An earthquake, a flash flood, an avalanche, a volcano, alligators, jaguars, mutineers, and a man-eating Maoris dog the steps of a shipping company owner, a scientist, and the two children of a lost sea captain as they circle the earth along the 37th parallel per instructions in a bottled note the scientist has recovered from a shark's stomach. Only certain facts are discerned from the stained note, especially the words "37 parallel." Teen-age Mary Grant (Hayley Mills), her younger brother, Robert Keith Hamshere, and the scientist, French Professor Jacques Paganel (Maurice Chevalier), trick their way aboard the grand yacht, "Persevero," during a bon-voyage party to see the owner of the shipping company, Lord Edward Glenarvan (Wilfrid Hyde-White), the epitome of British aloofness. With the urging of his own son, John (Michael Anderson Jr.), Glenarvan's luxurious side-wheeler sets sail for the coastal town of Concepcion, Chile in the search for the missing Captain Grant.Written by

good family entertainment but no classic by any means
as far as family entertainment goes,you can't go wrong with this Disney offering.i wouldn't use the word classic to describe it though.it has some fun moments.it's fairly fast paced.but it does tend to get a bit silly at times and it's very predictable and repetitive and there is a bit too much singing involved for my taste.it's very dated,with effects that are definitely from the stone age.the acting is no great shakes either.in fact,it ranges from adequate too downright atrocious.still,it does pass the time,and there's nothing offensive so it's safe for all ages.if you can get around the silliness and the bad acting,you just might be able to kill 98 minutes.for me,In Search of the Castaways is a 5/10
