    Had not seen this since I was a kid, watched it with my daughter. She loved it. I thought, well, its not really a good movie. Plot-wise it makes little since and the time line is squishy. Its well enough made, but a very light family adventure. But it is fun, and it does do exactly what it was made to do - delight little kids. Its full of adventures and cool tree houses and exotic animals. So you can't really fault it for being what it intends to be. But its not something I'd watch on my own anymore.
