Storyline

Young Jim Craig returns to the Australian high country, after being away herding the horses he caught and sold, in order to provide a stake for his future. He finds things quite different than when he left: his girlfriend, Jessica Harrison, is being pursued by a rich suitor, Jessica's father wants him out of her life, and the residents of the high country are being driven out by the wealthier low country ranchers. Jim definitely has his work cut out for him. Written by Marinelle K. Szenasy

Trivia

In Disney Channel's 1999-2002 series "So Weird" Season 1 Episode 12 (Coma), "Return to Snowy River" is the featured movie at a theater in the hometown of a woman who is stuck in an alternate reality of her past. The characters use the clue that the movie had come out 11 years previous to help the woman "find her way home" in the childhood version of the town and thus awake from the coma. See more »

Goofs

When Harrison has left to find Jessica after she tells him she is going to speak to Jim, we see Harrison riding over a hill with a number of riders behind him. However, Jake and the other mountain men are in the group with Harrison, when they are actually in town having a beer at the tavern. This is because the scene was used from the final chase scene of the movie when everyone is in pursuit of Alistair Patton. Furthermore, when Harrison finds Jessica, he has only two other men with him when he says, "You two can head on back." See more »

A ghastly mistake
23 March 2007 | by ladamson1918See all my reviews

The original movie, Man From Snowy River, is one of the best I've seen, nearly perfect. A Lady and the Tramp storyline in two senses--rich girl/poor boy, and ability vs. bloodline. The sequel, however, is not only a shameless attempt to capitalize on the good name of the original but also a ridiculous, overblown Disneyfied mess best summarized as "Rambo Meets the Black Stallion." Without the charm of The Black Stallion. The young hero comes back from a 3-year absence, and suddenly he's Superman on horseback; in the original, good film, he was real and believable, but sadly reduced to a caricature in the sequel. I've hardly been as disappointed in a movie, and at times this thing made me quite angry--they missed hardly a cliché. Brazen audience manipulation--do studio heads think that all you have to do with a horse-loving audience is put pretty horses in front of them, to make them happy? A mess of a movie.
