    A pure 90s popcorn thriller! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I miss films like these and the 90s pumped out heaps of them. The scenes along the rapids were pretty intense along with Kevin Bacon. I Also found myself chuckling at John C. Reilly's performance in this, he was so dopey and appeared to have no idea what was going on.

    Such a magical and fun film! I watch it at least once a year. It's a fantastic story that uses it's music, costumes, special effects and cinematography to perfection.

    A suprisingly decent film with some stellar performances from it's cast. The themes of the film are very relevant and definitely raise a few issues in society, especially with the evolution of social media. It's a ballsy film that challenges it's viewers, but at it's core it has a powerful message to tell.

    All the actors on board here are all a talented bunch and the idea itself seemed foolproof for a family comedy. But what let's this film down is a poor script and a messy execution. It also seemed the film was at times trying to go about things too politely. I did get a few laughs here and there and I'm certain there will be some kiddies out there that will enjoy this.
