One for the "Saturday Morning Picture Show"
17 February 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is the sort of movie kids would loved to have seen at the saturday morning picture show thirty years ago. A nice adventure featuring a couple of young kids - enjoyable family fare. Add in a dinosaur for some "post-Jurrasic Park" credibility. I'm not sure what an actor of Plummer's calibre is doing in there, but the story is the thing here. Good drama, happy ending, nicely executed. Not a cinematic classic, and I doubt I'd go out of my way to rent it, but it'll babysit a ten year old for an hour and a bit.
