...a crudely calibrated series of 'thrills,' each timed for maximum sustained interest.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Swiss Family Robinson is a 1960 Disney movie in which an 18th-century family on a boat bound for New Guinea shipwreck on a deserted island. Although there's no bloodshed, the violence looks real as the Robinsons do battle with a wide array of animals (sharks, tigers, snakes, etc.), as well as pirates. The pirates who attack the family appear as Asian stereotypes. A teen girl is stereotyped as a helpless damsel unable to survive in the wild without the help of the teen boys. The Robinsons fight, kill, and injure the pirates with swords, rifles, and a variety of improvised defenses such as homemade grenades, explosives, rocks, logs, and a pit occupied by a tiger. Animal lovers will dislike the way the youngest child captures wild animals to keep for himself. The teen brothers joke that by the time they get off the island, they won't care what age the women they see are.
