Our Score
Quite what Disney hoped to achieve with this anaemic adventure is anyone's guess. Director Charles Jarrott seemed to think he could thrill youngsters with a plane crash, a storm at sea, a pair of young stowaways and some scene-stealing animals, while amusing the grown-ups with the African Queen-like banter between pilot Elliott Gould and missionary Geneviève Bujold. Wrong! This is all at sea in every sense of the phrase and, what's more, it's little fun. Clearly there was no intention of insulting the Japanese, but the two soldiers still fighting the Second World War on a Pacific island are at best horrendous caricatures.


A rough-and-ready pilot reluctantly agrees to fly a prim missionary, two young stowaways and a cargo of wild animals across the Pacific, but the journey ends in disaster when they are stranded on a remote island. Disney adventure, starring Elliott Gould, Genevieve Bujold, Ricky Schroder, Tammy Lauren and Vincent Gardenia.
