Continuity: When Ernst and his father come back from a hunt, Ernst puts a bag down on the table that can only be holding one small piglet. However, in the next scene, there are two piglets, not one, roasting on a spit.See more »
Ernst Robinson:Girls. If it weren't for girls, I'd never go back. Would you?
Fritz Robinson:What about books? You'd go back for books.
Ernst Robinson:Well, obviously books! But apart from girls and books...
Fritz Robinson:Music.
Ernst Robinson:True.
Fritz Robinson:So, apart from music, food, books, and girls, you'd stay on our island.
[long pause]
Fritz Robinson:And Jacob.
[long pause]
Fritz Robinson:You know, if he's found his way back to London, he's probably having a wonderful time with the music, food, books, and girls. In fact, he's probably thinking "If it weren't for the music, food, books, and girls, I'd go back there and search for my family."

Great Great Family Movie, 4 October 2007
Author: tunanoonion from United States

This movie is awesome. Why have I only stumbled across it now? Was there no publicity back in 2002? So much better than the normal Hallmark product, which can be over sentimental and fanciful. It's an intelligent re-make of the Swiss Family Robinson's survival story, cleverly avoiding the clunky plot points of the 1960's John Mills film. Shot in Thailand (I think ) the film looks stunning. Beautiful sets, fabulous cast (including a young Jessie Spencer aka Robert Chase in House MD.) There's a reality about their evolution on the island and the magical encounter with a native fisherman. One of their sons Jacob is separated from them during the shipwreck and is adopted by Pirates. This cleverly provides the emotional drive the story needs to get to it's climax. Exciting, moving, rewarding, with excellent direction from Charles Beeson.....just great!
