This Is The Best Lassie Movie.
25 February 2002 | by (Hindman KY) – See all my reviews

The Last Time I Seen This Movie Was On Nick Several Years Ago And I Taped It. I Really Enjoy Watching Lassie A New Beginning. When The Kids, Sally And Her Little Brother Chip Goes Out By Themselves After Their Grandma Dies Trying To Reach Uncle Stuart They Go Through A Tough Time. The Dog Catcher Takes Lassie And Lassie Breaks Out And Wakes Sally Up Knocking On The Window. Sally Steps On Chip To Wake Him Up And The Kids With Lassie And Another Dog Takes Off. Many Things Goes On In This Movie I Can't Explain The Kids Wrecks Another Police Car, An Army Base Shoots At The Kids, And Chip Gets Bit By A Rattle Snake Sally Tries To Save Chips Life By Cutting His Leg And Getting The Poison Out. But Lassie Saves Their Life By Bringing Uncle Stuart To Them And Hope They Will Live Happy Ever After.

I Don't Know If This Movie Will Air Again. To See It You May Want To Call, Or Email Any TV Networks And Request Lassie, A New Beginning. This Is A Good Family, Action Film, Everybody Will Enjoy.
