Boomer is a mountain man who is constantly on his feet, hiking in the mountains and has a meager, low fat and calorie diet. But in this film, Boomer is over 30 lbs heavier. Considering his lifestyle, this not likely. See more »

Beautiful, Sweet Family Film
27 August 2001 | by (Kansas) – See all my reviews

Mountain Family Robinson is a beautiful family movie, with wonderful scenery and an adequate cast. The rugged Colorado Rockies are here with all their splendor. The Robinsons face many adversities in the film, but come through all of them as a family.
