March 15, 1993 -- ``Incredible Journey'' is a remake of the 1963 film of the same name about the same subject. This time, instead of a narrator, Disney gives the two dogs and a cat trying to make a long journey home through the wilderness voices of their own.
The actors supplying the voices, Michael J. Fox, Sally Field and Don Ameche, do a terrific job, helping to give the animals more personality. The Disney photographers and animal handlers do their usual fine job. The story is funny and moving. There isn't a dry eye in the house when the film is over and of course it has a happy ending. It will teach kids more about love, loyalty and friendship than 10 run-of-the-mill Hollywood films staring so-called humans.
There aren't many family movies made in Hollywood these days, and this is an exceptional one. Take your kids, but don't let them have all the fun. This film will appeal to anyone of any age who doesn't have a heart of stone. It rates an A-.
