good family fun-
24 August 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Its a shame that most people think of Ricki as just a trash tv host. She is actually a very fine actress and proves it in this fun, warm, family film. To me its a treat to even HEAR Blythe Danner's voice as Mrs. Murphy. Simon Wincer (who directed Lonesome Dove and Free Willy) sure had a challenging task here making it look like the animals were really talking, but it works. Theres really not much of a mystery here, not even a real sense of danger or suspense, however this film is good clean Disney fun. The kids will love it!
