I originally saw this film on the television and enjoyed it so much that I bought it so my family could enjoy it too. It is a great family film, lots of adventure and interesting characters. I watched it with my 14 year old son, my partner and my Mum and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. I would totally recommend this film if you're looking for something for all ages.

THIS IS A EXCELLENT FAMILY FILM I LOVED THE CHARACTER PECOS BILL PATRICK SWAYZE REALLY SURPRISED ME PLAYING THIS PART BUT HE DID IT BRILLIANTLY,THE STORY TELLS OF A YOUNG BOY WITH A GREAT IMAGINATION WHEN IT COMES TO THE WILDWEST,AS WHEN HIS FAMILY ARE IN TROUBLE WITH THREAT OF DEATH IF THEY DO NOT SELL THEY'RE LAND TO THE RAILROAD, PECOS BILL COMES TO THE RESCUE,HE ARRIVES IN A TORNADO ON A BEAUTIFUL BLACK HORSE CALLED WIDOW MAKER. PECOS TAKES THE BOY ON AN ADVENTURE WHERE THEY TEAM UP WITH A WISE LUMBERJACK AND A RAILROAD WORKER TOGETHER THEY SHOW THE BOY HOW HE CAN DO ANYTHING EVEN OUT SMART THE NASTY LAND GRABBER AND STOP HIM IN HIS TRACKS, I LOVED THE PART WHERE PECOS BILL GAVE THE BOY WIDOW MAKER AND WHERE THE BOY PLEDGED WITH THE TEAM BEFORE GOING IN TO HIS FAMILY AND HIS FATHER STANDING IN THE DISTANCE FEELING PROUD SEEING HIE SON WITH THESE HEROS. IT WAS A REAL SUNDAY FAMILY SIT DOWN AND MY 14YR OLD AND MY HUSBAND LOVED THE FILM TOO AS I KNOW MY HUSBAND WOULD HAVE FELL ASLEEP IF IT WAS BORING BUT NO WAY WE ALL LOVED IT. GREAT FILM FOR ALL.

Format: DVD
"Tall Tale - The Unbelievable Adventure" was a huge flop on its release and only made back a third of its budget for Walt Disney. A bad day at the office, which did not exactly encourage them to make more westerns! Admittedly it is not a great film, but it most certainly deserved a better fate than it got. The movie uses a slightly wacky screenplay by Steven L. Bloom and Robert Rodat that taps into the American folklore figures Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan and John Henry. These three were actually 20th century literary inventions known as 'fakelore', and they were known as 'big man' characters. They seem to have their origins in the tall tales that cowboys recounted across the campfire in days gone by, especially Pecos Bill who can lasso a tornado. Not easy that!

The wildly imaginative plot has these characters helping a young boy and his family in the fight to save the pristine wilderness of Paradise valley against a greedy and ruthless developer played by Scott Glenn. The three heroes resemble a modern American version of King Arthur and his knights sleeping until England, when in dire peril calls upon them once again. And so they come! The film also cleverly looks at the decline of folk culture and America's transition from mythic heroes to a world of grasping tycoons. All a bit much for the young audience that the film was aimed at! Pecos Bill comes with his horse widowmaker, and Paul Bunyan has his rather noticeable blue ox. Patrick Swayze is surprisingly good as Pecos Bill. There is a funny scene where a man is foolish enough to insult Texas in his presence. It wasn't big and it wasn't clever! The late great Burgess Meredith makes an uncredited appearance as does William H. Macey.

This UK DVD is an Anamorphic Widescreen transfer of this GREAT Disney movie.

Unlike the US DVD which is a Fullscreen transfer.
