A fun adventure for adolecent kids
16 July 2002 | by (Brentwood, California) – See all my reviews

This Movie stars all of the three Lawrence brothers. Andy has grown a lot since the last movie, "Horse Sense". Joey and Matt stayed about the same, though. I have seen this film numerous times and I enjoy it every time. I have to say that after reading other reviews that I like both movies equally. "Horse Sense" has a lot more people in it, has a more familiar surrounding, and more of a story. In "Jumping Ship" all they do is shipwreck on an island to put it bluntly. I has much more action than the first and more scarier scenes. The movies are totally different and the only comparison is that they share the same characters. What is also good about "Jumping Ship" is that the plot is not predictable. It is very suspenseful and interesting. But it could have possibly been just as good if they would have used a crowd of three other brothers so that the Lawrences would not be in so many movies. But their expertise was needed and it is an adventure flick that everyone should sit through once. It is probably the most fun for kids 7-13 years of age, but Adults would like it too.
