Trivia

After the release of The Shootist (1976), John Wayne saw 'Ron Howard' at a party and told him "I have this movie for the both of us. It's you and me or nobody." Ron Howard stated that one of his great regrets in life was John Wayne not living to do this movie. Ricky Schroder plays the part intended for Ron Howard. See more »

Fairly bad all around
20 May 2008 | by BKinzeysSee all my reviews

Poor direction, acting, costumes, sets, story. Wilford Brimley turns in the worst acting job I have seen him do. Rick Schroder does the same. The storyline just plods along with little more motivation than the script. Shot in Canada there are some pretty vistas but the cheap sets in the foreground detract.

This may be a TV Movie made on the cheap and it looks it. Puzzling choices were made as well. The boat for one. Somebody did a nice job stretching canvas (hides?) over a boat frame. What about the size though? It's twice the size, possibly triple, of a boat to be used by one person. It's just out of place as so much is in this movie.

I watched the whole thing hoping it would get better but it didn't.
