Midweek Mention... Swiss Family Robinson
Manage episode 346505687 series 2645791
Our Disney themed week begins with a review of 1960's SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON. After their ship is wrecked on a deserted tropical island, a family is forced to make a new home whilst simultaneously fending off a menagerie of dangerous animals and evading a band of cut-throat pirates. For many, this story will occupy a special nostalgic place in their heart and it's true that the plot and incredible production design still impress, whilst the presence of the great John Mills compensates for the painful performance from Ken Corcoran but unfortunately the distressing and frequent scenes of animal cruelty render this once classic family movie unwatchable. Our review is great though.
We love to hear from our listeners! By which I mean we tolerate it. If it hasn't been completely destroyed yet you can usually find us on twitter @dads_film, on Facebook Bad Dads Film Review, on email at email@example.com or on our website baddadsfilm.com.
