No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The homage to nature pic appeals to youngsters and boy adventurers, but left me yearning for a safer story for a 13-year-old boy.
An absolutely dreadful film that will appeal only to grown-ups who saw it when it was new.
Good family viewing that will delight kids and interest grown-ups as well.
