Adventure for the whole family.
Twelve-year-old Jimmy Dobson ends up with more adventure than he counted on when he makes friends with a mistreated bear cub at the circus. Charlie Yellowhorse, who works at the circus, tells Jimmy about a magic time-travel cave where he can release the bear into the ancient wilds of the past. With the help of Charlie, Jimmy frees the bear cub and heads for Grizzley Mountain. When they reach the cave, Jimmy ends up in 1870 all by himself and has to find his way back before sunset on the second day or he will be stuck in the past forever. With some help from his new friends and special people from the past, Jimmy again rescues the bear cub and sends him back to the past with his friends.
I enjoyed this movie because Family movies of quality are hard to come by these days. The acting is over-done my some (The circus owner.) and under-done by others (Dan Haggerty). Even so it is an enjoyable way to spend some Family time together.
