Movie Reviews

Charlie the Lonesome Cougar a Disappointment
ChrisALM | Florida USA | 03/16/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Charlie the Lonesome Cougar - a great family movie, right? Well, this is typical Disney fare with the animal story line and the great outdoor settings. And, I was pleased (and actually surprised) to find it available on DVD. The disappointment with me was two fold. First, the quality of the picture left something to be desired. While the picture is clear there are too many instances of scratches and splothes showing up during the movie which detracted from the beauty of the scenery. Secondly, the DVD version I watched had several minutes edited out. Maybe the imperfections in the original movie could not be fixed but I'm disapointed that I purchased this DVD, and without warning I ended up with a shorter, edited version. If you like this kind of family movie, get it. However, be prepared for a less than perfect, shorter version of it."

"This one is fun. Couger Mayhem and Couger Love. My six year old loves this one. It's the kind of movie that is fun to watch on Sunday night with a bowl full of popcorn."
Good Old Fashioned Entertainment!!

"This movie has stood the test of time, and it is a throw back to an era when Disney could make a film like this and let it stand on its own merits, instead of making many of the kinds of films it does today.

This is good old fashioned entertainment, and it focuses on "Charlie," and follows his escapades in the Northwest. It is both funny, suspenseful, sad, and maddening, as we see this cougar do the most outlandish things, because, of course, he is a cougar.

A great family film and highly recommended!!!"

"What a treat it was to purchase this VHS for my young children and find such a blast from the past for myself. This wholesome movie brings smiles to the faces of everyone that visits our house (adults and kids alike) and watches it. Light story, good laughs, super narration, beautiful scenery, simple message - animals belong in the wild. The kids watch this one at least once a week, and we've had it almost year. Great buy, money well spent."
