Neither magical nor much of an adventure
30 March 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 3/30/2001 - 3 out of 10(Dir-Patrick Dempsey & Rocky Parker): Ava's magical adventure was neither magical nor much of an adventure. Especially when it's claimed for the emotionless elephant named Ava who is the star of the title(not the picture). This was a badly done attempt to make a movie out of a Mark Twain story called "Stolen White Elephant."(I sure hope his story was better than this movie.) The only thing redeemable was the character that Georg Stanford Brown plays as an escaped convict who befriends the young child who abducts the elephant. The movie seemed confused from the beginning as far as what it wanted to do. At times it was a silly comedy, other times a heartwarming animal-loving story, other times a tearjearker about the lives of the people involved with the story. None of these are carried out very well. What were left with is a mess that I'm sure Twain would turn over in his grave if he had to watch.
