Goofs

Near the beginning of the film, the family car is shown driving from Toronto supposedly to Nova Scotia. The SkyDome is shown in the background with the car clearly driving west on the Gardiner Expressway. You would drive east to Nova Scotia on that highway; there is no shortcut going west from there.

Tender Nature
2 August 2003 | by (Obscurity) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films one could watch on a Saturday sometime, and in turn gain a good life's attitude through the week.

Bobby Scofield (Johnny Morina) is a 12-year-old baseball player, come with his recently divorced mother, Eva (Lolita Davidovitch), to live in Nova Scotia for the summer with his grandma. Soon after arriving, he meets local girl, Jo Parnell (Katharine Isobel), with whom he strikes up an immediate friendship.

The two children, with the help of Jo's father, Lester (Timothy Dalton), make it their mission to find a mate for Charley, prodigal mate-hungry moose stuck by himself on a little remote island outside Nova Scotia. Though they encounter various snags and some seemingly insurmountable obstacles along the way, they do manage to haphazardly build a mutual friendship of substance, which by rote involves their parents and intensifies their mission.

Mistake me not, though: This is a happy-go-lucky film, with wonderful actors playing characters to love - And I certainly do - I love it all!
