3.0 out of 5 stars Disney versus Tom and Huck 10 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is highly selective in its appropriation of Twain's novel, Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The (Oneworld Classics). There is little here to reproduce the authentic atmosphere of the 1840s. Everyone talks in a modern accent and idiom and there is not a slave to be seen anywhere. The most incongruous feature of this movie is Becky Thatcher, who acts just like a post-feminist young woman of the 1990s (as opposed to the 1840s), and stridently refuses to be told what to do by anything in possession of a penis. The most bizarre scene of all is in the church, where she punches Tom incredibly hard, at least judging by the mighty 'thwack' on the soundtrack. Only the Widow makes a token gesture of disapproval at this astonishing behaviour in a young lady.

Miraculously, Tom is completely uninjured by this act of violence; he doesn't even get a nosebleed (despite his dabbing his nose with his finger - why he's doing this is a mystery since there's clearly no blood). Becky's violent response is surely out of all proportion to Tom's supposed 'offence'. As is often the case with Disney, violence is treated as light-hearted, comical and devoid of consequences. As a result, when Disney requires a genuine threat (as in the scene with the Doctor and Injun Joe in the graveyard), it has to ramp up the portrayal of violence to a maximum of luridness.

In Twain's novel, all the boys are barefoot and think nothing of discarding their clothes to go swimming. In this movie, with the exception of Huck, none of the boys are barefoot, such a state of nature being opposed to Disney's sense of middle class decency. Indeed, everyone seems to be clad in excessive layers of fabric. (And as for swimming - forget it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, cropped to hell... 15 July 2013
Format:DVD
This is a great movie from the 90s with cheeky JTT (Home Improvement) and the sadly departed Brad Renfro (The Client). How tragic to offer this in a savagely cropped 4:3 version with most of that wonderful wide-screen picture removed!

You simply have to see this film in its original 2.35:1 widescreen ratio to appreciate just what is missing. Fortunately, it is available in this format, though more expensive. In my view, if you can find a copy of the Disney PAL Euro-release (see picture), it's well worth the extra pennies.

At the time of writing, there are some in the Used section...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but Flawed Star Vehicle 2 July 2008
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Tom Sawyer (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) is being best friends with fellow orphan Huckleberry Finn (Brad Renfro). Against his Aunt Polly's (Amy Wright) wishes, Tom spends every moment he can with Huck.

And that leads to trouble. When they sneak into a cemetery late one night, they witness Injun Joe (Eric Schweig) kill Doc Robinson (William Newman) and frame drunk Muff Potter (Michael McShane) for it. Knowing that Injun Joe will come after them if they squeal, they take a vow of silence.

There is plenty of fun around town, especially when pretty new girl Becky Thatcher (Rachael Leigh Cook) is around. But Tom can't get the murder out of his mind, especially when Muff goes to trial. Will he do the right thing?

It's funny that this movie is called Tom and Huck since it is obviously based on Twain's Tom Sawyer and just as obviously created as a star vehicle for Jonathan Taylor Thomas during the height of his popularity. They try to clean up his character, which is a shame because he would have been brilliant as the quick thinking, trouble causing Tom of the book. Instead, here he is more Huck's follower, and there seems a bit of hero worship to their relationship, with Huck being too cool for the younger Tom.

This movie does include many of the famous scenes from the novel. And there is plenty of fun along the way. The funniest scene is the scene in the church. The novel still pulls it off best, but this one comes close.

But this movie is also scarier than many takes on the story. Injun Joe is down right creepy, and there are several scenes that might scare the younger members of the viewing audience.

Despite the fun, I just can't get over how they've changed the characters. This isn't a bad version of the Twain classic, but it isn't good either.
