I watched this DVD with my daughter the other night. It is a wholesome story that the whole family can enjoy. As with many movies made for DVD, the acting isn't stellar. However, even at a sometimes sophisticated 13 and having not read the books, my daughter seemed to enjoy it well enough. Since the movie was not based on the first book in the series, we were missing some of the background, but not enough to not be able to follow the plot. I suspect that the comedic tone that was splattered throughout wasn't part of the original book series, so that is something to be aware of if you've been a fan of the books and are looking for a visual version with the same flavor.
The story revolves around an adventure that Mandie has with her mother, whom she was recently united, two of her friends, and her Uncle John into the Lost Antler Cave-Mine to retrieve something very valuable. Of course, there are some evil conspirators in their way, not to mention the poisonous gas in the cave. Below you can watch the official trailer to get a feel for the film.
The DVD comes complete with Behind the Scenes Featurettes, a gallery of over 1700 still photos, MP3 music from the soundtrack, and a printable Discussion and Activity guide. You may also be interested in going to the official site of Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure to learn more about the movie.
