Richard Thomas stars in this amazing tale of a family looking for adventure only to find themselves marooned on a deserted island. Having no means of provision or shelter they struggled to survive against pirates, natives, wild animals and Mother Nature. A movie sure to thrill even youngest in the audience. A story about adventure, love, heartbreak, happiness and human drama, The Adventures Of Swiss Family Robinson is a great adventure for the whole family. Written by
New Zealand TV series, and the accents are pretty noticeable. JUST AWFUL!!!!! Poor acting. Richard Thomas is so miscast and very poor. While Kieran is nice to look at, he seems out of place in this century....more of a today type of guy. Put him in something modern, and watch Brad Pitt quiver. Terrible writing, without even one original idea. Many stock shots (like crabs crawling on the sand) are used over and over again. Even the pirate boat and launch look as though they could have been bought at Sears a few weeks ago. They made 30 episodes of this thing, but fortunately chose only to release 10 of them on video, including the very 1st episode and the last 2 episodes. Lots of rational ideas for today are totally out of place set in this time period.
