Review

Our Score
This junior version of "Crocodile" Dundee was another vehicle for Home Improvement star Tim Allen that failed to make much of a dent in the UK market. Allen plays a New York financier who discovers he has a teenage son (Sam Huntington) who's been brought up by an Amazonian tribe. The child's arrival in New York is the cue for the usual "fish out of water" gags. It's an amiable but predictable affair, and Martin Short is wasted in a silly Russian Mafia subplot.

Summary

A businessman ventures deep into the Amazon to look for his estranged doctor wife seeking a divorce, only to discover he has a 13-year-old son who has been raised as part of a jungle tribe. The boy is sent back to New York with his father, but has a lot to learn about the modern world. Comedy, starring Tim Allen, Lolita Davidovich, Martin Short, JoBeth Williams and Sam Huntington.
