Culver's treasure
24 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Filmed in the beautiful lake town of Culver, Indiana Little Savages is very fine family film. It's the kind of place that you might want to settle down in especially since the bad folks of two generations are dealt with expeditiously in the end.

Little Savages certainly has the look of a Disney Studio product with Disney veterans Adam Hicks, Kenton Duty, and Leigh-Allyn Baker in the cast. Duty is a good kid and Hicks the town bully and both are rivals for the Katherine McNamara.

McNamara and her nerdy brother Noah Lomax are visiting for the summer with their rather eccentric aunt Baker. They get involved in a treasure hunt specified by the town's late richest citizen and in the end it comes down to one of those kooky wills that you see in so many films the provisions with must be scrupulously enforced.

I liked the film it has a nice gentle pace and feel to it and the cast is a winning one. I liked Leigh-Allyn Baker when she was in Good Luck Charlie, she was a zany mom and her zaniness only increases in Little Savages. And I do like the way that young Mr. Lomax deals with bullies.

A nice family film indeed.
