Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Beautiful vistas, Thora Birch and a cute bear can't compensate for the routine story and sloppy direction of this old-fashioned family adventure about the courageous efforts of two children to find their missing father."

‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
