Mostly pleasant father-daughter adventure
26 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

James is dealing with the end of his marriage and the death of his father, and he must also help his daughter Maggie deal with having her life shaken up. So the father and daughter go on a journey where they do much more than fish. Along the way, James gets to 'visit' with his deceased father, James and Maggie learn a lot about each other, and Maggie discovers more about herself by learning about her Native American heritage. Naturally, Maggie gets upset a few times because she doesn't want her parents' marriage to end, but overall it is a pleasant journey.

Except for a nudist couple (who are seen from a distance) and some salty language that I considered unnecessary, this could be regarded as a family movie.

It was a pretty standard TV-movie, but enjoyable. With great scenery.
