This heroic tale chronicles the courageous exploits of the Robinson family after they are shipwrecked on a deserted island. Using teamwork and ingenuity, they skillfully overcome the obstacles of nature and transform their new home into a "civilised" community. But the ultimate challenge lies ahead when a band of cutthroat pirates threaten to destroy the Robinsons' makeshift paradise.

Is it an adventure classic, a great Disney family film - or is it a dated and badly acted load of old tosh?
My vote is for the great family classic - my kids nearly wore out the VHS tape we had, and my grandchildren really enjoyed watching it on DVD, even though they've been weaned on modern action films and computer games.
Watching it now, I do wonder at the somewhat unusual mix of animals and also at the age of some of the actors. Janet Munro (Bertie/Roberta) was 26 when the film was made...
Nice, wholesome old-fashioned family viewing - 4/5 stars.
