Audience Reviews for On Our Own


Perhaps my nostalgia is clouding my judgment, but I still love this film from my childhood when I rewatched it recently. It's a compelling story about four siblings whose mother has just died and are about to be separated and put into foster homes, but decide to run away to Arizona to find Uncle Jack and perhaps their father, and in the process get in all sorts of trouble (Like stealing cars and gas) and meet new people on their journey. This is still a heartfelt film since the acting is great, even from the child actors, making this film feel convincing. It can be a bit corny at times, but it's still an immensely enjoyable family film.

I remember seeing this as a kid and enjoying it. So I finally found out what the title was by just scanning through salvation army and recognizing that the movie was in fact the one I remember watching as a kid. Refreshing my memory and figuring out why I liked it as a kid was fun. The nostalgic factor really helped me enjoy the picture but it was a fun and entertaining story. Glad I relived my childhood memories of the film. Also I enjoyed the soundtrack. The songs sung were frickin awesome. The movie I had was edited so I am kind of interested to see what they really see and if I can get myself on an unedited version.

When their mother dies, four children fight to stay together. Watching the story fold out is pretty fun...it begins with sirens blaring and lots of lights. Something about it looms with the excitement/wonder of childhood. Fun music by the Osmonds, and a very happy ending. May be a bit cheesy, but it's the good kind of cheese.
