Movie Reviews

This is NOT the original Sugar Creek Gang
Heather McDougall | Grass Lake, MI USA | 08/13/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I bought the stories on CD, but thought my children would enjoy having a visual to go along with the auditory. It was an awful decision. First, they took all references to God out of the story. This was a beautiful story about a boy and his friends and their individual growth toward a loving Savior. It's now just a story about a gang of boys....oh, and Circus became a girl. I guess they thought it'd sell to girls too if they added a chic. Very confusing to my boys who have heard the story and know that Circus is a BOY. Very disappointing that God can't even be in a story whose original purpose was to share God. This series was written by a Pastor, so it's not like I'm trying to make this about religion....THEY took religion out of a religious story!!!

Original Story!

"Bill Collins, Poetry, Circus, Dragonfly, Big Jim, Little Jim and the rest of the Sugar Creek characters are at it again!

In this follow-up to Swamp Robber, The Sugar Creek Gang's first movie, the gang takes off on a canoe trip to search for a legendary fish that Old Man Paddler tells them about. I particularly enjoyed this film because it took me on an entirely new adventure with the gang. While it uses the characters and story elements that are found throughout the original book series, the actual story was written specifically for this movie and is a complete surprise!

I know several kids who watch these movies over and over, so the replay value is very high. Also, just like the first film, this DVD has a lot of special features. The director's commentary is very interesting and the behind the scenes videos and outtakes are great. There is also a photo gallery with a few hundred pictures (I'm still working my way through that one)!

Now that I've seen The Great Canoe Fish, I'm looking forward to the next films in this series even more. Good clean family entertainment doesn't come along very often, but so far The Sugar Creek Gang series is batting 1,000%!"
The SUGAR CREEK GANG'S first ALL-NEW adventure!

"FANTASTIC FUN!

As a fan of the original book series I was so happy to see these movies made. Even more exciting is the fact that THE GREAT CANOE FISH portrays a story that I have never heard before, because it is entirely new (not included in the 36 volume book series). It is great fun to see the gang head off to explore new places, and the production team did a great job staying true to the characters while putting them in brand-new situations.

BRAVO!

The extra stuff included on the DVD is great as well. This entire series seems to be packed with bonus materials that are interesting and lots of fun. It's neat to see the real-life actors who play Bill, Poetry, Circus, Dragonfly, Big Jim, Little Jim, Tom Till, Bob Till, and Shorty Long! Excellent casting choices throughout!

I recommend you pick up this episode along with the first installment in the series, Swamp Robber. After watching THE GREAT CANOE FISH you'll want to check out REVIVAL VILLAINS (all-new), SECRET HIDEOUT (from the book), and TEACHER TROUBLE (also from the book)!"
