A really enjoyable film, and a loyal recreation of the literary classic

Writer-director Stephen Sommers has made a conventional literal film, in which the acting of the two leads never rises above the mediocre, thus failing to endow the tale with the stirring mood that it deserves.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Adventures of Huck Finn is a 1993 family-friendly Disney version of the Mark Twain novel set in the pre-Civil War South. Unlike the novel, there's no use of the "N" word, but the anti-racist message is clear. The immorality of slavery, the importance of knowing right from wrong, and a celebration of friendship and adventure are all on display. Huck is a fearless child, abused by a selfish and drunken father. Frightening situations arise in his quest to help his runaway slave friend get to the safety of the North, but it's his failings and his struggles to overcome them that make him a character kids will identify with and perhaps admire. Language includes "ass," "butt," and "hell." Feuding families shoot and kill each other. A slave is nearly hanged but saved at the last minute. A boy is shot and killed. Another boy is shot in the back but survives. A little blood is seen. Thieves die on a sinking ship. A criminal is killed by his partners. Men are tarred. A corpse is dug up. Two men try to scam a wealthy grieving family out of their money.
