Movie Info

Even animal lovers may balk at this light, light drama about how a missionary (Genevieve Bujold) and Bobby (Rick Schroder), a young boy manage to populate a deserving island with critters of all types. Noah Dugan (Elliott Gould) is a pilot in need of escaping his creditors and he agrees to fly the animals to their destination. Bobby and the missionary sneak on board and the plane crash-lands on another island on which two Japanese soldiers are still fighting World War II. The story veers ever more into fantasy as the Japanese and the pilot join together to make a boat out of the plane with the goal of taking every animal with them into uncharted waters.

There must be a computer in the Disney studios programmed to produce live-action shooting scripts at the drop of various switches.

Parents know Disney movies are OK to send the kids to because there won't be any nudity or profanity. But isn't it also poisonous for kids to be exposed to stupid characters, lame-brained plots and humorless 'gags?'

It is a formula effort, mixing safe thrills and pleasantries, and is fairly harmless entertainment.

July 16, 2008

Another Disney family film that stresses (to the point of ridiculousness) the importance of treating animals kindly.

Audience Reviews for The Last Flight of Noah's Ark

This is one of my favorite childhood films that I watched non-stop. It's a great story of love, compassion, overcoming obstacles, and having to work in unison to survive. Good wholesome adventure and fun.
