    The child in me loves this movie as I watched this a lot when I was a kid. The adult in me......thinks this is bad.

    Albeit a clumsily-produced, dated picture with an unfocused narrative, there's a lot of good here in this novel idea of bringing together some of the most beloved folk heroes into one linear story. Amidst the more poignant moments is a discussion about how technology will one day mask the stars in the sky and, with that scene, a reminder of how much Patrick Swayze is missed. I reckon there's room here to revive this concept into a TV or film franchise - I know I'd watch.

    I loved this movie as a kid, and I refuse to rewatch it under my cynical adult eyes, where I'm sure I'd be more inclined to agree with the other reviews on here.

    Kid teams with folk heroes to save the family farm in this flat attempt at family fantasy.

    Now, I saw part of this at school when I was a child (I'm now in my mid-twenties) and I really love action-adventure and or certain fantasy films (whether it's Disney or non-Disney). Patrick Swayze gives an amazing performance as Pecos Bill. I mean it's just a good film that will take your breath away and it took my breath away. If you enjoy films like this, you are in for a HIGH FLYING treat. I know I was (and always am when I watch this).

    Ambitious but poorly executed fairy tale that while not terrible isn't very good either.

    I only saw this movie once as a kid and I have no interest in revisiting it.
