Good family movie. NO cussing, No sex
24 May 2000 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie that has beautiful film locations. It does not contain cussing or have sex scenes. It is just a great family movie. The only problem is it is not on video about the only place to see it is on Fox family television.
