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.
