Silly Spoof of a Classic

by mehaul on Aug 27, 2010

I guess trying to modernize a classic is okay. Disney does it fairly well here. Instead of a deck hand, we have an abandoned fighter pilot. Instead of a ship wreck for provisions, he finds a Japanese WW II sub. Instead of another guy he is blessed with the georgeous Nancy Kwan. Half the movie Disney takes advantage of Dick Van Dyke's face which is a cast of its own, so in that regard, Disney 'cast' well for the 'castaway'. The other half of the movie is a riotous romp around the island which Crusoe has transformed with the salvaged sub gear. Hilarious at times but trite at times too. Worth the watch for youngsters who are interested in the tales of Crusoe. There are no special features on the DVD.
