Movie Review Friday: Mandie and the Secret Tunnel

Welcome to another Movie Review Friday, the time when I review a family-friendly video I recently had the chance to watch with my family. I recently reviewed Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure, so I thought I would go back a bit, and review Mandie and the Secret Tunnel, movie #1 in the Mandie movies series.

In this 1899-set film, Mandie's father dies while trying to save her from a wolf attack. Mandie then runs away from home with the help of some of her dad's Indian friends. Upon learning that she has an Uncle that she never knew, she escapes to his house. But when she arrives there, Mr. Jason (Dean Jones) informs her that her Uncle recently died in a shipwreck. After getting over the initial shock, Mandie is asked to help find her Uncle John's will. Because of her Uncle John's many secrets and hidden tunnels, she recruits the help of two friends Polly and Joe. In the process of looking for the will, two strangers arrive claiming to be the rightful heirs. It is only a matter of time before the will is found, and in the process of searching, Mandie discovers her true heritage.

Mandie and the Secret Tunnel is definitely family friendly. You won't have to worry about anything objectionable popping up. Plus, this video is hilarious, creative, and very well done. It is definitely one of my favorites, and if you're looking for a mysterious, family-friendly film to watch, this would be a great option.

Possibly most enjoyable about Mandie and the Secret Tunnel is the excellent choice of characters. Each character played his part perfectly and made the story seem to come to life. Also, the mystery provided by a family legend, which guided Mandy through the search for the will, was fascinating and very enthralling.

I enjoyed Mandie and the Secret Tunnel from beginning to end -- the characters, the mystery, the storyline, and all the rest. I also recommend you check out the sequal Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure (You can find my review here). Check out the official trailer, and definitely consider checking out this film for your next family movie night!
