Right now I am glad I decided to check out family films for down the road, because it's introducing me to films like this that I would have loved to see even if I had no kids!
And... so many people in this film were gorgous yet had interesting looks. The three sons, very very hot. The mother was breathtaking, and the young blond girls were stunning. I couldn't help but mention that!
After seeing this movie on VHS from the rental store, I'm posting my order now from Amazon for the DVD. I don't care if there are no extras (which I hardly utilize anyway)-- the movie is worth the price.
UPDATE: I wanted to add that I have now viewed this on my new DVD, and the film is breathtaking. Crisp and clear, this makes me never want to see a VHS tape again after seeing the difference. Before it was the story and acting that drew me in, but now the scenery adds so much in this clearer view on the DVD. I just want to repeat, this is no cheesy family film-- buy it for yourself!
His wife, two older sons and a daughter land on the island with him. He being bound for the convict island of Australia.
A younger son, Jacob, had been put on a small boat escaping the wrecking of the ship. He is not reunited with his family for 7 years.
The one son is always going against his father's decisions if he makes better sense of his own instincts. But the boys seem to work well with each other.
Oh yes, there is an involuntary drop-off of another female to confuse the issue. And daddy is hot on her trail. Well, the trail of the pirates anyway.
Then they meet a native [great body] and he helps them and also helps save Laura? And becomes a saving factor in the end.
The pirate Captian is a scoundrel and always putting the moves on Robinson's wife. He also turns Jake, the Robinson's son into a pirate.
Those pirates provide plenty of action - not necessarily good.
The rescue and resolution was all that was hoped for.
The actors were excellent - the scenery was spectacular - the story a classic - and definitely a credit to the Hallmark trademark
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - great family movie -- tons of color - [grin, lots of water]
I bought this thinking it would be the 120 minute version that Amazon states. Sometimes things work out for the worse, but this time I was pleasantly surprised with the 180 minute version. I had to get that out because it allowed a lot of sub-plots that I can imagine were cut. We get to see how the Robinsons learned to subsist, as well as how the one son got along, being away from the family for all of those years. In fact, these were not just brief moments of showing what was going on in the son's life, but there were whole new plots involved that made this a very fulfilling movie and well worth the time invested. I could not name one of the actors in the movie. I did note someone named Liam. I could reach ten inches from here and grab the info, but the names would still mean little to me. That's sort of the point. Good acting, though maybe not great, and parts that were written from story, not thinking, "well, since we have Brad Pitt (who?), we'll have to throw in some meaty lines, inside jokes, and modern humour." Thank you, no. I'll take this type of well done production any day of the week.
Next time I need to sip some tea and get lost into a beautiful, exotic dream, this movie will be at the top of the list.

I thought it was better than Swiss Family Robinson. There wasn't a dull moment, and the acting was great! It was filmed in Krabi, Thailand.Published on March 15, 2014 by sixties tv freak
