If a good children's film is supposed to open the eyes of its young audience, then the somewhat misleadingly titled "Tall Tale: The Unbelievable Adventures of Pecos Bill" is mighty good.

The story, told with energy and humor, is aimed at family audiences, and should appeal to all but the smallest of children.
