"Don't you ever wear anything but jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeans?"
6 March 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Three kids, including Diff'rent Strokes' Dana Plato, become lost in the swamp during a hurricane. A Bigfoot-like creature called Big-Bay-Ty comes to their rescue. Had he eaten them, the movie would have been so much better. Dawn Wells plays the kids' terrible mom. Her overwrought acting makes you wish Mary Ann had stayed on Gilligan's Island.

It's pretty insipid even for a G-rated movie. It's also mind-numbingly dull with terrible performances all around. Most of the supporting actors seem to be making the lines up as they go along. There's some of the worst music to ever be put forth by man in this movie. Have earplugs ready. Being a huge fan of The Legend of Boggy Creek, I was of course disappointed by this weak Disney "sequel" that has nothing to do with the original. That film's creator, Charles B. Pierce, had no association with this film. Pierce would go on to do his own Part 2 years later. The only thing to really say in that sequel's defense is that it's still better than this turd.
