Storyline

Huckleberry Finn is a young boy in the 1840s, who runs away from home, and floats down the Mississippi River. He meets a run away slave named Jim and the two undertake a series of adventures based on the Picaresque novel by Mark Twain. As the story progresses the duo exploit an array of episodic enterprises, while Huckleberry slowly changes his views of bigotry. Along the way, Huck and Jim meet the King and Duke, who ultimately send the protagonists towards a different route on their journey. As Huck begins to have a change of heart, he gradually begins to distinguish between right and wrong, and conclusively, Huck is faced with the moral dilemma between the world's prejudice, of which he's grown up with, and the lessons Jim has taught him throughout the story about the evils of racism.

Huck's raft is rammed (at around 49 mins) by a ship with a high bow, designed for rough/open seas. But when the camera angle changes, we see a typical Mississippi paddle steamer with the characteristically low bow, steaming by the wreckage. See more »

Not the book, but it doesn't have to be
4 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a big Mark Twain fan. I love his writing, his stories, and his humor. I used to watch this movie when I was a kid, and I recently rented it for old time's sake and fell in love with it all over again. If you're looking for a movie that's parallel to Mark Twain's novel, this isn't it. But that doesn't mean that this movie isn't fun-loving, creative, entertaining, and an overall great movie. I love this movie. I think it's great for kids as well as adults. It's an adventurous tale of freedom and friendship that leaves you smiling in the end and rewinding the movie with a slight sigh of wistfulness. I recommend this movie to a wide range - but not to someone who's using it instead of reading the book or expecting it to to BE the book. It isn't. It's something different, but still just as wonderful as it should be.
