Jonathan Taylor Thomas stars as America's greatest teenage hero -- Tom Sawyer! No boy ever had so much fun, got into so much trouble, or had so many outrageous adventures! Tom and his rebellious friend Huck (Brad Renfro) witness a midnight killing. They swear not to reveal what they saw -- but that causes a real problem. If Tom doesn't speak up, an innocent friend may be hanged. But if he does tell the truth, the real killer, knife-throwing Injun Joe, will come after him! TOM AND HUCK has it all -- a treasure hunt, a haunted house, a courtroom showdown, a scary chase in a cave, and a valuable lesson for young Tom: when a friend's in trouble, you don't run away!

It's pablum, but at least it's not poison.

Long, tirelessly epic tale of TeenBeat cover boys. Little girls scream, critics fall asleep.

Mark Twain's rascals are hard to recognize in this scrubbed and polished retelling

Unexceptional adaptation, but entertaining movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while Disney toned down Mark Twain's story, there are mature social themes here, including: references to a father beating his son; an oblique comment about a man who ran away from the Civil War; folk superstitions such as curing warts with a dead cat in the graveyard; the difficulty an aunt faces in raising her orphaned nephews; whippings as punishment for misbehaving children; an alcoholic who is suspected of murder; poor "river folk" who travel the Mississippi looking for work; and, a Native American as a cold-hearted killer. 'Parents should be aware that two characters are killed (non-explicit, but very threatening scenes), that a staggering drunk is framed for a murder, that an adult hits kids and threatens to kill them, and a boy refers to being beaten by his father. There is a funeral for a character who is thought to be dead as well as a near-lynching of a man suspected of murder. Scenes of peril include children being chased, a bible used as a defense against a knife attack, and a dream-sequence of a character in danger. Adults are unable to protect children, and children sneak away from home with references to running away.
