Goofs

When the two kids cut themselves loose from a rope tying them back-to-back to a tree, it's obvious that they could have easily wriggled free from under the rope. It was loosely wrapped around them as they sat with their backs to the tree, nothing else was tied, not their hands or feet, so they could have easily gotten out from under it. See more »

An entertaining family movie.
23 June 2002 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

This is an entertaining family movie, with gorgeous scenery and wonderful native music throughout. While the plot gets a little far-fetched in spots, it is still fun to watch. Kirsten Dunst turned in a terrific performance, and the subtle moral lesson is an added bonus.

My only real problem with this movie is the repeated reference to the Kodiak. This movie takes place in British Columbia, Canada, but the Kodiak Bear (a sub-species of the Brown or Grizzly Bear) is only found on the isolated Kodiak Island, Alaska.
