This was a great family movie with all the elements of good entertainment. There was action, drama, a touch of comedy, love, family, romance, intrigue and villainy, and triumph of right. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. It would be lovely if, all these years later, a sequel could be done bringing Cyrus and Philadelphia together again. After all she and her family had to go through at the hands of her charming but irresponsible husband, and after all Cyrus went through to rescue her over and over again only to have his heart broken over and over again, it would be great to see them finally be able to have the relationship both really desire to have. It would be great fun to see her travel as a mature woman now to the States and run into Cyrus and see if the sparks still fly between them.
