This is a really cute movie. It has nothing to do with the Grizzly Adams TV show other than Dan Haggerty being in both. If you try to take it for more than it is you can nit pick it to death. But all in all it is a fun family movie.

A great movie showing respect for nature and wildlife. A great time for all viewers. I found nothing that I wished my children hadn't seen. The bad guys are comical and a little over-the-top, but what do you expect from those working with a circus where everything is exaggerated! As an English teacher, it is a great tool for teaching point-of-view and seeing the same thing from someone else's perspective.

Times have changed, the heart remains unchanged

"A mountain man and modern boy are drawn together through a very special cave linking the present with 1841. Dan Haggerty, who is best know for the 1970's series The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, stars in this movie. Though the beginning credits clearly state that this is an original production, and is in no way related to the Grizzly Adams series, you will find many similarities. I rather enjoyed that however.The Mountain Man lives in a secluded cabin in 1841 in peace with nature and the natives on the vast open land of the Pacific Northwest. The boy lives in harried modern times with his older sister after their parents were killed by drunk drivers-(this is only mentioned not shown).As bullies pick on Jimmy (the boy) they invite him along to the traveling circus where Jimmy finds a very young bear being mistreated and a friendly caregiver amongst the other cruel circus folk.Through trial and error, bravery and determination this bear cub will have a peaceful and free life. How does he free the bear? What happens at the cave? Who helps him? Well, I'm not going to give it all away! Watch and see....The time travel through the cave is done in a pleasant fashion and this is a great movie for the whole family. This left a solid vision in the minds of my little ones about caring for God's creatures.I was very pleased to see Dan Haggerty reprise his mountain man role and I look forward to other productions with him in it.This would make a great gift and you can feel good about giving it."

"It was a wonderful movie that went back in time to the days of the pioneers were a bear cub could run free and be safe. The scenery was spectacular and majestic and I would reccommeen it to anyone especially a family. The actors were all wonderful and they did a good job. The ending is left open for two sequels going either direction. I am looking forward to future movies from the prodcers.
PS thanks for the wonderful movie. Thank you for your couteous services."

"Great family entertainment! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the "bad guys" were too exaggerated and silly. It is a warm story with justice and right values portrayed in a way that isn't pushy. A good time."
