| Mildly entertaining movie for young kids.
The main writer of this kiddie flick is none other than Christopher Atkins. Yup...the one from "The Blue Lagoon". His screenplay is harmless enough but it probably won't stimulate anyone over the age of 12 or so.

Some incompetent thieves (are there any other kind these days?) get away with an armored truck carrying a bunch of gold. They end up driving the truck into a pond or river or some kind of body of water and the truck gets stuck. Nearby, there are a couple of kids home alone on a farm while their parents are away running some errands.

The thieves tie up the kids and it is up to a few of the animals on the farm to save the day. It's all cute enough but there are several problems. One is that the crooks are so annoying. I don't think I can handle watching any more bad guys who are bumbling idiots. Watching them act dumb and be the victims of slapstick violence gets dull awfully fast.

Another distraction includes animatronic animals that make the animals at Chuck E. Cheese look positively lifelike by comparison. Also, the little boy in the movie, maybe 7 years old or so, actually builds a tank (complete with a working turret!) using power tools. I just couldn't suspend my disbelief enough for that one.

Overall, it had some cute moments but nothing of any real interest or importance ever happens. George Hamilton, Emma Samms and Greg Evigan all have roles but none of them have too much actual screen time. Kids who are easily entertained and like animals will probably enjoy this, but all others should skip it. 3/10
