Tall Tale is a terrific film with a great story and a good cast of actors. I grew up watching this film, and it's actually one of the better live action Disney films of the 90's. This is a well made film that definitely is fun for all ages. With an effective script, director Jeremiah Chechnik crafts a wonderful film with a great cast. This film is one of a few films that I enjoyed throughout my childhood. The film brings nostalgia to mind when I think of it. Really well done, and lots of fun from start to finish, the film is a wonderful experience for Disney lovers. The story is very well done, and really original. This is by far one of the best live action films that Disney has put out as others such as Jungle 2 Jungle was a horrible, poorly written and directed affair. However this film succeeds at being something special and fun for the entire family. The special effects are well done, and the cast do a fine job in their parts. This along with so many other films such as The Sandlot, Toy Story and Casper were a big part of my childhood. Tall Tale really is a terrific family film worth seeing and is certainly a film that anyone will enjoy. Oliver Platt here steals the show, and his performance was what made the film very enjoyable. Definitely a terrific live action Disney flick, and one of their better titles of the 1990's Lots of fun from start to finish, Tall Tale is wonderful entertainment definitely worth watching.

A decent lie action movie with Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan and others. I like those American Tall Tales.

I missed this film when it originally came out. I finally saw it on Cable and was pleasantly surprised by it. I liked it. Nick Stahl must have done this film right after the Man Without A Face. Stahl is great as the lead. Patrick Swayze also shines as Pecos Bill. Stephen Lang and Scott Glenn provide solid supporting work here. It was cool seeing Jared Harris and William H. Macy in this film, before they became famous. I definitely recommend this film.

If you grew up on those Wonderful World of Disney adventure films then this is the movie for you. If not, go seek them out, then watch this to apperciate where its coming from. More fun and easier going than some of the G fare of today.

This one I like cause they say that legons are not true, but what if they are and with pecos bill, I always wanted to chase twisters and to see old cowboy roping one and riding it, makes you think, what if?

I remember this movie from when I was a kid. I remember being disappointed in John Henry's character, but loving the story....and the shooting off of perople's trigger fingers.

Ambitious but poorly executed fairy tale that while not terrible isn't very good either.

Despite lavish cinematography, some decent action and three American legends (Pecos Bill, John Henry and Paul Bunion) are brought to life terrifically by their performers (including the late great Swayze), Chechik's Wizard of Oz-esque Western ultimately lacks substance, with a flat and dull lead, both character & actor-wise, no exploration of its 'Old vs New World' theme and thus, coming off as narrow-minded and overly-simple, even by Disney standards, and a cop-out Deus Ex-Machina third act that throws out all the established rules and as a result, defeats whatever character arc or responsibility the protagonist had for the sake of simple spectacle.

As a kid this movie captivated and enchanted me with the excellent fantasy and story. Still one of my all time favorite Disney films
