or the cabin, and both she and her little brother are too lightly dressed to be comfy standing there if the weather was truly cold enough for the snow to have coated everything in a heavy sheath of white.

"Let's keep the record straight, Boomer -- wolves do not attack people."
12 September 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Wilderness Family sequel that continues the adventures of our beloved family of irresponsible hippies who forsook the city life to live in the mountains, befriending wild animals. It's pretty much more of the same as the last one, except here the little girl's age has been accelerated to make her a teen, despite only taking place six months after the last film. Robert Logan and Susan Damante-Shaw return, as does George "Buck" Flower as the creepy wandering mountain man friend of the family's. More corny music, this time with songs from Barry "Greg Brady" Williams. The natural scenery is, of course, the highlight and the best reason to watch this. They make living in the wilderness look so appealing I was tempted to try it myself, until I remembered how much I hate bugs and snakes and how much I enjoy indoor plumbing and food that doesn't bite me.
