It makes the point... and then another one...
16 December 2001 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Though it may not follow the original plot, the film makes a couple of the same philosophical points and arrives at the same ending, an ending too unpalatably bleak for any family movie. But the script adds a couple of extra sentences to bring us out on a positive note that, in my opinion, is not only acceptable but even insightful (much more so than the claymation Mark Twain movie with its own abbreviated "Mysterious Stranger") in integrating Mark Twain the morose nihilist with Mark Twain the jolly story-teller.
