Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

What were they thinking..?
2 January 2004 | by PercursioSee all my reviews

This movie begs the question: was it made by a Film School as a worst-case scenario as to what will happen if you sleep in class? One would think that Disney had the resources to avoid a thoroughly mindless disaster like this. Watch it only if you're a film student or if you like to slap you forehead constantly for 90 minutes.
