Not sure what it is about this movie, my kids love it back in the 80's, watching in repeatedly. Finally found a copy in 2009. My grans LOVE this movie as much as their parents!

Like most kids my age, I was perfectly willing to abandon life as I knew it and find a way to purposely maroon myself on an uncharted tropical island, understanding as I did that this would entail living in the equivalent of Malibu James Bond's Beach House. Everything about the movie made it seem like the destiny of every child with imagination was to create a world of tree houses and coconut grenades - what's the lethality of a coconut fragmentation explosive, anyway? It had all the elements of that other Disney classic, Peter Pan, sans the flying and magic, only live action. It all seemed so real! The wonderful treehouse, the island, the race, and the defense against the pirates are all very prominent memories in my childhood, and anytime I get to feeling nostalgic, I put it in the player and live the dream again.

I think that Swiss Family Robinson is very interesting and exciting. One of my best parts is when they built the treehouse. I also think it has a very good ending. The actors are very good. The pirate scenes are scary!
