Our Score
Not only is this easily the best of Disney's true-life adventures, but it's also far superior to the studio's dumbed-down 1993 remake, Homeward Bound: the Incredible Journey. The humans in the cast rather let the side down with some wooden performances, but the animal stars - Syn (as Tao the Siamese cat), Muffey (Bodger the bull terrier) and Rink (Luath the labrador) - are outstanding as the abandoned pets who make their way across 250 miles of treacherous Canadian wilderness to find their owners. Subtly narrated by Rex Allen, the encounters with bears, mountain lions and a disgruntled porcupine make for compelling family viewing.


The owners of a cat and two dogs leave their pets with a friend in a remote area of Canada while they take a holiday abroad. When the minder embarks on a hunting trip, the three animals find themselves unattended and set out on a hazardous journey through the wilderness to get back home. Disney adventure, starring Emile Genest and John Drainie.
