Now, speaking of this film's cast alone - the casting director should get an award for outstanding cast! Meryl Streep blooms and ultimately becomes her character (no surprise here, she is after all Meryl Streep); David Straithairn never ceases to surprise you; Kevin Bacon is seductively evil (which is no great stretch, yet deserves praise); John C. Reily and Joseph Mazzello add charm and evelop the roles into smooth rounded edges, making for an enjoyable romp through the river wild.

Bacon is so good as the bad guy. The show overall is OK but nothing great.

The family trip turns into a nightmare as they travel down the river with the armed men and tells of the family's efforts to thwart the robbers and of how their shared danger helps to mend the relationship between Gail and Tom.

A most enjoyable roller coaster ride (or white water rafting ride, I should say) with spectacular action. Kevin Ba...
