Yuppie For Ransom
3 January 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The Lawrence Brothers are involved in another family project for the Disney company in Jumping Ship. The same two characters that Joey and Andy Lawrence played in Horse Sense are having some more adventures. If I may say so, some more serious adventures.

In Horse Sense Joey was a cousin of Andy who helped save his cousin's ranch. But there he was only facing some business sharks. Some real sharks can be a problem as the cousins take a trip down under.

Brother Matt joins them and his hair is dyed blond possibly to disguise a rather obvious family resemblance. He's a young charter boat captain and the boat isn't exactly Club Med type accommodations. That's because Joey's dad has put some limits on his free spending yuppie son. But on their Australian vacation, Joey and Andy attract the attention of some pirates who think that Joey might be worth a few bucks when he starts flashing money around.

They all wind up on a deserted tropical island and have to fend for themselves and at this point the movie is a combination of The Admirable Crichton and Swiss Family Robinson. The Aussie and island scenery is quite lovely to behold and so are the two older Lawrence brothers. All in all a pleasant piece of viewing.
