Where the red fern grows is the best movie ever, and i think its enjoyable for anyone.

While the movie version of Where the Red Fern Grows is not quite as good as the book by Wilson Rawls, the film is still a quality family film and very much worth watching if you are a fan of the novel.

This movie shows how the old times used to be and how much respect kids have towards older people and kids had to work for things they wanted and money was super tight, kids didn't have there parents buy them everything they wanted, and this movie shows exactally that, defiently worth watching again and is very inspiring for anyone.

There are times when deep, clever plots, and intense dialogue serve no purpose, and this film is a shining example of this.

A movie so steeped in virtue it's breathtaking.

As a child I'd probably have eaten this movie up and wish I could have enjoyed it then rather then so much later.
