Storyline

An animated, musical version of Mark Twain's classic novel about the adventures of Tom Sawyer, along with his friends Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher. While spending most of his days avoiding school, work and his Aunt Polly, Tom manages to get himself into trouble on a regular basis. This trouble turns serious, though, when he and Huck witness Injurin' Joe commit a terrible crime and place the blame on his friend, Muff Potter. Though the two boys are terrified of what Joe might do to them, they know that the only way to save Muff is to tell the truth about what they have seen.

Wonderful
10 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I personally could have done without the dream sequence at the beginning as I found it rather distracting and didn't see the point of it, plus I don't get why Tom had such spindly legs and neck in this sequence when he doesn't in the rest of the movie. Anyway, other than that the story is very engaging and while it's been a long time since I read the book in its entirety, from what I remember this is a surprisingly faithful adaptation that keeps the strong narrative and appealing characters. I'm normally not a big fan of love triangles but it's done well with Tom, Becky, and Amy and I'm very glad that she was included here. Although I don't particularly care for the dream sequence animation, the rest of the animation is quite nice, soft and bright but not overly bright, on both the characters and the backgrounds. It's also a nice surprise that MGM, which, Wizard of Oz aside, has mostly been involved with DTV sequels such as An All Dogs Christmas Carol, so it's nice to see them produce a (somewhat) original story. I also really enjoy the songs such as Friends For Life, Hook, Line, And Sinker, and Dream.
