a great family movie, 20 February 2005
Author: mbbc-1 from United States

This was the first movie my husband and I saw together. We both thought it was a wonderful movie about family values. It may not have been the best made of the year, but it is worth keeping around to show future generations. I would love to be able to get a copy for my family! The movie starts out with a family problem. The children set out on a journey to fine their father who is missing. Along the way they overcome several obstacles and do much life learning. They learn how to depend on each other and themselves and the value of family. It also shows us that society is sometimes wrong in their approach to family crisis. Sometimes it seems necessary to do what is right, not what the courts say.
