Since I'm a huge fan of Harrison Ford, I definitely had to watch this movie at some point. It was the second time in a row that Ford worked with Peter Weir. Indeed, just a year before, they released ' Witness' which was critically lauded and a box-office success.

Movie Diary - 2013 (500 movies items)

"13.4.2013 Harrison Ford tekee yhden vakuuttavimmista rooleistaan hiukan maanisena keksijänä, joka saa jenkkilästä tarpeekseen ja raahaa perheensä Keski-Amerikan viidakkoon, mutta valittevasti unelma paremmasta elämästä ei ole silkkaa ruusuilla tanssimista. "

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Some kinds of bores you will tolerate, and other kinds you will not. "The Mosquito Coast" has the misfortune to be about the second kind of bore - about a man who is zealous in the pursuit of his obsessions long, long after they have ceased to interest anyone else. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"

My List Of Best and Worst Movie Fathers (50 movies items)

" Allie Fox - Played by Harrison Ford Lesson 11 of being a father - just because you can't stand civilization anymore, it's no reason to move your family to a Central American jungle, and when things don't work out the way you hoped, it is really bad form to tell your kids they can't go home because America is not there anymore."

" Watched April 7 - Netflix DVD - Rewatch "We eat when we're not hungry, drink when we're not thirsty, we buy what we don't need and throw away everything that's useful - Why sell a man what he wants?, sell him what he doesn't need - Pretend he's got eight legs and two stomachs and money to burn - It's Wrong - wrong, wrong, wrong." - Allie Fox I saw The Mosquito Coast in the theater, but hadn't seen it since and I should have because it is an excellent movie. It is about a man who is disench"
