Great family entertainment

The 2nd of 3 episodes of The Wilderness Family. The first dealt with their adventures during their first summer in their Rocky Mountains homestead, after forsaking their L.A. life. The present episode was released 3 years later. The main actors are the same, except that teenage Heather Rattray replaced pre-teen Hollye Holmes as the daughter. The setting is the same, except it's fall and winter instead of summer. There are the expected joyous and terrifying experiences with various animals. Again, they have 2 bear cubs as pets, which look the same size as 3 years ago! They have a milk goat that their pet bears and raccoon play havoc with. A beaver gnaws a tree that almost falls on some. One night, a wolverine kills all their chickens. Eagles, a bobcat, cougar and innumerable deer are seen. Wolves threaten periodically and have at least 2 fights with the family dog, Crust(strange name!). There is a fight in the snow between a bull elk and a pack of wolves, before Skip(the father) shoots the elk for food.

The boy(Toby) and girl(Jenny) become lost in a blizzard, and dig out a "snow cave" to survive. Pat(the mother) becomes real sick with pneumonia, so Skip begins to walk out to fetch a doctor, since their radio broke. Meanwhile a mean wolf named Scarface attacks the cabin. In the confusion, the kerosene lamp is knocked to the floor and starts a fire, which miraculously is extinguished before much damage. On his trip, a small avalanche knocks Skip down, but he survives. The film ends with the beginning of spring.

Along with episodes 1 & 3, this is great family entertainment, although small kids may be frightened by the fierce fights. I can't say that one episode is better than the others.

Some reviewers call Boomer, the periodic mountain man visitor, creepy. I didn't get that impression at all. He seemed like an experienced grandfather. ..Some reviewers complain there is essentially no plot. Well, there's enough interesting things going on without a complicated plot. The same is true of some raucous comedies and some musicals.

Skip seems like a superman, who can take care of every situation and never gets significantly hurt in his various falls and fights. He doesn't seem very emotional. In contrast, his wife Pat is often very depressed after a traumatic event, and sometimes cries.

The cinematography is simply breathtaking. with frequent closeups of faces, and great shots of the animals and fights, and the spectacular terrain.

"Let's keep the record straight, Boomer -- wolves do not attack people."

Wilderness Family sequel that continues the adventures of our beloved family of irresponsible hippies who forsook the city life to live in the mountains, befriending wild animals. It's pretty much more of the same as the last one, except here the little girl's age has been accelerated to make her a teen, despite only taking place six months after the last film. Robert Logan and Susan Damante-Shaw return, as does George "Buck" Flower as the creepy wandering mountain man friend of the family's. More corny music, this time with songs from Barry "Greg Brady" Williams. The natural scenery is, of course, the highlight and the best reason to watch this. They make living in the wilderness look so appealing I was tempted to try it myself, until I remembered how much I hate bugs and snakes and how much I enjoy indoor plumbing and food that doesn't bite me.

One of the worst movies ever made

If this movie (coughs..production) was written with the intent of being a comedy, I'd rate it 10 stars!

This is a horrible movie when it comes to presenting a real life experience in the wilderness. All throughout the movie, the father behaves like a joking idiot. The mother, how she married such a dope is beyond comprehension. They have NO clue on how to live in the wilderness. They obviously didn't make any preparations to do so.

In every scenario in which the children (or family for that matter) are subjected to life and death situations, the father behaves as though his brain went on a vacation. Grizzly bears are attacking (you do know how to shoot a bear...right Dada?)...wolves are attacking family....(you guessed it, Dada just shoots in the air....and then's OK)...seriously?????????

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.


"How To Make Sure Everyone Knows That Dada Is A Complete Moron And Does NOT Know How To Take Care Of And Make Sure His Family Survives"

If you want to watch a comedy .... JUMP IN!!...otherwise...don't waste your time on this one.

PS. Jesus Christ loves you more than you could EVER imagine (yes, the reader), and died on the cross for your sins and mine. Give Him Your Life While There is Still Time.
