Not worth my Saturday evening
20 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

*************** S P O I L E R S *************************

When this little number came round to the dregs of Channel 5 on UK television (and the name of C5 should make all those who live in the UK quiver with disgust), I watched it against my better judgement, as all the adverts were screaming "starring Sarah Michelle Gellar".

Actually it doesn't! Although Dyan Cannon - now more known as Judge Whipper from Ally McBeal - is refreshing. Unfortunately Martin Mull (the dastardly Headmaster from Sabrina) also stars in this tale and he is fairly awful at the best of times.

This is definitely a tale for children - it has a bad plot, no real emotion and just a few wide holes in the plot. It can still be enjoyable and the tree house and its contraptions amused me for a little while. Yet the introduction of the pirates, the tourists, and the random windsurfer were very stupid.

In the end it's a shame that 90% of the people who watch this film will do so to look back at Sarah Michelle Gellar before she became famous. Oh, and also the dirtier ones to catch a glimpse of her in a bikini.
