Critic Reviews for The Legend of Johnny Lingo
If the narrative is unsteady, the acting is even shakier.
This exotic little New Zealand film about an outcast island boy is full of surprises that will make even the grumpiest viewer crack a smile.
The movie's G rating, and its message that even the roughest of edges can be smoothed away to reveal a wonderful person, make for ideal family entertainment, as long as you can get past the corniness.
The whole affair comes off as an after-school special filmed in the rainforest.
Audience Reviews for The Legend of Johnny Lingo
Yes it has a good message, and it is a great show for famlies and kids but for an adult this movie was so corny that it was hard to get into. The acting was quite stale and that really hurt the movies overall effect as well. The older version is much better but even that one isn't very good.
That I love the beach is obvious! I can't get enough of seaside locations, but this movie also has a really nice story.
The six-cow wife story is quite interesting. I think it's good to know that a girl, or any person should see their own individual worth and not let another be demeaning over them.
