Storyline

Jimmy, a young boy trying to gain acceptance from his peers, is horrified when he sees a circus trainer abusing a bear cub. One of the circus employees tells Jimmy that there is a magic cave in the hills nearby that can transport people to another time, and that maybe he can use it to help the bear. Jimmy does some exploring, finds the cave, and is amazed to find himself transported back to the early 1800's where he encounters Jeremiah, a nature-loving mountain man with a bear friend of his own. Jeremiah agrees to come to the future and help out Jimmy, but the 21st century is quite different from the 19th, and springing the bear cub will not be as easy as Jeremiah thinks. Not in any way related to the "Grizzly Adams" television series. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Entertaining Family Film
2 March 2002 | by satterwhSee all my reviews

It stars Dan Haggerty, which should go a long way toward defining the genre. He's made a career from working with bears, so here they are. He's almost created a sub-genre of family film in his own right.

That said, this one fits the mold very well. If you want something you can watch with your kids, this might just be the ticket. The main characters played by Haggerty and Miko Hughes are well acted. Some of the minor characters go over the top, but that's not going to bother the kids.

Keep your expectations reasonable (it's not "Casa Blanca"!) and you'll have an enjoyable evening. I give it a 5.
