Mysterious Island (Sous-titres français) <b>DVD</b> ~ Michael Craig
4.0 out of 5 stars solid family fun, March 1 2003
I've reviewed the VHS version of this movie, and the DVD doesn't add much, but the picture and sound are definitely clearer, and you get a short documentary about the making of the movie.

It's a lot of fun, my kids especially like it, and they did a good job putting it on DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars my youngest likes it, Feb. 16 2003
It's a sweet movie, and it was entertaining enough the first time, but I'll probably never watch it all the way through again. My youngest daughter liked it quite a bit when she was 4-7, and it became part of the regular rotation of comfort films. The music is good, the values are very family oriented, and it's very wholesome.
I got curious about the family on which this movie was based, and I couldn't learn much, but there was such a family, and they are apparently still around and still very rich and connected. One thing I learned is that the person on whom the John Davidson character is based died shortly after marrying the Biddle daughter, although he did leave at least one son. I… Read more
