When Noah Dugan agrees to fly missionary Bernadette Lafleur and her cargo of animals to a remote island, its only because he is on the run from a couple of bookies. What neither of them know is that two of Miss Lafleur's young students have stowed away with the animals & Miss Lafleur's transistor radio has interfered with the plane's instruments and they're all now miles off course. After a forced landing on a remote island, Dugan, Bernadette, Bobby and Julie discover that they are not alone. Together with two Japanese soldiers who have been stranded on the island since WWII, they must turn the plane into a seaworthy boat if they are ever to make it home. When Bobby and Julie insist that they cannot leave the animals behind, the converted plane truly becomes a second Noah's ArkWritten by

This is a very typical Disney family film (the way they used to do it those days) with very few surprises. The film also can't make up its mind if it wants to be a comedy or drama, and wants to appeal to a young or mature demographic. It would work best for a young demographic, as they are not so sensitive to predictability and a plot not taken seriously. The character actions are lackluster to say the least - especially from main character Noah (Elliott Gould). They also seem to through caution to the wind for the sake of a family adventure. Nothing here is credible. If you just want a fun adventure film for a lazy Sunday afternoon, then maybe this is your cup of tea.
