I got a lot more out of this movie than I expected. It was just starting to drag after about a quarter hour but then the dog gets separated and the adventure begins. It reminded me a lot of, 'The Incredible Journey (1963).'
Great for young children. There is a little bit of threat.
I particularly liked, 'Big Kitten.'
