HOMEWARD BOUND: THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY

Watch:

What You Need To Know:

The story begins with the vacation-bound Seaver family dropping off their pets with girlfriend Kate, who lives on a farm. Life on Kate's Farm is fun for "Chance," an American bulldog puppy with a big appetite and nose for trouble, "Sassy," a sophisticated Himalayan cat, and "Shadow," a wise, faithful and elderly golden retriever.

MOVIEGUIDE wholeheartedly recommends HOMEWARD BOUND: THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY for all ages. However, the movie contains some brief semi-violent elements (such as a cat falling into the water, and almost being consumed by the undertow) which are essential to the storyline.

Content:

(B, M, V) Biblical messages of family, self-sacrifice, love, and responsibility very slightly marred by a few instances of name calling, a negative characterization of an overweight guard and semi-violent elements essential to the storyline (cat falls in water and is consumed by undertow of rapids, porcupine needles stick in dog's muzzle, dog falls in ditch, & confrontations with wild animals).

More Detail:

Separated from their human family, three domesticated pets brave the Pacific Northwest wilderness as they embark on a perilous mission to find their masters. An excellent family film, HOMEWARD BOUND: THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY delicately affirms the importance of family, self-sacrifice, responsibility, and love.

The story begins with the vacation-bound Seaver family dropping off their pets with girlfriend Kate, who lives on a farm. Life on Kate’s Farm is fun for “Chance,” an American bulldog puppy with a big appetite and nose for trouble, “Sassy,” a sophisticated Himalayan cat, and “Shadow,” a wise, faithful and elderly golden retriever.

Insight into animal behavior is provided through comical voice overs for each pet. Michael J. Fox adds laughs as Chance (whose risk-taking and curiosity earns him his name), Sally Fields adds virtuous femininity as Sassy, and Dom Ameche adds a seasoned, grandfatherly touch as Shadow. As the story continues, Kate leaves things in the hands of another farmer for a few days, and the pets assume they’ve been abandoned and attempt to find their way back home through the wilderness.
