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

The famous 1813 novel by Johann Wyss has been turned into a fine adventure film under Walt Disney's supervision, although purists may resent the way the original narrative has been souped up with pirates and other innovations. Full Review

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
