I gave it a high rating in honor of my five year old daughter, who loved the entire movie, as cheesy and dopey as it was. The only reason I bought it in the first place was because I was deceived into thinking by the front picture that it had something to do with Grizzly ADAMS on Grizzly Mountain! I was looking forward to seeing Mad Jack and #7, as well as Ben the bear and all the other animals that made me love the TV show as a kid.
The entire movie is a poor display of even poorer acting and direction. It seems as if it were written by a sixth grader. All of the characters are predictable and transparent. I really cringed at the sight of a teenage gal playing leapfrog with her preteen brother. It would have been more believable as a whole if the two main characters-the kids--were actually YOUNGER... Though, to give it some credit, the 3 stooge like bad guys did lighten things up a bit.
