When Angelino Jack Robinson gets a new job in Australia, he decides to take his wife Ann, sons Shane and Todd and daughter Elisabeth 'Lizzy' by sailing yacht from Hong Kong to Syndney. The gun he gets thrown in by Sheldon Blake proves disabled, and for a sinister reason: near Borneo, Blake's men turn up to capture them. The family escapes but loses the yacht on a reef. They build a cool camp on an island. But the pirates keep coming back, and the boys discover why: he hid a treasure in the yacht. Shane is also discovered and captured in more than one way by French plane wreck survivor Françoise, who later teams up with the family. Written by
A Movie that Will Insult the Intelligence of Everyone in Your Family
Disney has stooped low before, for example the remake of South Pacific but this is just low. I decided to give the movie a chance after all I do fondly remember the original Swiss Family Robinson. This movie sucked plain and simple. If Jane Seymor's career wasn't dying already this movie just gave it a good shot in the foot with a rusty bullet. The acting is horrible the actors especially the swiss family children are completely obnoxious. One would have to be a complete moron not to get this movie. If I were a child I would divorce my parents if that made me watch this crap. What happened to Disney? I think its Michael Eisner and his quest for family values. Walt Disney is rolling in his grave over this one.
