Vincent Ernest Siders,
Young Jim Craig returns to the Australian high country, after being away herding the horses he caught and sold, in order to provide a stake for his future. He finds things quite different than when he left: his girlfriend, Jessica Harrison, is being pursued by a rich suitor, Jessica's father wants him out of her life, and the residents of the high country are being driven out by the wealthier low country ranchers. Jim definitely has his work cut out for him.Written by

In Disney Channel's 1999-2002 series "So Weird" Season 1 Episode 12 (Coma), "Return to Snowy River" is the featured movie at a theater in the hometown of a woman who is stuck in an alternate reality of her past. The characters use the clue that the movie had come out 11 years previous to help the woman "find her way home" in the childhood version of the town and thus awake from the coma. See more »

You haven't been outside this house in days.
I thought this is where you wanted me -- looking decorative, waiting for the suitors to call.

This movie is the only movie I have ever been to see in the theater where, once the movie was over, everyone (and the place was filled) in the audience was clapping. I was 9/10 at the time, so I wasn't old enough to see the first one in the theaters but I was completely awe-struck and I still am to this day.
This movie, along with its prequel "The Man From Snowy River", are both in my top 10 favorite movies list.
Everyone in the movie was very well-suited for their roles. You loved the right people, hated the right people and forgave the right people.
It's going to continue to be a classic for many decades to come. I give it a 10 out of 10 star, along with its prequel.
It actually came out the same year as another one of my all-time favorites, "Starlight Hotel". Neither of these movies relied on special effects which is another reason the movie is so great. It really feels like you're right there along for the ride.
I recommend this movie to everyone - young, old, male, female. It's definitely worth taking two hours out of your time to watch.
