But the ultimate challenge lies ahead when a band of cutthroat pirates threaten to destroy the Robinsons' makeshift paradise.

My Thoughts:

I found this one to be a really fun film. Sure there is a lot of unrealistic stuff here, but that is easily forgiven. I thought the entire cast did well and I liked seeing all the different types of animals. This film has plenty to laugh at and I found it top be just a feel good film. I had to watch my roommate's copy but I do definitely hope to add this one to my own collection before too long.
