Storyline

This is the continuing story of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. In this story their old friend Jim Watson, a former slave, came across what appears to be the lifeless body of Lyle Newman. When some of the townsfolk come across him, they assume that Jim killed Lyle, which he didn't. So Jim runs off and goes to Huckleberry Finn who is now a reporter and asks for his help, who in turn seeks out Tom Sawyer, who is now a lawyer to defend Jim. So, they return to their hometown of Hannibal for Jim's trial, and they are not warmly greeted, it seems that Lyle was well respected and their old friend Becky Thatcher's husband.

A big fluffy wish-fulfillment cream puff
8 June 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

Even if one buys the idea that Huck Finn would grow up to become a reporter (a pretty neat trick considering his disdain for school), the idea of Tom Sawyer as an attorney is a big pill to swallow. That said, this is pretty fun to watch. Sbarge and Anderson make a really nice Tom and Huck, if a bit too cute and perfect, but that's part and parcel of this film. Mark Twain might gag if he saw this movie, but it does make (I hate to have these words come out of me, but here goes) nice family entertainment. It's sort of like those stories you read in high school creative writing class written by the girl who wore hair bows, wrote in lavender ink, used words like "enthused," and went around telling people to smile. The fact that the story involves a murder mystery only slightly reduces the sweetness quotient.
