Nice Clean Family Film
5 June 2004 | by (Wyoming) – See all my reviews

This is a typical coming-of-age movie; Nicely done however. Tom's travels to reach his father involve him in rather stereotypical adventures so you certainly can predict what's coming, but it's fun...and CLEAN, which is nice in this day and age.

Acting for the most part is lukewarm, except for Nick Mancuso who plays his Mountie roll well. I'm surprised he did not get top billing. It moves pretty well though and will keep average kids interested.

If you and your family like the boy, dog, growing up, frontier type of movie, you'll enjoy this one. It's well worth watching.

This movie may be hard to find. I've never seen it on tape or DVD. My oldest kid taped it off TV when he was little.
