Movie Info

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, Disney's 1993 remake of the 1963 hit The Incredible Journey, follows three household pets as they travel across mountains and plains on their way to find their owners. A misunderstanding leads the animals to mistakenly believe that they have been abandoned by their loved ones, when in reality they have been left in the care of a friend while the family has moved from the country to the city for the father to take a temporary assignment . All three pets--a golden retriever (Don Ameche), a cat (Sally Field), and a bulldog puppy (Michael J. Fox)--can talk, and they bicker and crack jokes as they set off on a truly incredible journey chock full of misadventures as they wend their way back to their owners.

My animal-movie loving mania continues. I seem to remember a black and white version of this movie, but maybe I'm hallucinating nostalgia. I definitely read the book. It's a great story--what animal lover doesn't fear being separated from a beloved pet and then doesn't fantasy about that pet finding their way back to you? It bordered on sentimentality (it is Disney after all) but I cried at the end so there you have it.

It's the rare remake that works and improves upon its inspiration. I grew up with this film and I still cry every time I watch it. So much care was put into making this film, and it sucessfully respects the original and doesn't try to be hip for the new generation audience but rather goes in the better direction of good storytelling. The voice acting is also well done so there isn't really anything to dislike about Homeward Bound.

Homeward Bound-The Incredible Journey is the perfect family film. The film may not be flawless, but for what it is, it's a fun, charming film that kids and adults can enjoy. The film is good fun. The voice talents are good in their parts, and you see that they have fun with the material. Homeward Bound is a fun family film for anyone looking for good entertainment. The film has a good story, a good cast and good adventure. Homeward Bound is a good film that the entire family can enjoy. With a good cast, this film is worth watching, and this is simply an amusing film. The film may not be perfect, but it's entertaining enough to appeal to the family, and it's simply a good adventure film. The film is charming and the cast do a good job with their parts. The script is well written, and the film succeeds at being a piece of nostalgia from your childhood, that is if you've seen it when you were younger. The voice over of the animals is a clever touch, and considering that this film came out around the same time as Beethoven, this is a far better family film with a better story, better acting, and above all, much more original concept. This the better film to watch and unlike Beethoven, which is tiring, stupid, and poorly constructed, Homeward Bound is still a good film after all these years. The film is very enjoyable whether you're a child or not, and it's an adventurous story that will appeal to the child in all of us.
