Trivia

Except for three notes, the bridge of the song "I Can't Say Goodbye" is identical to that of "Nobody's Problems For Me," one of the three songs excised from the theatrical release of Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971). The Sherman Brothers believed their earlier composition would never be heard again, but it was when Disney reinstated it it in 1996. See more »

Goofs

Jamison takes Lassie to his estate in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she escapes. You see her running, chased by a helicopter, and she finally goes over what looks like a cliff. In the next scene she gets up and limps away, but suddenly she is in Zion National Park, which is in Utah. See more »

Very good lassie movie
13 December 2002 | by The_ValleySee all my reviews

I'm not a fan of the show or any other movies lol but I enjoyed this one. I found it to be somewhat entertaining. The songs are corny and some of the things you'll see in this movie are weird (especially if you're a movie buff and know actors and actresses) and if you have kids they will enjoy it. It's a good family movie. 8/10 stars
