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.

a truly wonderful family film!!!!
27 June 2002 | by (new-brunswick, canada) – See all my reviews

ok, for those of you reading, i just want to let you know that this is my absolute favorite family film!! i'm 15 years old, and i just loved it!! i went babysitting 3 little girls last night, that i babysit all the time. i brought over 4 movies including "babe", "the aristocats" "homeward bound" and "salt water moose". the 3 first videos were mine, but i had rent salt water moose just to see if they might want to watch it, but i doubted it.. to my surprise, the 3 kids got together and quickly said "we want to watch salt water moose!!" so i popped it in their tv-vcr.(that's all they could fit inside their summertime trailer, no room for a big tv..) at the end of the movie, i was surprised to see that i really, really loved it!! it was great!! i don't want to give any of it away because its such a fantastic movie. the kids diid not stop talking about the movie since last night!! i babysat them again today, and they wanted to watch it again! it was so cute, they started going around in the trailer making moose calls and imitating the movie. i was very pleased with the film!! in fact, i loved it so much that i went straight to the video store and asked them if i could buy the video from them and they sold it to me:) now, the kids say each time i go there, they want me to bring the film over!! it so beautiful.. its a film that the whole family can enjoy and watch over again. there's no violence, sex, swearing or nothing!! just plain family fun. i definitely give this a 10/10!!!! recommended to all!
