Editorial Reviews

Screen favorite Patrick Swayze (GHOST, DIRTY DANCING, POINT BREAK) stars in the fun-filled, action-packed hit TALL TALE: THE UNBELIEVABLE ADVENTURE. There's rousing, rollicking adventure as the dynamic Pecos Bill (Swayze) teams with larger-than-life heroes Paul Bunyan and John Henry to help a brave young man in the fight against a greedy land-grabber (Scott Glenn -- BACKDRAFT, HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER) who'll stop at nothing to get his hands on the deed to the youngster's family farm. Together, they set out on the incredible journey of a lifetime, where there's action, excitement -- and danger -- around every turn! Packed with fun and adventure in legendary proportion, TALL TALE is a rip-roaring good time that's sure to entertain everyone!

Lot's of action to keep my husband awake. A wonderful excursion through several legendary names ie:Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry ect. This movie does a great job of presenting solid values like Honor, Trust, Doing the right thing, and commitment. I also found that this movie did an excellent job of avoiding the traps of foul language and sex. There is fighting and shooting, old west style. It doesn't get gorey or out of proportion to the storyline. All around as a conservative Christian mother I must say that this is a wonderful movie for the whole family.

This movie grows on me more and more each time I watch it. It would be worth watching just for spectacular scenes like John Henry holding back a locomotive single-handed, or Pecos Bill lassoeing and riding a twister. It has more, though. It has the Code of the West ( Respect the land, defend the defenseless, and never spit in front of women or children.) It also has the message to never let "progress" bulldoze the dream of what is right, and good, and true.

It used to confuse me that the West was embodied in Pecos Bill, the North in Paul Bunyan, and the South in John Henry, while the East was unrepresented. Then it hit me. The East is represented by the villains, the frock-coated, carpet-bagging, Yankee reptiles that are out to destroy the land. After all, as the chief villain points out, there is no Code of the East- only Profit at any cost....

Alot of this film isn't exactly "politically correct." It actually shows, fighting, gun-toting, drinking, and cigar smoking. Why, if a youngster was to watch it, there is some small chance that he might actually grow up to be a ...MAN!

Great for all ages, more movies like this one need to be made. I enjoyed the old stories so well, I am buying it for my grandkids. Also getting them the books, these stories need to be kept alive.

I teach 2nd and 3rd grade in CA. Part of our Language Arts curriculum is to study tall tales, and so, after learning all about tall tales; history, make up, and the famous American ones, we watched this movie. It was the perfect culmination.

Two things I would think about before watching the movie though:

1) Children can just watch the movie and enjoy it, but they will get so much more out of it if they know the tall tales behind the characters-Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, Calamity Jane.

2) There is some violence in the movie. Not violence for violence sake, and no blood spurting, but definitely guns and punching in the manner of the "Old West" movies of the 50's.

Format: DVD
Daniel Hackett(Nick Stahl) saves a small farming community from greedy land grabbers with the help of 3 legendary characters Pecos Bill(Patrick Swayze), Paul Bunyan(Oliver Platt) and John Henry(Roger Aaron Brown). Daniel's father(Stephen Lang) has told him the fables of these charatcers yet he refuses to believe until he is in desperate need of help. With the help of his new found friends Daniel saves the day. This movie is set in the mis to late 1800s I suppose and was a joy to watch. Cameo appearances are made by Burgess Meredith(Mickey from the Rocky movies) and Catherine O'Hara who plays Calamity Jane.
This movie is suitable for all ages and is an excellent fantasy/adventure film.

My family has watched this film numerous times and never grow tired of it. It is very well done. A tale well told. Fun and actually teaches a few things along the way. Patrick Swazey is terrific in this movie. We love it.

This is a great movie,one of my favorites,
but Disney did a terrible transfer to dvd.
It only seems to have vhs resolution,and it
is only in full screen (clipped) instead of
wide screen giving the full picture the way
it was made!

Patrick Swazye, Oliver Platt, and Roger Aaron Brown help Nick Stahl fight off three grave robbers and save his farm from being part of a railroad indusutury. When I watched it for the first time I thought it deserved 5 stars.
