The Swiss Family Robinson, like most of Walt Disney's screen versions of the children's classics, is good Disney and bad culture. Full Review
Rating: B+ -- Chock-full of exotic locations and animals, desert-island DIY ingenuity, and high-spirited excitement, with a poignant subplot involving the rivalry of the two elder sons. Full Review
Decent Films Guide
Rating: B- -- There's something for everybody in this Disney's live action adventure made for the entire family, which may explain why it was the most commercially popular film of 1960. Full Review
It's hard to imagine how the picture could be better as a rousing, humorous and gentle-hearted tale of family love amid primitive isolation and dangers. Full Review
New York Times
It's no Pirates Of The Caribbean but the spirit of adventure, and Disney's high production values, means that there's still some fun to be had watching this wholesome family adapt to island life. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- The escapist atmosphere is still difficult to resist.
Rating: 1/4 -- ...a crudely calibrated series of 'thrills,' each timed for maximum sustained interest. Full Review
Fleeing from Napoleonic oppression, the Robinson family get shipwrecked and marooned on an island inhabited by tigers, elephants and zebras. They soon feel at home, once their majestic tree house--complete with running water--is set up. However, the Robinson's must face a danger even greater than nature: treacherous pirates!
