Overview

The story of an intelligent, heroic collie and his young owner, previously featured in numerous films and a successful 1950s television series, was updated for the 1990s in this family feature. This time, Lassie is determined to help a cynical city boy named Matt (Thomas Guiry), who turns even more resentful when his family relocates to a small town in rural Virginia. Soon after this move, a bright collie enters the family's life and winds up with the name Lassie because of the television show, which Matt's younger sister (Brittany Boyd) watches passionately. Lassie sets out to cheer Matt up and introduce him to the wonders of nature, while also helping the family stand its ground against rich, unpleasant neighbors. There are also run-ins with vicious wild animals and a daring rescue over river rapids, but the main focus remains on the emotional relationship between Matt and the dog, a story that will seem old-fashioned and charming to some viewers while familiar and sentimental to others.

This is a wonderful movie I enjoyed and it was well presented. It talks about growing up, fitting in, being accepted, getting along with others. making and keeping friends, remorse, love, the meaning of family and Lassie does a wonderful job in turning this cynical city boy around. The Turner family made a wise choice, a smart decision and a good choice to move out of Baltimore because life in Baltimore has been becoming increasingly complex, so crowded, so stressful, so crowded, so crime-ridden and an undesirable place for families to raise children. In that Virginia small town the the Turner family made a good choice to move there because of the low crime rate, not so rushed, way less stressful, much less expensive and a much better environment for families to raise children. Matt had a lot to learn and it was Lassie that helped him learn about nature, how to make new friends his age, to live a positive lifestyle and Lassie became a major part of the Turner family.

whew..i love this story so much.. though honestly, speaking i don't really into dogs as a pet but with this, with lassie he's a wonderful dog that i want to have. he's like a shining armor dog that when times you got lonely he's there feeling your loneliness deep within him but he takes that away from you and let you think and realize that life turns around. you don't have to get easily lose hope... animals are really like human they can also feel what humans do.though they can't really react or say with words but through thier actions you could see and understand why GOD create animals to be with us - humans. In life, every living things has a purpose in this worls it depends on you on how you face it. see for yah self guys... i'm pretty sure you'll gonna love it!! heheh.. :)
