Storyline

When Angelino Jack Robinson gets a new job in Australia, he decides to take his sissy wife Ann, brave sons Shane and Todd and wining daughter Elisabeth 'Lizzy' by sailing yacht from Hong Kong to Syndney. The gun he gets thrown in by Sheldon Blake proves disabled, and for a sinister reason: near Borneo, Blake's men turn up to capture them. The family escapes but loses the yacht on a reef. They build a cool camp on an island. But the pirates keep coming back, and the boys discover why: he hid a treasure in the yacht. Shane is also discovered and captured in more then one way by French plane wreck survivor Françoise, who later teams up with the family. Written by KGF Vissers

25 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot is painfully unbelievable and slow. The actors are plastic. They look like they are on a trip to the LA zoo rather than being shipwrecked on a deserted island, chased by pirates. I don't mind the pirates being imbeciles. It adds a comic element. But this film takes it to new heights.The sound quality on the VHS version that we viewed was very poor. We missed some of the dialogue, but most of what we heard was not worth hearing. The scenery was beautiful and the house that they built was really cool, but it is not enough to help this film. Don't waste your time on this one. I can't believe that Disney and actors of this caliber could produce this garbage.
