Goofs

When the Turner family goes to the county fair, they take Lassie too. It would be highly unlikely that you would see a dog roaming around a fair without being on leash. Normally, you are not allowed to bring the family dog unless you are showing the dog in competition. See more »

A True Family Classic
22 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie was one of my favorites when I was younger. I am now 21 years old and I still love it and watch it whenever it comes on cable. The original concept of Lassie never really appealed to me, I guess because it was slightly before my time. However, I thought this movie brought the spirit of the original Lassie to kids who never got to experience Lassie when it was at it's best.

The main actor Thomas Guiry, who played the troubled Matt Turner, truly carried this film. He was also quite fortunate to be surrounded by other great actors such as Michelle Williams and Charlie Hofheimer.

I really loved this story because it expressed the true values of family and unconditional love. I recommend this film to families, children, and adults alike. I still love this movie and probably always will. I give it a 9 out of 10.
