When Angelino Jack Robinson gets a new job in Australia, he decides to take his wife Ann, sons Shane and Todd and daughter Elisabeth 'Lizzy' by sailing yacht from Hong Kong to Syndney. The gun he gets thrown in by Sheldon Blake proves disabled, and for a sinister reason: near Borneo, Blake's men turn up to capture them. The family escapes but loses the yacht on a reef. They build a cool camp on an island. But the pirates keep coming back, and the boys discover why: he hid a treasure in the yacht. Shane is also discovered and captured in more than one way by French plane wreck survivor Françoise, who later teams up with the family. Written by KGF Vissers

Reminds me a little of The Last Flight Of Noah's Ark
21 October 2002 | by dtucker86See all my reviews

I pretty much enjoy anything in it with Jane Seymour. This is a good family film that shows how a loving family can come together and overcome anything, even pirates and shark attacks! The theme of people being shipwrecked sort of reminded me of The Last Flight Of Noah's Ark which in my opinion is the best Disney film ever made! This is a beautiful film to look at and the animals are really funny. There is also a wonderful scene where Jane is sick and throwing up in a big bucket that is really funny. A nice way to waste two hours.
