Wild America was one of my brother's favorites growing up. We watched it ritually whenever we went over to our aunt's house. Wild America tells the story of three brothers who wish to film a nature film for their town to show them the beauties of their country. Jonathon Taylor Thomas stars in this story of brotherly love, ambition, and beauty. The script is filled with laughs, and even if you may not cry at this wonderful family film, you may be close to tears. From the rolling hills to the desert, this is truly an American movie. Though smaller children may not enjoy it, an audience of ages 8 and above will find it a treat. I recommend this film to anyone who has had a brother or has had a dream.
