Overview

Even animal lovers may balk at this light, light drama about how a missionary (Genevieve Bujold) and Bobby (Rick Schroder), a young boy manage to populate a deserving island with critters of all types. Noah Dugan (Elliott Gould) is a pilot in need of escaping his creditors and he agrees to fly the animals to their destination. Bobby and the missionary sneak on board and the plane crash-lands on another island on which two Japanese soldiers are still fighting World War II. The story veers ever more into fantasy as the Japanese and the pilot join together to make a boat out of the plane with the goal of taking every animal with them into uncharted waters.

I saw this when it came out in the summer of 1980.It's typical post-Walt-era Disney stuff.Good light,enjoyable family fun.

I liked the story. It was exciting and the ingenuity of the characters in what they did to escape was very interesting and innovative. Although this is a good Disney movie and exciting-edge-of-your-seat at times, I am very disappointed in Disney Studios in that being rated G, there are several spots of mild profanity....it must have been filmed after Walt Disney passed away, because he would have never allowed that. I guess G ratings aren't what they used to be. I would reccommend this movie if you can get pased the bits profanity.

Okay, I admit I'm biased. My grandparents sold all of the fruit used in the film to the producers :-D So it's a family joke that my grandfather's bananas were fed to the ox. But overall this turned out to be one of Disney's lost wonders, a movie that didn't do big in the box office yet is memorable enough to be a cult classic. If you haven't seen it, at least find a place to rent it. You may become a fan, too.
