Editorial Reviews

Jonathan Taylor Thomas (HOME IMPROVEMENT) stars as America's greatest teenage hero -- Tom Sawyer! No boy ever had so much fun, got into so much trouble, or had so many outrageous adventures! Disney's magic touch now turns Mark Twain's masterpiece into "An outstanding classic adventure film" (Kids News Network). Tom and his rebellious friend Huck (Brad Renfro) witness a midnight killing. They swear not to reveal what they saw -- but that causes a real problem. If Tom doesn't speak up, an innocent friend may be hanged. But if he does tell the truth, the real killer, knife-throwing Injun Joe, will come after him! TOM AND HUCK has it all -- a treasure hunt, a haunted house, a courtroom showdown, a scary chase in a cave, and a valuable lesson for young Tom: when a friend's in trouble, you don't run away! Now one of the world's great stories becomes a great addition to your family's Disney library!

4.0 out of 5 stars Any Version of "Tom Sawyer" Would Be Good November 13, 2005
Format:DVD
I am unsure of how many versions of "Tom Sawyer" that I have seen, regardless, nearly every one had its charms as does this version. While this version plays more as a vehicle for Jonathon Taylor Thomas and Brad Renfro, the story still plays out much like Mark Twain's original.

This movie launches very quickly into the murder of Doc Robinson (William Newman) by Injun Joe (Eric Schweig). Injun Joe has pinned the blame on poor Muff Potter (Michael McShane) by using his knife. We know, however, that Tom Sawyer (Thomas) and Huckleberry Finn (Brad Renfro) were watching. We also know that Huck has made a pact with Tom to never tell anyone about what they saw. However, Tom is conflicted because he genuinely likes Muff Potter, and somehow he feels that he can not leave him to take the blame for Injun Joe's crime.

While I do not wish to make light of this movie, we know the general story. Injun Joe threatens Tom and tells Tom that he will kill him if he tells what he knows. Of course, Tom ultimately does tell, but Injun Joe escapes the courthouse, and Tom will be in fear of Injun Joe until he is caught or killed. Eventually the movie ends up in Mark Twain Cave (at least, that was the original setting), where Becky Thatcher (the gloriously beautiful Rachael Lee Cook), Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn have it out with Injun Joe.

This movie retains a reasonable amount of Twain's original story. However, because the movie barely clocks in with 97 minutes, the story is substantially shortened with little of the significant detail that Twain put into his book. There is a reasonable amount of humor in the movie to take the edge off the drama, with the famous church scene being one of the best scenes until after Tom was discovered, when the scene began to go downhill.

Format:VHS Tape
When I watch a Tom Sawyer movie, or a Huck Finn movie, I'm wanting to have fun, that's all. That's why I love 'em. Maybe from Huck I expect some touching moments, but throw Tom in and I expect 99% fun. That's why I love the movies so much more than the books! This movie is easy to play off as a film targeted at Jr. High girls, with the hopes that boys will come for the adventure angle. Well, it probably didn't work out because girls just don't seem interested in the characters of Tom and Huck, no matter who the actors are, and sadly, boys nowadays just don't care about the classic characters of Tom and Huck either. I guess there just aren't enough guns and aliens. I think only the really loyal JTT and Renfro fans went to see this, and a few guys like me, who just find Tom and Huck movies so much fun! Oh, and of course Rachael Leigh Cooke is in it! On that note, I'll say, this movie was very successful! I found it quite fun! JTT doesn't seem to have had the staying power as a heartthrob now that he's grown, but to say he was miscast was all wrong. He was great. I though maybe Renfro looked a bit too old for Huck, but I think that's because I LOVE the Elijah Wood version of Huck Finn, and he was pretty darn young in that. By the way, for the best version of Huck I've seen so far, get the Elijah Wood one, I've nearly worn mine out. If you're looking for a version true to the books, forget it. They're too controversial and frankly, have some really long boring parts, therefore I doubt a movie that's true to the books will ever be made. Anyway, as for this version, sure, it's a little obvious it's targeted at young kids, but actually, it will probably be more enjoyable for those who just like fun Tom Sawyer stories. Oh, here are two things to check out. One, the wonderful music! Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars The kids loved it December 16, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I thoroughly enjoyed this adaptation of 'Tom Sawyer' and so did my Year 9 class (13 yr olds). After reading the novel I, initially, showed my class the musical version. Well...they were beside themselves...not a MUSICAL!! They HATED it and thought Tom was a bit of a "dick".
One of the kids recommended this version and so I showed it to them. They LOVED it!! They thought Tom and Huck were great and that Becky was a "babe".
Some of the details were different from the novel but the essence of the story was there. My favourite scene was there - the infamous 'whitewashing' incident and it was just as funny as it was in the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of those childhood classics June 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
It's a fun movie -- starring some 1990's young teen heart-throbs. Even young kids can watch without being traumatized by violence. Fun for nostalgia!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing 45% of the picture April 24, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I love "Tom and Huck", Disney's 1995 adaptation of Mark Twain's undeniably fun novel "Adventures of Tom Sawyer." This film version is mostly faithful to the text, and more importantly captures the tone and spirit of Twain's world of Hannibal, Missouri. There is Stephen Endelman's irresistibly lush score that successfully captures the adventure, suspense, and playlike nature of our protagonists using instruments like banjos and harmonicas. The performances are solid all along, most notably by the stars Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Brad Renfro, and character actor Michael McShane as Muff Potter.
The 2.35:1 photography would be wonderful for the young at heart (of any age) to revisit again and again in the pristine quality that the DVD format offers. But alas, the DVD is Pan & Scan, and the entire time, you're losing 45% of the picture. It's really awful seeing such beautiful photography destroyed to fit the dimensions of the soon-to-be-extinct 4 x 3 television set.
If you like the story or this film version, you owe it to yourself to either track down the 2.35:1 widescreen laserdisc, or wait for Disney to do this film right in the next home video format or a European DVD release. This DVD is just plain awful, and is clearly meant to insult the intelligence of viewers who Disney suspects won't notice or care. Show them you're sharper than that and pass on this.
