Audience Reviews for Courage Mountain

Movie on Heidi in the Swiss. The music is a nice touch, and the story is decent. Charlie Sheen made a suprising addition to this adventure movie when Heidi and her friends are forced to escape into the swiss alps when a deranged Child Slave Maniac is hot on their trails determined to keep the girls from returning back into Switzerland. It's a definite must see.

Super Reviewer

Say what you will, but I liked it, even if Charlie Sheen does appear in the Swiss alps via American accent.

The older I get the sillier and worse this movie becomes. I loved it as a teen girl...but now years later, its become kind of a cute concept with little else going for it.
