Storyline

Young Jim Craig returns to the Australian high country, after being away herding the horses he caught and sold, in order to provide a stake for his future. He finds things quite different than when he left: his girlfriend, Jessica Harrison, is being pursued by a rich suitor, Jessica's father wants him out of her life, and the residents of the high country are being driven out by the wealthier low country ranchers. Jim definitely has his work cut out for him. Written by Marinelle K. Szenasy

Trivia

In Disney Channel's 1999-2002 series "So Weird" Season 1 Episode 12 (Coma), "Return to Snowy River" is the featured movie at a theater in the hometown of a woman who is stuck in an alternate reality of her past. The characters use the clue that the movie had come out 11 years previous to help the woman "find her way home" in the childhood version of the town and thus awake from the coma. See more »

disappointing sequel
20 April 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i didn't think this this sequel to The Man From Snowy River was that great.i thought it was too drawn out.plus,it was fairly heavy on the romance angle,which isn't my cup of tea.Tom Burlinson returns as Jim Craig,the title character in the first movie.Sigrid Thornton returns as his love interest.Kurt Douglas played her father,Harrison,in the original.Brian Denehey plays that role in this movie.this is not the worst movie i have seen,but it wasn't as good as i'd hoped.still,just like the first one,there is some very beautiful scenery,and a great musical score.Burlinson and Thornton are both decent actors,at least in this movie.Dennehy is also good.for me,Return to Snowy River is a 5/10
