Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Stars ììì

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey—
a simple story that appeals to a children’s audience—doesn’t give us anything new. It’s a ‘feel good’ movie that supports itself on great voices like Michael J. Fox, Don Ameche, and Sally Fields. Children will enjoy the animal interaction. The ‘talking’ is done with narration and gives one the idea that the animals are telepathically communicating rather than using computer animation for mouth movement.
