The umpteenth adaptation of the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, it's also one of the dullest. Jonathan Taylor Thomas (Home Improvement) and Brad Renfro (The Client) play the title characters, and we follow them around as they search for buried treasure and outsmart the famed Injun Joe (a seriously outdated character).

Disney has really gone too far on this one. The story is only marginally faithful to the original Mark Twain novels. Needless slapstick is added in, because somebody thought that Thomas and Renfro were supposed to put on some kind of contemporary Laurel-and-Hardy act, instead of staying true to the characters more interesting traits. As for the kids, for whom this seems to be geared, get those bedsheets ready. Because they'll be bored to sleep after the first 10 minutes into the movie. If you really want to experience the adventures of Tom and Huck, here's a novel idea (no pun intended). Read the books!
