The first movie when the Robinson family moves to the mountains it is 1975 and their daughter Jenny is only about 9 years old. This film takes place in 1979, only 4 years later, making Jenny only 12 or 13 years old. But in this movie, Jenny is closer 17 or 18 years old, 5 years older than she should be. See more »

I enjoyed it. So sue me.
7 February 2003 | by (Wellingborough) – See all my reviews

Having not seen the two previous entries in the series I can't comment on how similar this film is to the rest of them, but what I can say is as someone who normally avoids sentimental family films like this it came as a very pleasant surprise. There were plenty of animal fights between the assorted bears/dogs/cats when the pace looked like dropping, and some moments in the film that were sweet without being corny. The acting was generally good too with the actor portraying Boomer (forget his name) being the highlight providing some welcome moments of comic relief.. love that accent too!! True, the music was universally poor (Did they have to play that damn chirpy title track 3 times? We get it.. they're happy!!) And there were some pretty unbelievable parts (Like when the father falls about 10 metres from a tree while being attacked by a bear and survives without a scratch?!) But ultimately this is a pretty decent movie for your whole clan to enjoy.. in fact its almost enough to make me want to give all my worldly possessions away to charity and go and live the simple life in the wilderness. Almost, but not quite.
