We gave it a B

Boys will like Tom and Huck for the nonstop adventures: a runaway attempt down the Mississippi, a hunt for a hidden treasure, and battles with the knife-throwing Injun Joe. Girls will like it for the cute, throaty Jonathan Taylor Thomas (Home Improvement) and his close-up kiss with Becky (Rachael Leigh Cook). On video, this umpteenth adaptation of Mark Twain’s classic The Adventures of Tom Sawyer should rope in both crowds. It’s a shame, though, that the movie bashes kids over the head with the never-desert-your-friends moral while failing to convince us that the boys wouldn’t sell each other down the river. B
