It seems many people have slated this movie, and I'm not entirely sure why. As long as one keeps the movie within the context of a film for children, I don't see what the problem is.
I agree that the script is rather weak - there isn't much for the actors to go on. All in all, I think Whoopi Goldberg and Michael York do a good job in trying to bring as much life in to their parts as they can. Let's face it, if you are looking for a great 'emmy award winning film' then, naturally, you won't like this at all.
However, what most people seem to have missed is this very important point - it's a film for CHILDREN. In a world where films/cartoons seem to be incredibly violent, isn't it great to find a movie which encourages us to be open-minded and treat each other as equals - what a great message for children.
