Walt Disney studios had previously adapted Sheila Burnford's classic animal-adventure novel The Incredible Journey in 1963, and the story proves just as durable in this popular 1993 version, in which the heroic trio of animals are given voices provided by Don Ameche, Michael J. Fox, and Sally Field. They don't actually speak (like the clever critters in Babe), but we hear their "voices" as the lost household pets--Shadow the golden retriever, Chance the bulldog, and Sassy the cat--survive a harrowing series of adventures as they struggle to find their way home. Perfect entertainment for kids, this frequently clever movie offers an abundance of wildlife and beautiful location scenery, and the vocal performances by Ameche, Fox, and Field are surprisingly effective. A hit with parents and children alike, the film was followed by a sequel in 1996. --Jeff Shannon
Chance, stop! The blouse is dead!
That's right! And I have to shred it into teeny, tiny little pieces and I -
- I swallowed a button.
Oh, what a shame... Too bad it wasn't a zipper!
Hey, you better beat it powder puff before I turn you into dog meat!
Oh, is that any way to speak to a petite dewdrop... you big flat-faced butt-sniffer?
